I am much more interested in thin, crisp onion rings than in the thicker, doughier kind. These are right at home alongside a burger, steak or sandwich but also make a lovely appetizer with the dip of your choice.

Recipe Serves 3-4
- Combine flour, salt and pepper. Mix well.
- Beat egg with 1/4 cup cool water until foamy.
- Set up a bowl or plate containing the flour, a bowl containing the egg wash and a bowl or plate containing the bread crumbs in an assembly line.
- Dredge the onion rings first in the flour, then immediately in the egg and directly into the breadcrumbs, lightly shaking off excess with each step.
- Heat about 1 1/2" of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion rings in the oil, working in batches, for 1-2 minutes or until brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels.
- Serve immediately.
