Let's Make It
Cut onions crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices; separate into rings. Reserve small inner rings for another use. Toss remaining onion rings with 1 cup flour in large bowl until evenly coated. Let stand 30 min.
Heat oil to 365ºF in large skillet. Meanwhile, combine cornstarch, onion powder, red pepper, baking powder and remaining flour. Whisk egg and club soda in large bowl until blended. Gradually stir in flour mixture.
Shake excess flour off onion rings. Working in small batches, dip onion rings in batter, turning to evenly coat both sides of each onion ring with batter. Add to hot oil; fry 4 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
These delicious onion rings can be cooked ahead of time. Cool, then place in single layer in shallow pan and freeze until firm. Once frozen, transfer onion rings to freezerweight resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to 2 months. When ready to serve, heat oven to 350ºF. Place frozen onion rings in single layer on baking sheet. Bake 15 min. or until crisp and heated through. (No need to thaw first.)
When serving adults, substitute beer for the club soda if desired.
