Sparkling rosé and Sparkling Wine are my top picks for Onion Rings. If you're serving a selection of appetizers, you can't go wrong with these. Both are very food friendly and complement a variety of flavors. The Martini & Rossi Sparkling rosé with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 13 dollars per bottle.

Martini & Rossi Sparkling Rose

Inspired by the famous Piedmont region of Italy, MARTINI & ROSSI Sparkling Rosé is an elegant pink sparkling wine. It’s crafted from a variety of grapes, which are delicately pressed to retain the distinctive, evocative aromas and beautiful color.This beautiful sparkling wine, with an enticing aroma and delicate notes of raspberry and wild rose, proves an excellent aperitif, or for a picnic with friends.

Instructions

Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or dutch oven to 365 degrees F. Separate the onion slices into rings, and set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside. This will help the batter adhere. Gently beat the egg and buttermilk into the flour mixture using hand mixer. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat, then place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping. The wire rack may be placed over a sheet of aluminum foil for easier clean up. Place the bread and panko crumbs out on a plate or shallow dish. Place rings one at a time into the crumbs, and scoop the crumbs up over the ring to coat. Give it a gentle tap as you remove it from the crumbs. The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings.I suggest completing this entire step before starting to fry rings. Its very easy to burn them if youre distracted. I may or may not be speaking from experience. Deep fry the rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. They should float to the top immediately if they dont your oil is not hot enough. Turn rings over once during the frying time. Remove form oil and transfer to a paper towel to drain. Season with seasoning salt, and serve warm. Preparing Dipping Sauce: Mix Sriracha Chili and Crema thoroughly until completely blended. Use more or less of the chili sauce depending on your heat preference.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Depending on the recipe, you might be able to substitute almond meal or flaxseed for the breadcrumbs to reduce the carbohydrate content and up the nutrition. For example, almond meal works well for breading, while ground flaxseed can help with binding.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a brand of gluten-free breadcrumbs.

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

  • If a recipe calls for buttermilk and you don't have any on hand, just pour a tablespoon of white vinegar into a glass and add enough milk to make one cup. Let sit for about five minutes, and voila, a great buttermilk substitute!

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.
