Whenever my husband and I go out to eat, I am always sure to order onion rings. I would pick onion rings over fries any day of the week! We have been using our grill A LOT now that it has warmed up, and these onion rings make the perfect side dish to any of your grilled burgers or dishes! I never thought that we would be able to achieve restaurant quality onion rings at home, but we totally did. These. Were. Amazing.
Restaurant Style Onion Rings Recipe:
(Makes 3-4 servings)
1 quart vegetable oil
1 large vidalia onion, cut into 1/4″ slices
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 cup dry bread crumbs
Seasoned salt, to taste
Heat vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or pot to 365 degrees. Separate the onion slices into rings and set aside. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Dip the onion slices in the flour mixture until completely coated and set aside. Whisk the eggs and milk into the flour mixture. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat and place on a wire rack to let excess batter drip off. Pour the bread crumbs in a large bowl. Gently toss battered onions into the bread crumbs and and coat evenly. Deep fry a few rings at a time for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Place finished onion rings on paper towels to drain. Season with seasoning salt and serve.
