How to Make Old Fashioned Fried Onion Rings

  2. Seperate the onion slices into rings, and set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside. On another paper plate put the seasoned bread crumbs on it, set aside.
  4. Whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat, then let drip a little.
  5. Transfer a few at a time to the seasoned bread crumbs, and coat the rings best you can with the bread crumbs.
  6. Fry a few at a time for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain, salt if you wish.
