I love onion rings. So. So. Much. I don’t have a gallbladder, so I shouldn’t be eating them, but I really can’t help it. Even my husband and Tater (neither of whom will touch an onion in their pure form), inhale these puppies. Sometimes, I even bake them to make them “healthier”. These only take about 20 minutes to make, so you could even make them on a weeknight!
