This is a great recipe - the onion rings came out crisp, cunchy, and loaded with flavour. I didn't used any butter or water Just panko crumbs cornmeal and chili flakes. They were perfect. Thanks Mike for a keeper

These where the perfect side to my Tex-Mex burgers. The coating was crunchy and had great flavor. I served them with a salsa and sour cream sauce and they were excellent!
