Yields20 Servings
Prep Time15 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time30 mins
 1 Onion
 1 cup of All Purpose Flour
 1 tbsp of Baking Powder
 1 tbsp of Smoked Paprika
 1 Egg
 ¾ cup of Milk
 1 tsp of ground pepper
 1 tsp of table salt
 Bread Crumbs to coat
 Canola Oil for frying
1

Start by cutting the onions into rings about ¼ of an inch thick, separating them from each other. This recipe works best with the big and medium sized rings.

2

The next step is to prepare the breading by combining the flour, the baking powder, the salt and the paprika. You can replace the paprika with chili powder, or omit it completely if you don’t have it on hand. Mix well and coat each onion ring with the mix before shaking to remove excess flour.

3

Next, in another bowl, we combine the milk, the pepper, and the egg and beat until well combined. Add the remaining flour mixture and stir until no lumps remain. Coat each onion ring in this mixture as well and then coat in breadcrumbs.

4

The final step is to fry in a fryer or in a pot with enough oil to cover the onion rings. I recommend adding about 3-4 onion rings at a time so that it is less likely that they burn. Once ready, pat dry with some paper towels to get rid of the excess oil.
