Onion Rings

Katerina | Diethood
Dipped in a perfectly seasoned batter, these Homemade Onion Rings are incredibly tasty, super crunchy, and we can't get enough of them!
Servings : 6
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 2 cups canola oil, or vegetable oil
  • 2 large yellow onions , sliced into 1/2-inch slices and separated into rings
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, (I've used Gluten Free Flour and that works great, too!)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 cup milk


  • Line a plate with paper towels and set aside.
  • Heat canola oil in a large frying pan or saucepan.
  • In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt, pepper and Old Bay Seasoning; whisk to combine.
  • Place milk in a small bowl.
  • Start by dipping Onion Rings in flour-mixture then in milk, and back into flour-mixture.
  • Carefully drop several onion rings at a time in hot oil. DO NOT crowd the pan. Cook the rings in batches.
  • Cook for 3 minutes; flip and continue to cook for 1 more minute, or until golden brown.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove Onion Rings from oil and transfer to the paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  • Serve with Ketchup, Ranch Dressing, Honey Mustard, or any other favorite condiment.


  • Nutritional Information was calculated without the entire 2 cups of oil. Oil was measured before and after cooking, and there was about 1/4 cup oil on the onion rings after cooking. Most of the oil stayed behind, in the pan.
