3pm special: Notch beer-battered onion rings

By rolando October 25, 2011

I love onion rings. Last year we made these with Sam Adams beer that I traded for at the Sam Adams brewery in Jamaica Plain where we used to prep. All I had to do was bring them a large batch of onion rings in exchange for the beer.

We like to switch our 3pm special each week to keep things moving. Every so often we have a blockbuster 3pm special like the apple fritters or pumpkin fritters and we let them hang on for another week. We want to be careful not to keep the pumpkin fritters on the menu too long. We’ve already created some addicts.

Starting tomorrow, we’ll be serving beer-battered onion rings on the trucks. These will be using Notch beer from our beer on tap at Harvard Square.

Lucia edit: this is the team at MIT making them up for the first time. James used to be a short-order cook, that’s why he can crack an egg with one hand.
