We love onion rings even though we don't have them that often. Not that we count calories or anything :)
Everyone has memories of the place that served THE absolute best onion rings and while this recipe will never replace your FAVORITE place, we think you'll like the delicate flavor these rings provide.
Stumbled upon this recipe some time back and thought maybe one of you might want to give them a try. Like I said, they may not beat the ones you loved while growing up but they're pretty darn good :)
Old Fashioned Onion Rings
- 1 large sweet onion, cut into 1/4 inch slices
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk, or as needed
- 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
- Seasoned Salt to taste
- 1 quart oil for frying
1. Heat the oil to 365 degrees F. (Medium High)
2. Separate the onion slices into rings; set aside.
3. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt.
4. Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture, coating well; set aside.
5. Whisk the egg and milk together, add the flour; mix well using a fork.
6. Dip the floured rings into the batter, place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping. (Place the wire rack over a sheet of aluminum foil or cookie sheet for easier clean up.)
7. Spread the breadcrumbs out on a plate or shallow dish.
8. Place rings one at a time into the crumbs; coat well. The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings.
9.Fry the rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain.
10.Season with seasoning salt, and serve.
