These are delicious! I discovered I didn't have "plain" bread crumbs, just dried italian, so I used panko. I think they'd be better with regular dried bread crumbs, but they were super good as I made them. Made for Best of 2012 Tag game. Thanks for sharing!

  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.
