Ingredients of Onion Rings
2 Large Onions, peeled, cut into rings and each piece separated

1 tsp of Celery Salt

How to Cook Onion Rings
1) In a large ditch oven, add enough oil so that it comes halfway up the sides of the pot, allow the oil to come to 375 degrees.
2) In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, buttermilk, egg, baking powder, salt, pepper, hot sauce, parsley, and paprika so that you have a very smooth mixture.
3) Dip each ring into the batter, shake off some of the excesses and add them to the hot oil. Allow them to cook for about a minute on each side or until deeply golden brown.
4) Drain on a paper towel lined plate and serve immediately!
