Since going gluten free over a decade ago, I’ve only had onion rings one time – and they were a failed attempt. There’s just something about that crisp outside and soft oniony inside that are so delicious. The only problem I have making them at home is using a fryer – we don’t use one often in our house. Instead, we have come up with a method to make our onion rings in the oven and we’re back in business enjoying delicious gluten free onion rings! It’s a lot easier than you’d expect too!
