Beer Batter


Beer Batter

I got this recipe from an old friend, way back B.C. (before children).  I love the flavor of beer batter, and seeing this recipe reminds me that I need to make onion rings ASAP.  (And beer-battered fish too.  Mmmm.)

1 cup beer (It’s okay.  If you don’t drink, find a friend to drink the other half of the can/bottle.)
1 cup flour
1 ½ tsp salt
2 tsp oil
2 egg whites

In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, oil, salt and beer.  Cover loosely, let sit for 30 minutes.  In a separate bowl, whip egg whites to firm but not stiff peaks.  Fold gently into batter.  Dip items and cook in 375 degree hot oil until golden brown.

I seriously need someone to make this for me. I am never brave enough to fry things myself....
