“Here is an easy and different onion ring recipe. I've heard people talk before about ice cream being used for onion rings, but had never seen a recipe for it, so I came up with this. Cooking time depends on how many rings you fry at once, and how hot the oil is, so the 20 minutes is just a guess.”
2hrs 20mins

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 medium sized onions, sliced (about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick slices)
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, completely thawed
  • 2 cups flour
  • salt, to taste
  • oil (for deep frying)


  1. Pour liquid ice cream into a medium sized mixing bowl and add onion slices. Toss to coat thoroughly. Let set for about 2 hours, tossing to coat about every 20-30 minutes.
  2. Put flour in a medium or large mixing bowl. Drain onion rings and add to flour. Toss to coat completely.
  3. Heat oil in large pot or deep fryer. When hot add onion rings and fry until golden brown, turning once.
  4. When done, place on paper towel to drain, then salt to taste.
