Homemade Old-Fashioned Onion Rings

Wow, wow, WOW! These are amazingly good. When I saw the recipe and hundreds of rave reviews on Allrecipes, I knew instantly that I was going to try these. The taste is spot on and they are crunchy and salty -- perfect! I changed the technique from the original recipe as the bread crumb definitely adhered more evenly after I changed it. If you want to impress company, make these!

  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced into 1/4-inch rings
  • 1 1/4 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c milk
  • 3/4 c dry bread crumbs
  • Seasoned salt, to taste
  • 1 qt oil, for frying

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Dip onion slices into the flour mixture, until coated; set aside.
  • Whisk egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork.
  • Dip floured rings into the batter to coat. Allow excess to drip off of the onion rings for a moment.
  • Pour bread crumb into a shallow bowl. Coat the onion rings and set them aside. Remember to use one hand for handling the wet ingredients and one hand for handling the dry ingredients.

  • Preheat deep fryer for 365 degrees.
  • Deep fry the onion rings for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Season the onion rings with seasoned salt.
  • ENJOY!
