Learn how to make homemade breaded onion rings! Similar to what you'd find in a restaurant...okay, so they're better than restaurant onion rings but not your typical homemade rings! These take a bit of time but they are so worth it!
- 1 medium onion
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 1/2 tbsp flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 cup plain breadcrumbs
- oil for frying
- Slice your onion into 1/2" to 3/4" slices perpendicular to the roots and top. Carefully separate the rings and set the centers (small rings and bits) aside for another recipe and use. Be sure to remove the outer paper layer as well.
- Prepare the batter by mixing the egg, milk, 1 1/2 tbsp flour and salt with a whisk in a medium bowl until smooth. Put the 1/2 cup flour into another bowl or onto a plate and the breadcrumbs into yet another bowl or plate.
- To bread the rings, dip the rings into the batter and let the excess drip off and then place into the flour. Coat thoroughly with flour and shake off excess and return to batter. Again, coat with batter and then remove and let excess drip off and coat with breadcrumbs. Be sure to get the inside of the rings as well. Shake off excess breadcrumbs and dip again into the batter and then add another coat of breadcrumbs. Set onto a wire rack to dry for 20-30 minutes before frying.
- To fry, heat oil in a heavy pan over medium high heat to 350*F. Be sure to use a thermometer to get to the proper temperature. Fry the onion rings in batches and when golden brown, remove to a paper towel to drain completely. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy! Makes about 20 onion rings.
