Homemade Onion Rings

Homemade onion rings

I’ve been making these homemade onion rings for years and everyone loves them. They take just minutes to make and are so much better than frozen onion rings. The three step coating clings well and is super crispy.

I like to save the middle parts of the onion slices for dicing and using in other recipes, but you can coat and fry them too.

The biggest white onions you can find make the best onion rings.
