Bombshell Blonde Onion Rings

{Bombshell Blonde} Beer Battered Onion Rings ~ I’ll admit beer in a can is not usually my first choice when I decide on a brewski but the Southern Star Bombshell Blonde had me with it’s kitschy label and rock’n name, not to mention a trusted beer friend introduced me to this tasty 12-ouncer. The Southern Star Brewing Company, located in Conroe, TX offers it’s beer selections throughout Texas, at a few places in the southern states and on “campus” at the brewery tours. I am not really a beer snob – I think more in terms of the fact that I don’t drink beer that often (or in mass quantities) so when I do … well … it should be good and be fairly top notch in my book. You know the saying “Life’s too short to drink bad wine!” – well, I think the same holds true for beer (and really … food for that matter).

After trying this delightfully creamy, golden ale I knew I had to not only have another (Yes, please!) but I had to add it to a dish – Bombshell Blonde Onion Rings. I am slightly picky about my onions but will almost never turn down a crispy, crunchy ring of onion – Bombshell Blonde adds just the right texture and lightness to this recipe and … it doesn’t hurt to have a brew to drink while cooking these up.

Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg and gently mix together.Slowly pour in beer about 1/4 cup at a time while continuing to stir between pouring. Add enough beer to create a slightly thick batter (pancake-esque).
  2. In a large heavy duty pan place enough oil to cover the bottom with about 1/2 inch of oil and place over medium-high heat. Run onion slices through batter and coat all sides then place coated onions into warm oil.Once sides are golden in color flip onions over to brown the other sides. Once both side are golden remove from oil and drain on a paper towel covered plate.
  3. Sprinkle warm onions with a little sea salt if desired. Continue to cook onions the same way until all onions are battered and golden. Serve warm.
