Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

These make the best onion rings! try to use panko for this it will really make a difference to the texture, use large sweet onions preferably Bermuda --- you will love these! --- I use Jim's great panko breadcrumb recipe for these Homemade Panko Bread Crumbs

I loved how the batter stuck to these onion rings! We used panko crumbs for the bread crumbs and it gave them a good crunch. I soaked the onions in the egg/b.milk mixture for an hour. I put all of the dry ingredients in a gallon size ziploc bag, then I dropped some onions (1 batch at a time) in the bag and tossed it around. It was fast, easy and gave a great coating. Thanks for the recipe. My husband is always suggesting we make some onion rings and this was the recipe I glad I did!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil to about 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together buttermilk and eggs.
  3. In a bowl mix together the coating mixture, then place into a shallow dish (a shallow dish makes for easier coating of the rings).
  4. Dip/coat the onion rings into the buttermilk mixture.
  5. Then coat generously into the dry coating mixture.
  6. Fry briefly in hot oil (turning once) until onion rings are lightly brown on both sides.
  7. Delicious!
