CONGRATS to the winner of our Made In Michigan basket, Dave! Dave submitted an awesome onion ring recipe made with our Tennessee Hot Crackers. Try if yourself!
2 large Vidalia onions, sliced about ½ inch thick
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout (or your favorite dark beer)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 bag of Sherman’s Hot Crackers (crushed)
Peanut oil, for frying
Combine the onion slices with all the marinade ingredients in a large bowl.
Stir to make sure each onion slice is coated evenly, then cover with cling film
and chill for about an hour.
Combine all of the breading ingredients in a large bowl, then roll the marinated
onion slices in the breading mixture, shaking off any excess.
Repeat with the rest of the onion slices.
Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat to about 350°F.
Fry 5-6 onion slices at a time until the breading is dark golden brown, flipping
several times to ensure the breading cooks evenly and does not burn.
The heat of the oil should drop to about 325°F.
Drain the onion slices on paper towels or on a wire rack, resting for about 5
Combine 1 cup of Duke’s Mayonnaise (or your favorite brand) with 1 cup of Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory and Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce. Mix well and serve.
