  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking oil (for frying)


  1. In a bowl, combine the grated cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, all-purpose flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well to ensure the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until well combined.
  3. Dip each thinly sliced onion ring into the beaten eggs, ensuring it is fully coated.
  4. Coat the egg-dipped onion ring in the cheese and breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the mixture to the onion.
  5. Heat cooking oil in a deep fryer or large skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. Carefully place the coated onion rings into the hot oil, frying in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
  7. Fry the onion rings for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
  8. Once cooked, remove the onion rings from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  9. Serve the Cheesy Onion Crisps hot, garnished with additional grated cheese or your favorite dipping sauce.
