Onion Rings


These are so yum.
And easy ... I think. I haven't actually made them.
Jono (8) does most of it ...

Rory found this recipe and we've modified it, like this ...

1 large onion, cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 & 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk, or as needed
3/4 cup homemade bread crumbs ... just throw whole wheat bread (we use the ends mostly) into your food processor ... whizz til crumbed. I save the bread ends in the freezer and throw them into the food processor frozen ! Too easy !
salt to taste
oil for frying, or as needed


Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).

Separate the onion slices into rings, and set aside. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt.

Coat onion slices with flour mixture & set aside. Whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork. Coat floured rings with this batter.

Spread the bread crumbs out on a plate and coat onion slices with them.

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 salt, and serve.

Delicious !

We ran out of bread crumbs and were too lazy to make more so we tried some with just the batter ... they were fantastic as well. Like big clumps of battered onion ... sort of like the bloomin' onion at Outback Steakhouse !
