Fried Corn Bread Onion Rings
1 Large Onion ( Yellow or White Sweet Onion)
1 Box Corn Bread Mix
1 Cup Oil for Frying
Take off the outside layer of onion skin, be sure to cut off root end and top. Slice onion into rings about 1/4 inch thick. Pour Box of Corn bread mix into medium size mixing bowl. Add all of the onion slices to dry mix. Coat rings with dry mix and remove each ring to a dry plate. Then make corn bread batter according to box directions. Stir well until all lumps are removed. ( If batter is too stiff add a couple of Tablespoons of water) Dredge each onion ring in batter until coated, Shaking off excess back into bowl.
Heat oil on high heat in a small (6-8 inch skillet).
When oil is hot start frying rings. Rings should only take 1 ½ – 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Remove to platter lined with paper towels. Salt to taste and serve. Enjoy!
Note: Using remaining batter, either make fried corn dodgers by dropping a Tablespoon of batter into hot oil. Or you can make corn muffins, using package directions.
