 Onion Rings Recipes

Onion rings are a type of deep-fried snack or side dish made from sliced onions that have been coated in batter or bread crumbs and then deep-fried until crispy and golden brown. The rings are often served as a side dish with burgers, sandwiches, or other fast food items, and can also be found as a standalone appetizer in restaurants or bars. Onion rings can be seasoned with a variety of spices or seasonings, and can be made with different types of onions, such as white or yellow onions.

Here is a basic recipe for making onion rings:


  • 2 large onions
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Slice the onions into thick rings and separate them.
  2. In a shallow dish, mix together the flour, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.
  3. In another shallow dish, whisk together the buttermilk and egg.
  4. In a third shallow dish, place the bread crumbs.
  5. Dip each onion ring into the flour mixture, then the buttermilk mixture, and finally the bread crumbs, making sure to coat each ring thoroughly.
  6. Place the coated onion rings on a baking sheet and let them sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the coating to set.
  7. In a deep frying pan or pot, heat enough vegetable oil to fully submerge the onion rings to 375°F (190°C).
  8. Fry the onion rings in small batches for 2-3 minutes or until they are golden brown, flipping them once to ensure they are evenly cooked.
  9. Use a slotted spoon to remove the onion rings from the oil and transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  10. Serve the onion rings immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.
