Southern-style Onion Rings


  • Servings: 8
  • 3 large vidalia onions, cut into 1/4-inch slices, and separated into rings
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1 quart oil for deep frying


    Preparation Time: 20 mins Cook Time: 20 mins Ready Time: 40 mins

  • line 2 baking sheets with waxed paper; set aside. line 2 additional baking sheets or 1 tray with paper towels; set aside.
  • place 1 1/2 cups of flour in a shallow bowl. pour the milk into a second shallow bowl. in a third bowl, stir together the cornmeal, 2 cups flour, sugar, salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, thyme, and black pepper.
  • dip the onion rings first into the plain flour, then into the milk, and last into the cornmeal mixture. place the breaded rings on the wax paper-lined baking sheets.
  • heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, or deep-fryer to 365 degrees f (185 degrees c).
  • fry the onion rings a few at a time in the hot oil so they are not crowded, until golden brown. drain on paper towel-lined baking sheets, and serve immediately.
