Homemade onion rings are so easy to make.  I was visiting home from college the first time I remember making homemade onion rings.  I was covered in flour (and so was the kitchen).  I'm much neater now that I have to do the clean-up but the recipe has remained pretty much the same.  If you want a little spice, add a teaspoon or 2 of Tabasco. to the milk mixture.

  • 1 large Vidalia onion - cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 t cayenne pepper
  • 1 t fine sea salt
  • 1 t black pepper
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk - or as needed


  • Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F
  • Cut onions into 1/4 inch thick slices and separate into rings, and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and spices.
  • Coat onion slices with the flour mixture coating well; set aside.
  • Whisk the egg and milk.
  • Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat, then place on a wire rack on a foil-lined sheet pan, so the batter can setup.

Try using a red onion for onion rings is you are topping burgers or other sandwiches.
You can freeze these in a single layer on a sheet pan.  Then transfer to bags.
