“For all you people who love onion rings..I just have to share this recipe. These are like no others ,I have ever had. They are addictive. Every time we go to Santa Rosa, Ca. there is this little place that serves the best hamburgers and these onion rings.I found this recipe and yep this is it.Dh says mine are even better.The secret is you must slice the onion rings very thin I used my meat slicer.I think a processor may also work. I found this on the web by Jo Mason, thanks Jo.”
