    I like the use of cornstarch instead of flour. It gives a crispier crust.

    They look very tasty. I’ve never tried making onion rings at home. Looks like it’s not as difficult as I would have thought.

    These onion rings look fabulous. When we get onion rings, they’re usually the frozen variety – next time I’ll take a shot at making them with this recipe.

    I may have to be brave and try these…. I have to admit, I’m scared of pan frying things 🙁 LOL! They don’t sound too hard at all, it’s just the pan frying i’m hesitant about.
