- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup dry bread crumbs

- 1 quart oil, for frying, as needed
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 18mins
Heat oil in a deep fryer for 367 degrees.
Separate onion slices into rings, and set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside.
Whisk eggs and milk into the flour mixture using a fork.
Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat, then place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping. The wire rack may be placed over a sheet of foil for easier clean up.
Spread bread crumbs out on a plate or shallow dish. Place rings one at a time into the crumbs, and scoop crumbs up on the ring to coat Give it a hard tap as you remove it from the crumbs. The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings.
Deep fry the rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain. Season with seasoning salt and serve.
