READY IN: 18mins




  • Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F.
  • Separate the onion slices into rings, and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • 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 fings 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 rings to coat.
  • The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings.
  • Deep fry the rings a few at time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Remove to paper towels to drain. Seasoning with season salt, and serve.
