Of Thee I Do Wed Rings

Manchego Crusted Onion Rings

These egg battered onions have a nice sweetness to them that marries with even delicate foods.

2 Spanish onions, thinly sliced

2 eggs, beaten

6 Tablespoons finely grated Manchego cheese

Canola or corn oil for deep-frying

Kosher salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Coat the onion well with egg.  Add the cheese and salt and pepper.  Heat the oil to 360 degrees.  Immerse as much of the onions that will fit in the pan without foaming over, in the hot oil and fry to golden, this takes minutes.  Remove the onions from the oil to paper toweling and repeat with the rest.   Reserve in a warm place.
