I am much more interested in thin, crisp onion rings than in the thicker, doughier kind. These are right at home alongside a burger, steak or sandwich but also make a lovely appetizer with the dip of your choice.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour Pantry
  • 1 tsp salt, plus more for sprinkling Pantry
  • 1 tsp freshly cracked pepper Pantry
  • 1 egg $1.50 for 6
  • 1 red onion, sliced in 1/4"-thick rings $0.50
  • 1 cup bread crumbs $1.50 for 12 oz.
  • vegetable oil, for frying Pantry

Recipe Serves 3-4

Directions

  1. Combine flour, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Beat egg with 1/4 cup cool water until foamy.
  3. Set up a bowl or plate containing the flour, a bowl containing the egg wash and a bowl or plate containing the bread crumbs in an assembly line.
  4. Dredge the onion rings first in the flour, then immediately in the egg and directly into the breadcrumbs, lightly shaking off excess with each step.
  5. Heat about 1 1/2" of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion rings in the oil, working in batches, for 1-2 minutes or until brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels.
  6. Serve immediately.
