Crunchy Onion RingsFeb 02 2011 by
My favorite fast food restaurant used to be Burger King, not because I liked their burgers but because I LOVE onion rings and McDonalds didn’t serve them. It’s been a very long time since I’ve had fast food but not so long since I’ve had onion rings. Thanks to this super easy and simple recipe you can enjoy them as often as you like!
- 2 yellow or sweet onions, peeled
- heaping 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup cold milk (I used oat milk)
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup Homemade Breadcrumbs
- olive oil spray (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Line a baking sheet with non stick foil.
- Slice the onions width wise and then break them apart into rings. (Make them as thick or as thin as you would like. I cut mine about 1/2 inch thick.)
- In one bowl mix together the flour, milk and vinegar. In a separate bowl add the breadcrumbs (make sure this bowl is wide enough for you to dip your onion rings in).
- Next dip each onion into the wet flour mixture, and then into breadcrumbs. Make sure your onion ring is evenly coated and then place the baking sheet.
- Lightly spray your onion rings with olive oil (optional).
- Bake for 8 minutes, flip your rings over and then bake for an additional 6 minutes or until crispy.
Makes 4 servings.

After a few hours the onion rings will start to lose their crispiness. Simply place the rings back in the oven for a few minutes until they are crispy again.
