In honor of National Greasy Foods Day, October 25th, I am re-posting my onion rings.
Yes, onion rings! Those wonderful breaded crispy rings of joy are back on the menu and better than ever. If there’s one thing I strive for, it’s learning new ways of converting all those foods we enjoyed and loved in our gluten eating days…to gluten free. We CAN have our favorite foods…and they can be better than we remember.
With a few simple changes, I adapted Guy Fieri’s Rajun’ Cajun Onion Rings to create these
gluten free onion rings. Kudos to Guy for creating a really good recipe with incredible flavor. Three of the major changes I made were using Vandalia onions instead of his suggested red onions, frying in peanut oil instead of vegetable oil, and single coating the rings instead of a double coat. Light sour cream (and less of it) along with Pamela’s baking mix completes the list of changes and you won’t miss a thing. These onion rings are light, crisp, flaky, savory and full of flavor thanks to his batter and seasoned flour. Give them a try, you’ll never wish for gluten-filled rings again.
