Easy Onion Rings

I am an "Onion Ring" girl. If given a choice between REAL BATTER DIPPED (not powdered) onion rings or french fries, I would choose onion rings every time. I rarely make them because there aren't too many people in my house that enjoy them like I do (actually only one other person)...BUT last week I decided to cave in and make them JUST because "I" wanted some....I wasn't disappointed. I thought they were amazing and lipsmacken good (especially dipped in fry sauce). They're a little "naughty" because of all the fat...but they taste REALLY good!

Easy Onion Rings
1-2 large white onions, sliced thin (but NOT TOO thin)
2 c. Original Bisquick Mix
1 c. milk
2 eggs
1 t. garlic powder.
1 t. onion powder
Oil for deep frying

Heat oil (2" of oil) in a frying pan or deep fryer until HOT (I found it easiest to cook these in a frying pan). The best way to check and see if oil is hot enough for cooking is to the do the "wooden spoon check". Dip the spoon into the oil, if bubbles form around the spoon its ready, if not, let it continue to heat.

Put Bisquick, milk, eggs, garlic powder and onion powder in a bowl and mix well. Dip onion slices in mixture and then place in HOT oil. Cook until browned on one side, then flip and cook the other side.
Place cooked onion rings on a plate covered with a layer of paper towels. Continue until ALL onions are cooked OR your tired of cooking. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce (I like ranch...of course OR fry sauce)

Fry Sauce: (some of you "outside of UTAH" aren't familiar with this stuff...but its YUMMY)

1 c. MAYONNAISE (not salad dressing)
1/4-1/2 c. ketchup

Mix until smooth and eat up. You can add more or less of either ingredient until you get it to your liking...this is just the way that my family likes it. I have also added barbecue sauce in place of the ketchup or combined WITH the ketchup, to give it an entirely different taste and we like that too....we here in Utah like it on burgers, tacos, as a dipping sauce for french fries, onion rings, tater tots, chicken nuggets....pretty much any greasy fast food dish....if we are going to splurge, why not do it all the way...right?!

Happy Cooking~
