Lasagna-stuffed onion rings: You have to see this monster food mashup

Onion rings are great on their own, something I’ll pay an extra buck or two for to upgrade from fries at lunch.

But mad food scientist and Instagram hero Tym Bussanich has come up with something way more exciting than plain onion rings. Lasagna-stuffed onion rings, people. Welcome to 2016.

French fries have got nothing on this.
