Onion Rings


  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning of choice such as Tony Chacheres Creole seasoning (optional)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk, or as needed
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs or cracker crumbs
  • seasoned salt to taste
  • 1 quart oil for frying, or as needed

  1. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 365 F
  2. Seperate the onion slices into rings and set aside. In a small bowl stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside. Whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat, then place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping. The wire rack should be placed over a sheet of aluminum foil for easier clean up.
  4. Spread the bread crumbs out on a plate or shallow dish. Place rings one at a time into the crumbs and scoop the crumbs up over the ring to coat. Give it a hard tap as you remove it from the crumbs. The coating should cling to the onion ring. Repeat with remaining rings.
  5. Deep fry the rings a few at a time for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain.. Season with seasoning salt and serve.
Review: Simply put - the best! Paul made these, so I'm not sure how much work they are - they didn't take him too long to make though, so it can't be that bad :)
These taste incredible! If you make extra then you can freeze them and reheat for another time.
