½ cup buttermilk
1 medium egg
1 dash hot sauce
3 medium onions
1 cup self-rising flour
3 cups canola oil
Salt and pepper


Slice onions into quarter-inch slices. Mix buttermilk, egg, salt, and pepper and a dash of hot sauce to create batter. Put onions in mixture to soak.

Refrigerate for three hours, stirring occasionally so batter completely coats onion rings.

Remove onion rings from refrigerator; coat lightly with self-rising flour. Reserve. Let stand for 1–2 hours. Deep-fry in canola oil until golden brown. Salt and pepper to taste.
