|Baked Beer Battered Buffalo Onion Rings with Buffalo Dipping Sauce|
Suffice it to say, football ruled all Sunday happenings.
From the time I asked, "Daddy, what color are the outfits of the team you like?" all the way through college, where Sunday after Sunday, I was the girl that maintained a firm spot on the beat-up couch with my guy friends, and up until now, where I still spend my Sundays cheering on the Pats, football has been a big part of my life and I like that. Yelling at the TV (just like my Dad taught me), I love to spend my Sundays curled up on the couch, watching the game. And of course, along with the game, comes game day food and today, with it being the Pat's opener, some classic sports watching food was certainly in order.

|Aren't beer and buffalo sauce the perfect combo?|
Baked Beer Battered Buffalo Onion Rings With Buffalo Dipping Sauce
For the onion rings:
- 1 -2 onions, peeled and sliced thin
- 2 eggs
- About 1 tbs of buffalo sauce (I used Archie's Moore's Original)
- About 1 cup flour
- About 1 cup breadcrumbs
- About 1/4 c. light beer (I used Miller Lite)
For the dipping sauce:
- About 1 cup sour cream (I used fat free)
- About 1/4 cup buffalo sauce
- Sliced chives or green onions (optional)
Start by mixing the two eggs, 1 tbs of buffalo sauce and the beer into a large bowl. In separate shallow bowls, place the flour in one and the breadcrumbs in the other. Dredge the onion rings through the beer batter and then into the flour. Return the onion rings to the beer batter and then dredge them through the breadcrumbs. Lay onto a large baking pan and bake at 400 degrees until the edges crisp up.
While the onions are baking, combine the sour cream with the buffalo sauce. Top with the green onions and serve alongside the hot onion rings. For best results, enjoy with a frosty beer and the Patriots on TV.
