Ingredients
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 extra large sweet onion
  • 2 cups complete pancake mix, any brand
  • 1 cup beer
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1/3 palm full
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, eyeball it, or 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • Salt
Directions
  • Heat 1-inch vegetable oil of moderate to medium high heat. If you wish to test the oil, add a 1-inch cube of bread to hot oil. If it turns deep golden brown in color in a count of 40, the oil is ready.

  • Trim ends of onion and peel. Cut into 3/4-inch slices and separate rings.

  • Mix together pancake mix and beer, season with paprika, chili powder and cayenne pepper or hot sauce. Batter should be thick. If it gets too thick, add a splash more beer. Working in small batches of 5 to 6 slices, coat rings of onion in batter and fry 4 to 5 minutes, until evenly golden brown. Turn onions over so that both sides get puffed and cooked. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Season o-nuts with salt while hot. Repeat with remaining ingredients. When all the onions are dipped and fried, turn off oil to cool before discarding.
