Onion Rings to Die For

INGREDIENTS:
1 large onion, cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk, or as needed
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
seasoned salt to taste
1 quart oil for frying, or as needed

DIRECTIONS:
Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
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 rings 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 ring to coat. Give it a hard tap as you remove it from the crumbs. The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings.
Deep fry the rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain. Season with seasoning salt, and serve.
THE RESULTS:
I wish everyone could have tasted these. If you have a little bit of time. MAKE THESE. They were just as good maybe even better then any restaurant onion rings. I was kind of confused for a little bit of what to do with the left over flour then finally after I read the recipe again it says mix the flour mixture with the egg and milk. Anyways, so good. These are way past 5 stars. We dipped them in ranch dressing. Oh and I don't have a deep fryer I just used any ol' pan and added some veg. oil to it. Sprinkle on a little seasoning salt and waaa la. Finger lickin' good.:)I got the recipe from allrecipes.com.

For the best results in the onion ring world you need an oil that can get really HOT-try rice bran oil-smoke point 490. And yes, who does not like a little fried food once in a while!!

Oh man! Me & my Husband love onion rings (the kids just waste them, by pulling out the onions and eating the batter, lol). Someday I'll have to make us a batch.
Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
