Best Onion Ring Recipe

I got this recipe a long time ago from a friend. I have no idea where she found it, but this is the best onion ring recipe that you can make from home. They are restaurant quality. Crunchy, a little sweet from the onion, and perfect. If you can get Vandalia onions they are in my opinion the best, but they are only in season a few weeks of the year.


What you will need:

  • Frying pan
  • A couple of mixing bowls
  • wire rack


Ingredients for the Best Onion Ring Recipe

  • 1 large onion
  • 1 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoon  of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup of milk ( I use whole milk. You can also use buttermilk-if you don’t have any you can make it get the directions here)
  • 1 cup of seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1-2 cups of oil for frying





These take a little work to make but I promise they are well worth it.

  • Slice onion into 1/2″ thick slices and separate the rings. Be careful not to break the rings.
  • Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Coat the onion rings with the dry mixture.
