  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 chose to bake these instead of frying. I did drizzle a bit of olive oil onto the dish so they would get crispy and they turned out wonderful! I also added some tyme, basil and rosemary into th...

These are the best. I read in a recent cooking publication to slide a skewer through the onion rings and hang them across a bowl to drip. It works perfectly. I lay a wire cooling rack across ...

These onion rings turned out perfect. I used many of the tips that I found in these reviews. I used a gallon ziploc to shake the onion slices with the flour mixture. Next, I set wire racks ov...
