onion rings.

i'm not exactly sure what came over me last sunday that inspired me to make onion rings, but for whatever reason, i was set on it. after church, chase & i came home to make sweet potato & white bean burgers with thai sweet chili sauce and onion rings on top. of course we ate a dozen onion rings before our burgers were even ready, and we both felt extremely sick afterwards. but still, these were extremely delicious. 

onion rings
1 medium white onion
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups panko
olive oil & vegetable oil, for frying
salt & pepper, to taste

1. cut off the ends of the onion and peel off first layer. slice onion into rings and separate.
2. combine flour, baking powder and salt. dip the rings into the flour and set aside.
3. pour half vegetable oil & half olive oil into frying pan 1" deep. heat over medium heat until small bubbles start to form.
4. add egg and milk to flour mixture and combine. put panko onto a plate.
5. one at a time, dip the rings in the flour mixture, transfer to plate and cover in bread crumbs, then place in frying pan. fry one ring by itself first to make sure oil is the correct temperature-- the rings should turn golden on one side after 1-2 minutes. once one side is cooked, use tongs to flip them over and cook the other side. 
6. when finished, transfer to a wire rack or baking sheet lined with paper towels. salt & pepper to taste & serve immediately.
