Pros:great taste, delivered so they don't thaw
Cons:three onion rings is a serving? can't stop at three
The Bottom Line: These are the best onion rings I've found to make at home and let me enjoy one of my favorite foods.
When I'm not doing a low-carbohydrate diet, I'm a huge fan of onion rings. I much prefer them with a burger or chicken than french fries. One issue I've had is that by the time I get them from the supermarket to my home and put away, they have partially defrosted. Onion rings are one of those foods that even a little bit of thawing out before they cook can really affect the quality, so for years I didn't buy them from the supermarket. Luckily in recent years I get a bi-weekly delivery from Schwans and they make some fantastic onion rings.

These onion rings are thick-sliced sweet onions with a good coating of breading on them. Between the amount of breading and the quick time into my freezer, there's rarely any issue with the ring showing through. Although there are directions to bake these in the oven, they are much better when prepared in the deep fryer. Just don't take them out of the freezer until your deep fryer is hot and you're ready to cook them.
When done, these onion rings come out nice and crisp on the outside with a soft, sweet onion on the inside. I can go through them like crazy because they are so good. They don't even need something to dip them in as the flavor is perfect.
The nutritional facts are about what you would expect from onion rings. Three onion rings is considered a serving and each serving is 220 calories, 100 of which are from fat. That's 11g of fat, or 17% of the recommended daily value. Of that, 1.5g is saturated fat or 8% of the recommended daily value. There's also 390mg of sodium in a serving which is 16% of the recommended daily value. For the record, I never stop at one serving. Three onion rings when they are this good is nothing.
If you're looking for good onion rings and don't want to run the risk of onions that defrost and lose something in terms of flavor, getting a delivery of these onion rings from Schwan's.
