or heshial circles as they are known to our family, are a really easy to make, fun treat. You might give them consideration with the Super Bowl coming up. Or, you know, they’d be great with any grilled anything.
1 cup flour
1 recipe pancake batter, made up (either use a boxed mix or you could make P-Annie Cakes batter with ingredients you probably have on hand)
several cups plain bread crumbs
1/4 cup sesame seeds, optional
Peel the onions and cut them into 1 inch wide rings. Put them in a bowl of cold water. Place the flour in a small bowl. Place the batter in another bowl. In a third bowl (fourth if you’re counting the water bowl) place the bread crumbs (mix in the sesame seeds here if you’re using them). Get out a big cookie sheet to put the rings on after you’ve battered them. To batter the rings, dip them first in the flour, then in the batter, and finally in the bread crumbs. Place them (not touching each other) on the cookie sheet and proceed until you have battered all of them. You can either put them in the fridge for up to 24 hours or you can fry them right away in canola or peanut oil. It only takes a couple of minutes. Fry them on each side until they are dark golden brown.
