30 Min

The double breading on these onion rings makes them super crispy and delicious. You won't believe how fast our Crispy Crunchy Onion Rings disappear. They're great for munching on or serving alongside your favorite main dishes.

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices and separated into rings

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot over medium heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Whisk in buttermilk and egg. Place bread crumbs in a shallow dish.
  3. Dip onion rings into batter, then into bread crumbs, until evenly coated on all sides.
  4. Place coated onion rings in hot oil and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown, turning once. Remove to a paper towel-lined platter. Repeat with remaining onion slices. Serve immediately.


  • If desired, sprinkle with salt  before serving.
  • Serve these with your favorite dipping sauce. Here's our yummy recipe for Ranch Dressing!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I've been looking for an onion ring recipe that I can call my own. And this one is it! I like buttermilk in the batter and I love Panko bread crumbs! Winner winner chicken dinner! I have had trouble in the past with the batter falling off of the onion rings so I hope things turn out okay for me. If anybody has any tips I'd be interested to hear them. Thanks

Best rings I ever made. Loved the Panko crunch. Was a little thick added a little Half/Half I had on hand. Shared with friends the recipe. Jean of Kulpmont, Pa

is there something one can use other than cayenne pepper

You can either leave it out, or substitute it with onion powder if you'd like.

I didn't have cayenne pepper so used chili powder.
