    These were fantastic! My husband fell in love with me all over again after I made them. :) The batter is a bit thick, I will add more beer next time. Also I fried them all the way, so I could've skipped the oven. I had leftover batter and the end batches with more batter turned out best.

    A little time-consuming, but well worth it. They're so good. I sliced the onions a bit thinner than called for. My husband couldn't believe I made such perfect onion rings. I served with a dipping sauce of light mayo, garlic/hot pepper sauce, and sweetened lime juice. Make these for guests- they will think you're a superstar!

    These onion rings are excellent. Used gluten-free flour and beer and get asked to make them often.

    I tried the recipe exactly as it stated, and found it very difficult to get the batter to stick to the onions. I even tried pre-dipping the onions in a light coat of flour fist, which helped a little. All in all, it was very difficult to get the batter to stick. Very disappointed. I should have read the reviews before I set out to make the recipe-I would have tried adding more beer.

    My husband and I really enjoyed these. They do a very good job of satisfying a craving for "real" onion rings wo the fat and calories. I followed the recipe exactly, but added cayenne pepper to the batter and salted them after spraying them.

    I add 1/4 tsp of garlic powder and make enough batter to fry some fish after the onion rings. Batter is really thick but I add a little more beer. Very satisfying when you crave something fried and fast.
