Deep Fried Onions Rings are delicious with just about anything! You could replace the bread crumbs with Panko coating if you like. Maybe double the recipe, I am sure everyone will want seconds of these yummy 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 cup milk, or as needed
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
seasoned salt to taste
1 quart oil for frying, or as needed
Step 1: Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees.
Step 2: Separate the onion slices into rings, and set aside.
Step 3: In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Step 4: Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside.
Step 5: Whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork.
Step 6: 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 may be placed over a sheet of aluminum foil for easier clean up.
Step 7: Spread the bread crumbs out on a plate or shallow dish.
Step 8: 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 very well.
Step 9: Repeat with remaining rings.Step 10: Deep fry the rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown.
Step 11: Remove to paper towels to drain. Season with seasoning salt, and serve.
