Beer-Battered Onion Rings

The crunch is REAL with this one! Having a really good batter is key to getting a nice crunch to an onion ring. I don’t really like vegetables, except when they’re in the form of an onion ring. Tip: it’s way more fun to eat when you plate your onion rings from largest to smallest.
