- 3 cups flour
- 2 eggs, separated - which means you separate the egg white from the egg yolk.
- 1 cup beer
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- Salt to taste
- 3 large onions, sliced into rings
- 2 quarts oil for frying
Place 2 cups of the flour into a large bowl. Set remaining cup of flour aside to use for dipping the onion rings before frying. In another large bowl, whisk egg yolks. Mix in beer, butter and salt. Stir the egg-yolk mixture into the flour and mix well.
Allow the mixture to stand 30 to 60 minutes. Heat deep fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, beat the egg whites. Gently combine the egg whites with the batter.
Coat each onion ring with remaining flour and dip into batter. Deep-fry the battered rings, several at a time, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels before serving.
