Best Answer

Several people claimed to have invented the onion ring. The earliest recipe for the dish appeared in "The Art of Cookery Made Easy and Refined," an 1802 cookbook by John Molland. However, onion rings didn't become popular until the early 1920s, thanks in part to the spread of Kirby's Pig Stand, a chain of restaurants originally based in Oak Cliff, Texas. Kirby's Pig Stand claimed to have invented both the onion ring and Texas Toast. In any case, onion rings were popular enough by the early 1930s that Crisco promoted the dish in advertisements.
