Homemade Onion Rings

A while ago I shared the Bang Bang Shrimp recipe and y'all loved it! I had so many comments about how people were going to make the recipe and that made me so excited! I wanted to share another recipe with you that is perfect for the 4th and the summer BBQ season! My Mom LOVES onion rings and when she found me a recipe, I jumped at the chance to make them. I decided to make them for the first time, a few weeks ago, and while they were good, there is definitely some room for improvement! I made sure to document every part of the process for you, so you have all of the information you need to make some delicious homemade onion rings!


  • Onion - 1 Large

  • Flour - 1 3/4 Cups

  • Baking Powder - 1 tsp.

  • Salt - 1 tsp.

  • Egg - 1 egg

  • Milk - 1 cup

  • Dry Breadcrumbs - 3/4 cup

  • Seasoning Salt - to taste

  • Oil


  1. Add oil to a deep-fryer and heat it to about 365 ° F.

  2. Split onion pieces into rings and set them aside.

  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt on a separate bowl.

  4. Dip onion rings into the flour mixture and set aside.

  5. Add egg and milk to the flour mixture and whisk with a fork.

  6. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat well and place them on a wire rack to drain. Leave until the batter stops dripping. To clean up easier, place the wire rack over aluminum foil.

  7. Place the dry breadcrumbs on a plate or a shallow dish and spread them evenly.

  8. Place the rings in the crumbs, one at a time, and scoop the crumbs over the rings to coat them well. Make sure the coating clings well, too.

  9. Deep fry the rings for 2 to 3 minutes (several at a time) or until they’re golden brown.

  10. Place the onion rings on paper towels to drain, season with salt, and serve.

When I made them, I did not use an actual fryer. I just put the oil in a pan and made sure it was hot before frying the onion rings. It may seems like there are a lot of steps to go through, but they all go really quickly! Now, I mentioned above that there are things I would do differently and the first one would be is I would give the onions rings my full attention. The first part of the onion rings were great, but as I started cooking the rest of dinner, they started to get darker in color. The second thing I would do different is cut my onions thicker. Some of the onions were so thin that they fell apart during frying.

They turned out delicious and I would've loved some of the blooming onion dip from Outback to dip them in! If you aren't a person who likes to fry food in oil, this recipe would be really easy to make in the air fryer! Like the last recipe, if you decide to make these, tag me! I would love to see them!
