Which type of onion is best for onion rings? And has anyone had any success with gluten-free recipes, like cassava flour?

Hi! I haven't tried it on onion rings, but I just did a bunch of frying where I added potato starch to chicken and its marinade to make a batter for frying. It turned out quite nice. You could probably toss the rings in an egg wash and then the starch, or something similar. Good luck!

I did a trial run if a lemon meringue pie. My meringue turned grey. Why did it do that? I got a new mixer with a stainless steel mixing bowl. Could this have caused it? I am afraid to make another. Or was it because I didnt put it in the oven to toast the top b4 I refrigerated the pie? Thank you for your help.

I have found most types (except spring or scallion) work fine. More important, I find, is making sure the onion rings are patted dry before dipping in coatings...makes for crisper result.

I like a sweet onion like Vidalias.

For GF, you can use almond or coconut flour.

Thank you, have you tried making them with almond or coconut flour before?
