Beer Battered Onion Rings

In honor of Super Bowl Sunday … I present: Beer Battered Onion Rings.

Deep fried and everything. 

I know.  You typically don’t see these kinds of recipes here – but, what the heck.  Why not?  For today only, beer battered onion rings. 


Beer Battered Onion Rings – Recipe from Carol B {family friend}


  • 1 C flour {we used all purpose}
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C warm beer
  • Oil for frying {we used vegetable}
  • 2-3 large white (or sweet) onions, sliced into rings


Begin by mixing together 1 C flour, 2 tsp. baking powder, and 1 tsp. salt in a medium bowl. 

Pour out the beer. 

Add in the beer and egg. 

Mix well. 

The batter should be about the consistency of pancake batter.

Pour vegetable oil into a deep fryer.  Heat oil carefully to 370 degrees. 

While oil is heating, peel and prepare the onions.  You’ll want them to end up in rings. 

Using a fork, carefully dip the onion rings into the beer batter.  Then, place them into the hot oil. 

Cook for 2-3 minutes, flipping once, and use a slotted metal spoon to remove the onions from the hot oil.  Place them on a paper towel to cool. 

Note: Deep frying can be very dangerous – please keep children away from the oil and also follow the directions that came with your deep fryer carefully.  Use caution


  1. OMG, those look TOO good. My husband makes beer battered shrimp once in a blue moon and my kids go crazy for it! Next time he does it and has the oil going I am going to try these for sure!

  2. Want! I just ate dinner, and now this all I can think about eating. Without a deep fryer, I'm assuming I could put a few inches of oil in a deep pot and fry similar to doughnuts?? Also, I don't trust my candy thermometer that I use to measure oil temp...any signs you'd recommend to look out for to know your oil's hot enough? Thanks!

    1. I haven't tried it so I can't vouch for it -- but, I did see this recipe today that makes them using a dutch oven (http://www.justataste.com/2013/01/homemade-beer-battered-onion-rings-recipe). Hope that helps!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
