Onion rings are good year round, but I tend to crave heavier foods during the colder winter months. Having eaten at shameful high number of chain restaurants in my childhood, I particularly enjoy the slightly sweet, zesty horseradish dipping sauce that often accompanies onion rings. This horseradish-blue cheese dip is my take on that sauce. Click here to see the Food Porn Q&A with Amanda Simpson.
Served with Aioli or Ponzu Sauce (the latter made two days in advance), this recipe is a real crowd-pleaser. Ask the market to peel, devein, and butterfly the shrimp for you.The key to a light batter is combining the right amount of flour and cornstarch. If you add too little cornstarch, the batter will be thick and cakey; too much and the batter will absorb too much oil and become soggy.Adapted from “Welcome to Michael’s” by Michael McCarty.

Beer, barbeque, fried snacks, and finger foods are all standards for gameday get-togethers. This recipe is what happens when everything is thrown together into one dish. Crispy, beer-battered chicken with a tangy barbeque dipping sauce (also made with beer)!
Michael Ferraro serves up these corn dogs at plenty of potlucks and parties, because they're quick and easy. And while this recipe is specifically football friendly with its beer-infused batter, "try using merguez sausage with truffles next time," Ferraro says. It'll be one classy shindig. Recipe from Delicatessen.
As long as there is a beer in the house this is a quick and easy recipe without any fancy ingredients. You can find all the ingredients in a standard kitchen! This batter is great for deep frying white fish. Fresh lake perch and walleye are especially tasty in this beer batter.
This is a really great batter for anything you wish to deep fry. I've had it on fish and onion rings. You mix the batter and then let it stand for about an hour before using. This batter is not gluten free (I haven't tried to adjust the recipe as yet). I don't think that there would be any Aussie who has not eaten beer batter or wouldn't have their own favourite recipe.
