- Prepare your onions. Slice off the 2 ends of the onion. Remove the paper and outermost layer of the onion while keeping the onion whole. Slice into ½ inch rounds. Separate each ring.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together your whole milk and hot sauce. Add your sliced onion rings to the bowl.
Fill a large sauce pot with vegetable oil. Turn to high heat.
In a large mixing bowl add your flour. Season with salt and pepper. (Add enough salt and pepper that if you were to taste the flour you can actually taste the seasonings.)
To test to see if the oil is hot enough, sprinkle a little flour in the pot and if it starts cooking the oil is hot enough.
Remove, a handful at a time, some onions from the milk/ hot sauce mixture and toss in the flour. Remove any extra flour with your hands.
Place the onions in the hot oil. Let cook 4-5 minutes or until the onions are golden brown.
When the onions are ready, remove from the oil and let drain on paper towels.onion rings cooking tips
- It is very important to season your breading. The options are endless with what flavors you can use. Cayenne in the flour, fresh herbs infused in the milk. The end product will be delicious!
- I like to use vegetable oil, but any oil with a high smoke point will work. Soy bean, grape seed, peanut, and sunflower are all great options.
