If you love homestyle onion rings you get at a diner, this recipe is a must try. Today, I’m going to show you how to make onion rings at home with my tips and trickes. Once you have had these amazing thick cut onion rings, nothing else will do.


  • 1 Onion sliced into 1/2 (thicken slices and divided into rings)
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • Vegetable Oil For Frying


  1. You will need 3 small bowls. Place flour in one bowl, eggs and milk in a second bowl (beat them together) and then the Panko crumbs in a third bowl.
  2. Coat the sliced onions in the flour, then in the egg mixture and then in the bread crumb mixture. Place on a separate plate until ready to air fry.
  3. Continue to do this until all of the onions have been coated.
  4. Add oil to a small saucepan. You’ll need about 2? of oil. Heat on medium heat until it has reached a temperature of 375 degrees F.
  5. Place the coated onions in the oil and fry on each side until the pickles are golden brown. I cooked mine for approximately 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Then transfer the fried onion rings to a plate lined with a paper towel. Allow them to cool (they will be hot). You can top them with salt to keep them crisp at this time.
  7. Then serve with your favorite dipping sauce.


Tips and tricks to make Crispy onion rings recipe

  • You can use a large onion to have nice big slices. I normally slice into 1/2″ thick slices.
  • If you do not care for the strong taste of onions and want to make them sweeter, soak them in ice water before making the onion rings.
  • Store Onion Rings: Keep onion rings in an air tight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Onion rings, will get soggy so you will have to crisp them up when you reheat them.
  • Separating the onion rings with paper towels helps to soak up any excess moisture.
  • To Reheat Onion Rings:The best way to reheat onion rings is in the oven. Place the onion rings on a parchment paper-lined baking tray. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until they are to your desired crispness.
  • The Best Onions for Onion Rings:You can use white or yellow onions. However, I believe yellow onions are the best for onion rings. Yellow onions are a milder flavor, but white onions seems to hold up better.
  • The best oil for frying: Vegetable or Canola oil is best for frying. Both of these have a high smoke point which is beneficial when frying at high heats. For example, you would not want to use an oil such as olive oil because it has a low smoke point and could cause the food to taste burnt and create a bunch of smoke while cooking.
