Guinness Battered Onion Rings

I have a deep fryer, but if you don't have one you can fry these in a large pot.
Yield:  What will seem like a lot until you start eating and finish them all yourself.  Or, 2-4 servings

2 large yellow onions, peeled and sliced 1/4" to 1/2" thick
1 package onion ring coating mix
1 14.9 ounce can of Guinness
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 eggs
Vegetable oil for frying
Sea salt, as desired
Slice and peel onions and separate slices into rings.  Whisk 2 cups of the onion ring coating mix with the beer and egg until smooth.  In a separate bowl, mix the cornmeal with the remaining coating mix.

Preheat oil in a deep fryer or pot.

Dip the onion rings in the beer batter, then in the coating mix, then drop into hot oil.  Cook for 3-4 minutes or until lightly brown, then lay on paper towels to drain.  Repeat in batches until finished.

Sprinkle with salt and serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
