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.  It's all about the light and crunchy seasoned coating- this is accomplished using panko bread crumbs. 
  2. Nice thick slices of sweet white onion- we find Walla Walla or Vidalia Onions perfect for this.
  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 learning how to make Homemade Onion Rings! 

Here's how to make fried Onion Rings from scratch:


Preheat oven to 250 degrees and slice 2-3 large Onions about 3/4"-1" thick.


In a large bowl combine:
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Granulated Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper

In another bowl whisk together 3 whole Eggs and 1/3 cup Water.


In a 3rd large bowl combine:
  • 2 cups Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika


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.


Dip into the seasoned panko bread crumbs and cover all sides.


Using a frying thermometer attached to the side of a heavy duty skillet add 1 1/2" Vegetable Oil or favorite high heat cooking oil. 

Heat to 350 degrees. 

Add a single layer of onion rings and turn once golden golden brown.


Once both sides are golden brown. Place onion rings on a paper towel lined baking sheet and keep warm in a 250 degree oven.

 Repeat with remaining onion rings until done.
