  • Oil Thermometer


  • 2 onions sliced into rings
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs whisked
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Oil, for frying
  • Spicy Aioli, for dipping


  • Peel the onions and slice them crosswise into thin slices. Separate the slices to create rings. 
  • Combine the garlic powder, baking powder, 1 tsp salt, and flour. Mix until well combined. In a separate dish, whisk 3 eggs. 
  • In a separate dish, combine the panko bread crumbs, plain bread crumbs, and 1 tsp salt. Mix well. 
  • Heat about 4 inches of oil to 360 degrees F. Use a thermometer for best results. 
  • Coat each onion ring in the flour mixture, then dip them in the egg mixture, and then coat them in the bread crumb mixture. 
  • Fry the onion rings, about 5-6 at a time. Fry for 1 minute on each side then drain on paper towels. 


  • If you slice the onions thin like I did they will cook very quickly. If you prefer them thicker, they may take a couple of extra minutes to cook.
  • Make sure to pack on the bread crumbs!
