    Onion Rings

    Source of Recipe

    Mom's Kitchen

    List of Ingredients

    • 6 to 10 cups vegetable shortening (or vegetable oil)
    • 1 medium white onion
    • 2 cups milk
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 cups Progresso plain bread crumbs
    • Salt


    1. In a fryer, heat up 6 to 10 cups of vegetable shortening oil (use the amount required by your fryer) to 350 degrees.

    2. Cut the onion into 1/4-inch thick slices, then separate the slices into rings.

    3. Pour the milk into a large shallow bowl, dump flour into another large shallow bowl and pour bread crumbs into a third large shallow bowl. The large bowls will make breading easier. Easy is good.

    4. While the shortening is heating up, bread all the onion rings: First dip an onion ring into the milk, then into the flour. Dip it back into the milk, then into the bread crumbs; and once more into the milk and into the bread crumbs. This will give each of the rings a nice thick breading. Arrange the breaded rings on a plate until all of them are breaded.

    5. When the oil is hot, fry the rings, a handful at a time, in the oil for 1 1/2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove rings from the oil to a rack or paper towels to drain. Lightly salt the onion rings and serve them up hot.

    Final Comments

    Makes 4 to 5 dozen onion rings.
