When I was little, I HATED onions. I wanted nothing to do with them… UNLESS it was onion rings. Don’t ask me why a deep fried onion was better than any other kind of onion. Oh wait, deep fried anything is always better :)
These onion rings are so easy to make and taste like you are eating at some expensive restaurant. My whole family enjoyed them and I know yours will too! The crispy outside is divine!
- 1 large onion, cut into ¼ inch slices
- 1¼ cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- ¾ cup panko bread crumbs
- 1 quart oil for frying
- salt for seasoning
- Heat oil to 350 degrees F.
- Separate the ¼ inch slices of onion into separate rings.
- In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Coat onion rings in the dry mixture completely and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine egg and milk and whisk until completely combined.
- Dip the flour-coated onion rings into egg-milk mixture and place on a wire rack to let excess egg-milk mixture drain.
- While onion rings drain, pour Panko bread crumbs into a shallow dish. Dip egg-milk coated onion rings into Panko bread crumbs until completely coated. Spoon crumbs over the top to cover as necessary.
- Place in hot oil and cook 1 to 1½ minutes on each side until it reaches a nice golden brown color. Flip them over to cook the other side.
- Place on a paper towel to let any excess oil drain off. Sprinkle each onion ring with a little salt.
