Beer & Sage Battered Onion Rings with Spicy Ketchup – Recipe!

Print Friendly

When I was a kid, I just loved onion rings.  I loved the soft warm onion with the crunchy exterior and of course, a nice spicy dipping sauce.  Today, I don’t eat onion rings very often, but if I do, they definitely have to be good and making your own at home is what I highly recommend.

Beer can enhance the flavor of almost anything, especially batter and when making onion rings, it gives them a richness that’s different if you use milk or water.  I don’t drink much beer, but I choose to eat it instead, and using a beer that’s rich in color like, a Belgium White Ale, adds a slight hint of citrus, along with an earthiness that adds depth of flavor.

Gluten-Free Flour or Rice Flour creates a super light and crispy ring and when you dip them in the Spicy Ketchup, they won’t lose their crunch.  These rings make a great appetizer for watching football, baseball playoffs or binge watching Netflix.

To Prepare:

1.  In a bowl, whisk together flour, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper.  Rough chop six sage leaves and add them to bowl.  Pour in 6 ounces of beer and whisk until smooth.

2.  Peel and slice onions across into 1/2 inch rings.  Separate onion rings.

3.  Heat oil in a saucepan, over medium heat, until 360 degrees.  Add onion rings to batter, about 3-4 at a time.  Place in oil and cook for about 2 minutes per side.  Remove onion rings and place on a paper towel lined plate, sprinkle with salt.  Continue cooking onion rings in batches until complete.  Keep rings warm in a low heated oven.

4.  To make dipping sauce, in a small bowl stir together ketchup, sriracha and maple syrup.  Set aside until all rings are cooked.  Serve immediately, while still warm.  Enjoy!
