Buttermilk Onion Rings from Emeril

This recipe caught my attention on the TOH bulletin board and was reviewed by Janie and she was giving me a hard time concentrating on anythign as her wonderful way of describing food made me drool and itchy to try this dish!! It is easily made - smells terrific and has this crispy crunch and is boosted with flavor... i would make this again and again... Thanks to Linda and Janie for the recipe and review and Emeril for another keeper!!
Cheers Alissa

Buttermilk Onion Rings

2 cup of Buttermilk
1/2 cup hot sauce ( I used the full amount "Tabasco " - it cooks right away as No heat was detected )
2 large yellow onions, sliced 1/2" thick
2 cups of ap flour
salt and pepper and some Old Bay Spice
2 Tbsp +2 tsp Emerils Essence ( i made a copy cat - see recipe below -in Germany we don't get his products)

Whisk the buttermilk, hot sauce and 2 Tsp of Essence add the sliced onion rings.

Cover and Chill for 1 hour. Heat the oil to 360. Put 2 tsp of essence and the flour in a Ziploc bag and shake till rings are coated. Deep fry and blot on paper towls. Serve with a creamy dip - enjoy!!
