For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

We’ve used Panko Breadcrumbs in a few recipes now, so we thought why not use them for an onion ring recipe. They give a crispy coating, which is essential for a good onion ring, and they go a long way. I think the end result was pretty good.

Panko Breadcrumbs are a Japanese breadcrumb, and it’s a pretty big crumb compared to flour so you tend to get more coverage. 25g of Panko should be more than enough to coat a decent sized onion. They can be found in the international aisle, near to the asian ingredients, in most supermarkets, or you can pick them up on Amazon.
