Unlike old fashioned breaded onion rings, this recipes incorporates a whole other snack -- soft pretzels. The latest creation from food blogger and hybrid food expert Nick Chipman of DudeFoods is Soft Pretzel-Breaded Onion Rings. No stranger to either of these salty snacks, he previously made rings breaded with Kool Aid and a bacon-wrapped Doritos version. He also once stuffed soft pretzel balls with mac and cheese.
This savory appetizer was the logical next step. To make your own at home, simply slice an onion horizontally to get inch-thick rings and wrap them in dough. After dunking them in boiling water with added baking powder, they must cool before being baked with pretzel salt sprinkled on top.
