Gluten Free Onion Rings


These are tasty and make a great side to just about anything. Onion rings are everywhere down here in Florida. You can smell them cooking from about a block away. Now I can make them at home, and I like them even better. For bonus points; so dose my husband.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup corn startch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/3 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 large sweet onion peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil for frying
  1. Combine egg and milk in a bowl
  2. Combine Cornstarch and spices in another bowl
  3. Dip the onion into the milk mixture and then coat it liberally with the flour mixture. Once you're sure the onion is well-coated, dip it back into the wet mixture and into the dry coating again. This double-dipping ensures you have a well-coated onion because some of the coating will wash off when you fry the onion.
  4. Heat oil in a deep fryer or deep pot to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Make sure you use enough oil to completely cover the onion rings  when they fry.
  5. fry until lightly browned. Be careful not over cook. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towels.

Spicy Dipping Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons cream-style horseradish sauce
  • 1/3 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1/3 teaspoon cayenne pepper

This is also a great appetizer for when you have your next get together.

Make sure all your ingredients are gluten free and enjoy!
