Recipe from: 02 March 2011

Ingredients 13
Servings 4
Time 00:10


  • Blue cheese dip:
  • 100
    blue cheese
  • 125
    good quality mayonnaise
  • 125
    thick Greek yogurt
  • 2
    white wine vinegar
  • salt to taste
  • a good few grindings of black pepper
  • Beer batter onion rings:
  • 2-3
    very big onions
  • 1
    self-raising flour
  • salt
  • 340
    stout (any other beer will also do, the stout gives a rich brown colour)
  • vegetable oil for frying


Blue cheese dip
Crumble the cheese and place in your food processor with all other ingredients. Blitz until you have a thick creamy consistency. Refrigerate until needed.

Beer batter onion rings
Mix self-raising flour with salt and beer in a mixing bowl.
It must be a thick, lumpy batter, something like runny porridge(if too thick, add a little ice water or if it is too runny, add a little more flour).
Peel and slice the onions in thick slices and loosen the onion rings.
Throw all the onion rings into the batter and mix until all the rings are coated.
Heat the oil in a deep pan (I use my wok) and when the oil is hot, (test with a piece of bread) slowly drop the onion rings into the batter.
When they are golden brown on the one side, turn once and when done, remove with a slotted spoon and place on some paper towelling.
Serve immediately with the blue cheese dip.
