- 1 large onion cut into ¼" slices
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt (or seasoning salt)
- ½ tsp. pepper
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- ¾ cup breadcrumbs (such as panko)
- Oil for deep frying
- Slice and separate the onions into rings. Set aside. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper.
- Heat approx. 1" of oil in a skillet (or deep fryer) to 350 degrees.
- While the oil heats, dip the onion rings into the flour mixture until all are coated and then set aside.
- Whisk the egg and milk into the same flour mixture.
- Dip the flour coated onion rings into the wet mixture and place on a rack over foil or baking pan until they stop dripping.
- Place rings into the bread crumbs and coat well on both sides. Tap off excess coating.
- Fry the rings a few at a time because they cook very fast. I turn them to brown both sides when using the skillet method. Remove to paper towels to drain.
