Easy Homemade Cheesy Onion Rings
1 large white onion
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups Progresso™ panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Oil, for frying
Heat 3 inches of oil over medium high heat to 375ºF.
While the oil is heating, cut the root and tip off the onion and discard. Slice the onion into 1/4 inch thick slices and separate the rings.
Add the flour and salt to a shallow dish and coat each onion ring in the flour. Shake off and set aside.
Once all the onions are coated in flour, beat together the milk and egg and stir into the flour. Whisk until smooth.
Coat the onions in the batter and shake excess off before placing on a cooling rack set over a baking sheet.
Mix together the panko and Parmesan cheese and coat each onion ring in the breadcrumb mixture. Return to the cooling rack.
Drop the onion rings, 3 or 4 at a time depending on the size of your pot, into the oil and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove the onion rings from the oil to a paper towel-lined dish for the grease to drain. Repeat with the remaining onion rings until all are cooked.
