Restaurant Style Onion Rings

Logan's Roadhouse Copycat Recipe

Makes 3-4 servings

1 quart vegetable oil
1 large Vidalia onion, cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup dry bread crumbs
seasoned salt, to taste

Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or pot to 365 degrees.  Separate the onion slices into rings and set aside.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Dip the onion slices in the flour mixture until completely coated and set aside.  Whisk the eggs and milk into the flour mixture.  Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat and place on a wire rack to let excess batter drip off.  Pour the bread crumbs in a large bowl.  Gently toss battered onions into the bread crumbs and and coat evenly.

Deep fry a few rings at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown.  Place the finished onion rings on paper towels to drain.  Season with seasoning salt and serve.
