“ Brand: Asda / Type: Onion „
I would always choose Chips over any other side such as Wedges and that, but some Onion Rings are nice once in a while. I only make about 7-8 each time I have some, and as a result there is often an opened bag in my freezer.
These are from Asda and cost 98p for the bag, which is 750g.
The bag is a a plastic bag which is easy enough to open, just make a hole in the top of the bag or cut along the top. The bag looks alright. It is a gray colout and has a picture of a nice looking pile of Onion Rings on the front.
You can oven cook these, which is what I tend to do with making such a small amount. They taste about 10 minutes and come out nice and crisp and not that greasy, or you can deep fry these which only takes a couple of minutes.
These aren't that thin either, and a good size and thickness. The Batter is a decent coating, which is crisp but also a little bit crumb-y as wall. the Diced Onions in the middle are sweet, tangy and not too strong. There is a good amount of Onion in these as well so you get a nice tasty Onion Ring.
On the back of the bag it states per 4 Onion Rings these have 120 calories and 5.2g of fat.
I think most Onion Rings tend to taste the same. They are probably the same item, but in different Supermarket packaging.
I think I prefer Battered Onion Rings to Breaded ones, as I think you get the taste of the Onions better, and they normally end up Crispier.
A nice alternative to Chips and a good side to a meal. All the better if you dip them into Mayo, as that finishes them off.
On a Saturday when my Step-Dad cooks the family meal (that is his job lol) he always does a steak dinner and we always have onion rings, which I personally love. The other week we had these one's and I thought I'd review them lol!
White and grey coloured plastic bag with a photograph of the onion rings on the front of it. I'm told they are Asda Battered Onion Rings and that they are suitable for Vegetarians and the best before date is stamped on and I'm told to keep them frozen. On the back of the bag ingredients and allergy advice is listed (these do contain gluten and wheat and they may contain traces of nuts/seeds), I'm told how to cook them (in the oven for 10-15 minutes or they can be deep fried for 2-3 minutes), storage information is given, the size is stated (750g) and contact details for Asda are given. Nice enough bag but pain if you want to reseal them as there isn't a function to do this with.
The Onion Rings:
My Stepfather usually deep fries these for speed and fried they go more crispy than in the oven. We did have these cooked in the oven but they went a bit limp really so he goes with the frying option as we all prefer it.
So in the bag you get about 40 round, pale beige coloured rings. They cook in the fryer in record timing and all your have to do is give them a really good shake and voila they are ready to be eaten in less than 5 minutes from frozen.
So what you get is a ring of onion inside and that is of course coated in batter. Now these don't go fluffy as such but more crispy. The batter isn't all that light and you get a good amount of it per ring and what there is of it is nicely seasoned and they always go a really nice brown and golden colour.
These are great for dipping and serving with a meal and I like their crispiness and the way you can taste the onion really well but can also taste the batter too. These are a very nice accompaniment to any meal and a great price and we really do approve of these!
