My husband is an absolute fanatic when it comes to onion rings. He LOVES THEM!! Now add some beer batter and he thinks that he died and went to heaven. It was no surprise that he was munching down these Beer Battered Onion Rings with Dipping Sauce like there was no tomorrow. They really are so easy and you can deep fry them or cook them in a heavy pan like a dutch oven using a thermometer. The sweet lime mayo dipping sauce is quick to come together and can be prepared ahead of time. Hubby got a new fryer from his employer for some kind of milestone so we deep fried this batch but we have made them in the dutch oven with a lot less oil with great success. Are you an onion ring fan?
Have you tried any of my other appetizers? Quick and Creamy Crab Stuffed Mushrooms, Crab Rangoon Egg Rolls and Kid Friendly Mozzarella Pepperoni Croissants are all family, friend and reader favorites. Speaking of amazing appetizers these Ham and Cheese Pinwheels from Dinner at the Zoo are amazing.
The batter for these Beer Battered Onion Rings with Dipping Sauce can be whipped together in a matter of minutes. I dip the onions in a little flour to help the batter stick. A quick dunk in the batter and then into the hot oil and presto we have delicious hot beer battered onion rings that taste better than the restaurants. Now dip one of those bad boys into my sweet and spicy Lime Mayo Sauce and I can totally understand my husbands obsession.

- Dip onion rings in flour on shallow plate and then into batter. Fry battered onion rings in the hot oil until browned, about 4 minutes. Place on paper towels while working in small batches.

I personally like working better with the batter when it is thin so I use 1 1/2 cups of beer. You can start with one cup and add more as you work with it till you get it to the consistency that you like.
