Jun22 Fun Holiday – Onion Ring Day

Celebrate the delicious deep fried snack on June 22, Onion Ring Day.

Onion rings are a popular appetizer or snack.


Commonly found on most bar menus in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia, onion rings are made by breading and deep frying rings of onions. Onion rings are usually served with ketchup or some other form of dip or sauce.

Found Around the World

Some food historians believe that this snack was first created sometime in the 1930s in the United States, though versions of the dish can be found in many other parts of the world. In India for example, strips of onions are battered and fried and then served as a roadside snack.

A blooming onion is a whole onion that is cut in a shape of a flower and then battered and deep fried. This version of a fried onion was first served in the late 1980s in a chain restaurant in the United States.

How to Celebrate?

  • Have onion rings for all your meals. Make it more interesting by creating different dipping sauces for each meal.
  • Health conscious? What about baking onion rings instead of deep-frying them?
