. Oven baked Onion Rings .
I really must stop surfing Food Network. It always always makes me hungry. With a craving for onion rings late last night, I sliced up a couple of onions and tried out this oven baked recipe. And it was amazing! Without having to deep fry or use a single drop of oil, the onion rings still came out crispy on the outside and rich and tender on the inside. A great supper snack without the guilt.
You will need:
- Two large onions (sliced into rings)
- Breadcrumbs (I used a mix of crushed Ritz crackers and corn flakes seasoned with garlic salt)
- 1 cup of buttermilk
- 1 egg (lightly beaten)
- 2 tablespoon of flour
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 220 C. Soak onion rings in buttermilk for at least 15 minutes or best for a few hours.
Set up a coating station of (1) flour (2) egg (3) breadcrumbs. Dip coated onion rings into flour, shake off excess and dip in egg followed by breadcrumbs.
Place on cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
** The breadcrumbs become clumpy easily, which then makes it difficult to coat the onion rings. Suggest to spoon breadcrumbs into the coating dish for only 1-2 onions rings at a time. Clean out and refill with fresh breadcrumbs after every 1-2 rings.
** Don’t skip the flour. It makes it harder for the onion rings to be coated with the breadcrumbs if you don’t coat it with flour first.
