These onion rings are perfectly crispy, delicious, and made in the oven! Dredge onions in a light batter and coat with panko bread crumbs before baking.

  • 2 large onions
  • 2 cups buttermilk divided

  1. Peel onions and slice into 1/2" thick rings. Place sliced onions in a large freezer bag with 1 cup of buttermilk and let sit at least 30 minutes turning occasionally.

  2. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  3. Mix buttermilk, eggs and 2 tablespoons of flour until smooth. Set aside.

  4. In a separate bowl, combine Panko Bread Crumbs, olive oil and seasonings.

  5. Remove onions from the ziploc bag and drain well. Place onions in a bag with 1/2 cup of flour and shake to coat.

  6. Separate the Panko mixture into 2 small bowls (this is important because the mixture gets damp and doesn't stick after a while). One by one, dip each onion into the egg mixture and then into the Panko mixture to coat.

  7. Place on a parchment lined pan. Bake 10 minutes, flip over and bake an additional 10-15 minutes until browned and crispy.

  8. Sprinkle with additional seasoning salt if desired and serve with ketchup!
