Homemade Onion Rings and Pronto Pups with a side of Tartar

 homemade onion rings and pronto pups
I worked all through high school at everyone’s favorite fast food place in Spanish Fork. Every once in awhile I just get a craving for homemade onion rings and pronto pups! The kids love when we do this because they think its cool that we can make this in our own kitchen.
Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg, separated
1 cup milk (if you like the batter thinner, you can add more milk)
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
Oil for deep-frying
Directions:

  • Start warming your oil to cook.
  • Slice onions into rings. Mix together flour, salt, pepper,thyme and baking powder
  • In another bowl, beat egg yolk, then stir in milk and vegetable oil.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients. Stir until smooth.
  • Dip the onions into the batter, completely covering the onion.
  • Make sure your grease isn’t too hot, after the oil gets hot, I turn it down to a low heat. This will give your onions time to cook in the middle and the outside crust can stay golden brown.
  • Pull onion rings out of the grease and place them on a plate with a paper towel. This will soak up the extra grease.

To prepare your hot dogs; pick your favorite dog and put the stick in the end. Flour the hot dog, it will help the batter stick better.
