I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Crunch AF Onion Rings
...in your mind.

Crunch AF Onion Rings

Forget the frozen ones from the supermarket, cuz these are insanely good and almost ‘glass shattering’ crispy. Make em once, and you’ll make em again…and again.


  • Oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Big pinch Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs


  1. Heat about an inch or 2 of oil to 350 in a skillet
  2. Peel onions and cut into 1/4 inch rings, then separate into individual rings
  3. Put flour, cornstarch, cayenne and salt and pepper into a large bowl, mix well to combine
  4. Add water, and using a whisk mix until smooth - set aside
  5. Put panko into another large bowl
  6. When ready to cook, dip onion rings into the wet batter, then into the panko and then carefully put into the oil - don’t overload the pan though or the oil temp will drop way too much
  7. Cook 2-3 minutes until golden brown, then remove to a cooling rack
  8. Keep going
