Homemade Onion Rings

Homemade Onion Rings TOTSI never attempted to make homemade onion rings at home. But after learning to fry foods in my cast iron skillet, I have been on a frying frenzy! 

These homemade onions rings are very simple to make, and you can season them up any which way you like. My boys like just a little seasoning salt on them – the husband, likes them spicy.

However you make them, these crunchy homemade onion rings will be a hit! 

Homemade Onion Rings

What you will need:

  • 2 large yellow onions (its all I had); cut into 1/2 slices
  • 1 cup all purpose flour; divided
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. pepper; divided
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp. Franks Hot Sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp. seasoning salt
  • oil for frying

Using a heavy bottom frying pan – like a Cast Iron skillet, head at least 2 cups of canola oil over medium heat.

Set up a dredging station – I used three bowls. 

Bowl #1 – add flour and 1 tsp pepper; set aside

Bowl #2 – Combine the other 1/2 cup of flour, buttermilk, egg, baking powder, paprika, salt and pepper and 2 – 3 Tbsp. of Franks Hot Sauce in a bowl and mix well.

Bowl #3 – add Panko breadcrumbs and seasoning salt.

Working in small batches, dredge the cut onion rings in the four, followed by a dip in the liquid batter and then into the Panko breadcrumbs. 

Place in hot oil and fry until both sides are golden brown – about 3 minutes.

Drain off oil on and continue until all the onions are done.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
