Simple Homemade Onion Ring Recipe

I love onion rings. So. So. Much. I don't have a gallbladder, so I shouldn't be eating them, but I really can't help it. Even my husband and Tater (neither of whom will touch an onion in their pure form), inhale these puppies. Sometimes, I even bake them to make them "healthier". These only take about 20 minutes to make, so you could even make them on a weeknight!

Simple Onion Rings
serves 4
15 min prep, 3 min fry or 20 minute baking.
adapted from Allrecipes
  • 1 medium onion, cut and separated into rings
  • 1 1/4 C All purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C milk
  • 3/4 C dry bread crumbs
  • Seasoning Salt
  • Oil for frying (optional)
  • In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt
  • Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are coated; set aside. 
  • Mix the egg and milk into the leftover flour mixture using a fork. Scoop batter into a gallon baggie and place coated onion rings inside. Shake until well coated.
  • Place the bread crumbs into another gallon baggie, and put battered rings into bag. Shake until all rings are well coated.
  • Place battered and breaded rings into a deep pan with 1/2 inch of hot oil and cook about 1-2 minutes on each side until browned and crisp.
  • If you would prefer to bake, place rings on a wire rack and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, flipping once. 
  • Sprinkle with seasoning salt and serve!
