Vidalia Onion Rings

Ingredients: 
  • 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
Instructions: 
  1. Slice and separate the onions into rings. Set aside. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper.
  2. Heat approx. 1" of oil in a skillet (or deep fryer) to 350 degrees.
  3. While the oil heats, dip the onion rings into the flour mixture until all are coated and then set aside.
  4. Whisk the egg and milk into the same flour mixture.
  5. Dip the flour coated onion rings into the wet mixture and place on a rack over foil or baking pan until they stop dripping.
  6. Place rings into the bread crumbs and coat well on both sides. Tap off excess coating.
  7. 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.
