  • 1-2 onions large
  • 1 quart of olive or other cooking oil
  • 1 ¼ cup flour preferably all-purpose
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 cup milk whole or low-fat
  • Breadcrumbs as needed optional


  • Slice the ends off the onions and separate into thick layers.
  • While you prep your onion rings, heat oil in deep skillet or pot. When oil starts to ripple or bubble, it is ready for frying.
  • Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Take individual onion rings and add the flour mixture, coating well. Place the powdered onion rings on a clean baking sheet.
  • Slowly stir in the egg and milk into the flour mixture. Whisk to form a batter. Take the floured onion rings and dip them in the batter until coated. Set aside on a rack.
  • Pour breadcrumbs on an open dish or plate. Roll the batter-coated onion rings in the breadcrumbs. Shake off any excess crumbs and drop onion rings into hot oil to fry. Cook until golden brown, season with a dash of salt and serve.
