Batter and Onions

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups beer, chilled or at room temperature
  • 2 sweet onions

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Louisiana hot sauce or to taste


  1. Batter: Thoroughly whisk together flour and beer. Let the batter stand, covered, at room temperature for at least 3 hours.
  2. Dipping Sauce: Thoroughly whisk together the mustard, honey, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce; reserve, tightly covered, in the refrigerator. Return sauce to room temperature before serving.
  3. Prepare onion rings: Heat oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking sheet or jelly roll pan with paper toweling; reserve.
  4. Slice onions 1/4 inch thick. Separate into rings; reserve.

  7. Continue until all the onion rings have been used.
