Onion Rings with Special Sauce
1 large, softball sized onion
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup bread crumbs, preferably panko
3/4 cup flour
Coconut Oil (I used expellar pressed, unless of course you would like coconut flavored onion rings)
In a large skillet, over medium high heat, heat coconut oil. There should be enough oil so that it is about a half inch deep. You know it's hot enough to start frying when you stick a wooden spoon in the oil and bubbles roll off the spoon quickly. Thank you, Rachael Ray, for that tip.
Peel onion and slice into half inch slices, separating rings individually. Soak onion slices in buttermilk for about ten minutes.
Mix bread crumbs and flour evenly, adding several dashes of seasoning salt. Dredge onion slices in flour mixture and allow to set up on a plate prior to frying. Fry rings in an even layer, flipping after about 3-4 minutes. Rings should just start to look a little golden, but they won't be super dark due to the coconut oil. Remove from hot oil and layer on a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet. Season with additional salt, if needed. Repeat until all rings are fried. Keep warm in a 250 degree oven until ready to serve.
1/2 cup mayonaisse
1/2 cup barbeque sauce
Mix together thoroughly. Serve with homemade onion rings.
