Sonic Onion rings are made fresh every single day. I worked at Sonic as a teenager and had to help make the Sonic onion rings EVERY DAY…the secret is using vanilla ice milk mix, but using melted vanilla ice milk works just as well.
Sonic Onion Rings Recipe
You can make this wonderful fast food treat, you don’t have to be too exact in measuring anything out. This can be a messy process, and I suggest trying to use one hand for dry ingredients, an another for once you begin to dip the onion rings into the milk. It will go easier this way. I would suggest making a really large batch of these up at one time, and inviting a lot of people. These are messy, but they taste so good.
Original Sonic Onion Ring Recipe
Make your own copycat Sonic Onion rings at home.
- 2 pounds Spanish onions sliced, and rings seperated
- 24 ounces water
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 12 ounces vanilla ice cream melted
- 8 ounces corn meal
- vegetable oil for frying
Place above items on counter in order listed. Dip onion in water, then flour (shake off excess), dip in melted ice milk, then corn meal. Gently shake off excess and place on cookie sheet to air dry for at least 20 minutes. Fry until browned. Sifting the flour and corn meal once in a while keeps lumps out and makes it easier to coat the rings When placing on cookie sheets to save room, lean on top of each other to allow entire ring to dry.
