DIY a basket of onion rings the next time you're craving a snack.
Sometimes, as I’m sitting in a restaurant with my husband, I regret all of my life decisions.
Namely, marrying a man who hates onions.
I just want to order onion rings for an appetizer and share them with someone. I don’t want to eat them all myself and I don’t want to be the only one with onion breath in the relationship.
How do people dislike onion rings, anyway? They are deep-fried goodness!
So I make onion rings at home when the husband isn’t around. I bask in all the onion breath and eat myself silly. These thick-cut rings are super crunchy thanks to the Progresso panko breadcrumbs, and they have a nice salty flavor from the grated Parmesan.
We’re slicing our onions nice and thick for these guys.
Then we toss the onions in some flour, just to give the batter something to stick to.
After all the onions are tossed in the flour, make a quick batter by adding milk and egg to the dish of flour. So easy! Then you toss all the onions in!
Let the batter drip off the onions for a second while you prepare the crunchy coating.
You’ll just mix together some panko and some grated Parmesan. Yes, the powdery kind from the green can. Trust me.
Coat each onion the breadcrumbs. These are going to be crispy and crunchy to the max!
Fry the onions up and let them drain in a paper towel-lined dish.
I like to serve mine with ketchup or ranch dressing, but I have to admit that these are just about perfect on their own!
