Onion Rings

Onion Rings
Colt's pretty much the Onion Ring connoisseur around our house. Whenever we go out to eat if Onion Rings are on the menu he's ordering them. So I know when he says these are the best, he knows what he's talking about.

He built his case as follows:

  1. 1. It's all about the light and crunchy seasoned coating- this is accomplished using panko bread crumbs. 
  2. 2. Nice thick slices of sweet white onion- we find Walla Walla or Vidalia Onions perfect for this.
  3. 3. Not overly greasy in a heavy soggy shell - two huge pet peeves when ordering Onion Rings. 
I have to agree with him on all these points. There's really only 1 other place in our area that even come close to these little mouthfuls of heaven, making it well worth the effort to make Homemade Onion Rings! 

Ready for the recipe?

Toss onion rings into seasoned flour mixture.

Then dip into egg mixture, back into the flour mixture, then back into the egg. This makes a nice sticky coating for the panko to adhere to.
