They turned out great. I began by coating a thin layer of mayonnaise before I started coating them with the other ingredients. You can't taste the mayo, and you won't lose the breadcrumbs during frying process.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F.
  2. Separate the onion slices into rings, and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside.
  5. Whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork.
  6. Dip the floured fings into the batter to coat, then place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping.
  7. The wire rack may be placed over a sheet of aluminum foil for easier clean up.
  8. Spread the bread crumbs out on a plate or shallow dish.
  9. Place rings one at a time into the crumbs, and scoop the crumbs up over the rings to coat.
  10. The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings.
