    WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!…The second dipping is NOT another bowl of ice water…It is ice cream mix. You can buy it in half gallon cartons from Dairy Fresh®. You can also used melted vanilla ice cream. AND…the second coating is NOT cornmeal…it is cracker meal You can buy it at most grocery stores on the baking aisle. For best results: layer the coated onions rings on a baking sheet that has been covered with wax paper…then freeze for a couple hours or overnight before cooking…Cook from frozen state.

      They use a wet mix and then a dry mix. Then they put them on a plastic tray and leave them in the cooler over night. They dont freeze them.they just let them dry up a little. I know the second dry mix has powdered milk.

    added a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder. That made a big difference from the first batch.

    There has to be something more, I can taste something akin to ‘allspice’ , con’t thing flour and corn meal are the ticket. Not like any Sonic Oncion Rings I’ve ever had!

      Out of the three places I worked at during college, we never added anything similar to allspice. It was pretty much salt and pepper were the only spices at the two fast food places, and the one place where I did short order cooking.
