Wala! Onion Rings!

Wala! Onion Rings! One of our favorite ways to eat onions! This was my first time making onion rings, and they turned out AWSOME!!!

I found this recipe online, it had great reviews, and I had all of the ingredients in my pantry.


  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk, or as needed
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • seasoned salt to taste
  • 1 quart oil for frying, or as needed


  1. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
  2. Separate the onion slices into rings, and set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside. Whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat, then place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping. The wire rack may be placed over a sheet of aluminum foil for easier clean up. Spread the bread crumbs out on a plate or shallow dish. Place rings one at a time into the crumbs, and scoop the crumbs up over the ring to coat. Give it a hard tap as you remove it from the crumbs. The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings.
  4. Deep fry the rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain. Season with seasoning salt, and serve.

I don't think I would've bothered to make homemade onion rings if I hadn't felt the pressure to post something this week, but I'm sooooo glad I did. We had so much fun making AND eating our onion rings!


  1. Those onion rings look so good--and so do all of you!

  2. I love Onion rings too! They look so yummy! and it looks like everyone else enjoyed them. I remember when we lived in Arizona, mom made onion rings and there was a huge thunder and rain storm that night. She let us play in the rain in our pajamas and eat onion rings. Does anyone else remember that? Fun to see your post Val! and everybody apart of it!
