So I’ve told you all about my love of greasy bar food before and I am here to show you one way to bring those flavors to your own house that is easier than you might think. I love onion rings and it may come as a surprise that ALL of my kids love them too. None of them will eat regular onions, but the minute they see those crispy, golden brown rings they are all in. Luckily I have figured out a way to get that super crunchy outside and tender inside at home, and it’s pretty simple too! In fact I whipped these ones up on a whim in about 15 minutes (during half time in fact) so when I say they are easy, know that I mean it!
The first thing you’ll need to do is gather up all your ingredients. The list is short and sweet and you probably already have everything you need in your kitchen already.
Home Made Onion Rings
- 1 onion, sliced into rings about 1/2″ thick
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Vegetable oil.
Start by heating your oil in a pan on the stove, I use a medium-high heat, but you know your stove better than I do (isn’t it funny how they all vary so much) so you’ll want to get it hot, but not so hot your oil smokes. Take your onion rings and dip them one at a time into your beaten eggs. Then dip them into your flour. Make sure they are covered, shake off the excess and let them rest on your cutting board. Once you are all done dipping them in flour go back to the first one you dipped and dip it into your beaten eggs again, then dip them into the breadcrumbs. One at a time go back through and repeat this for each ring. By now your oil should be good and ready and you can place 2 or 3 at a time into the hot oil. They only take a couple of minutes (or less) to get to that perfect golden brown place so watch them carefully. Once they are brown on one side use your tongs to flip them over and crisp up the other side. This side takes about half the time of the first side so watch carefully. Remove from the oil and place on a paper towel to drain the excess oil off. Repeat this process until all of your onion rings are cooked.
Serve them up for your next game day celebration, as a yummy side dish for burgers or just because!
