Cap’n Crunch Onion Rings Recipe

Experimenting with food is fun but it has a price. Sometimes you buy ingredents that you’ll never use, you buy too many ingredients, or worse case you FAIL.  A few days ago, I posted a recipe for Cap’n Crunch Fried Chicken. Unfortunately, I didn’t plan how much Cap’n Crunch cereal I needed so I ended up crushing the whole bag and was left with left over crumbs. I saved it thinking I’ll make the fried chicken recipe again. The crumbs never made it to partner with chicken. Instead I had a craving for onion rings and decided to experiment with the crumbs.

I used a fairly standard beer batter recipe to create a base and then covered it in the cereal crumbs right before frying. The Cap’n Crunch adds a gentle sweetness to the outside as well as a crispier crunch. This is a sweeter onion ring especially since onions add another form of sweetness.

Ingredients
1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup to dust onions
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
1 1/2 cups beer
Cap’n Crunch cereal crumbs
2 Onions
Method
Slice the onions to make 1/4 inch rings. Combine flour, egg, garlic powder, black pepper, and paprika in a mixing bowl and mix with a whisk until smooth (about 2 minutes).  Dust the onion rings in flour and dredge them in the batter. Then take the battered onion and cover it in Cap’n Crunch crumbs and then directly into hot oil. Brown them on both sides and drain on a wire rack or over paper towels.

Enjoy!
