Copycat Tony Roma's Onion Loaf

6 white onions, sliced and separated into rings
1 cup milk
3 eggs, beaten
salt, to taste
2 cups pancake mix

Combine milk, eggs, and salt in a mixing bowl. Soak the onions in
this mixture for about 30 minutes. Place pancake mix in a shallow
bowl. Heat oil for frying in a heavy skillet to 375 degrees F.

Remove the onion rings from milk mixture, dip in pancake mix and
place in hot oil. Fry rings until golden brown. Transfer to a plate
lined with paper towels to drain.

Pack fried onion rings solidly, but loosely, without pressing too
hard, into an 8-by 4-inch loaf pan. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 to
15 minutes. Turn out onto serving plate.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

FAQ: Do you fill the loaf pan with the rest of the pancake
mix/milk mixture?

Answer: No, you do not add the rest of the mixture. You just press
the breaded/fried onion rings into the loaf pan gently. Then bake
it. But do not press the onions in the loaf pan too tightly, keep
them loosely packed.
