I love onion rings, but I hate deep frying anything. These don't taste the same as the deep fried variety, but they are crispy & flavorful and a nice alternative. Adapted from Taste of Home. Servings will vary greatly depending upon your onions - approx 4 rings per serving. Please use very large onions and they should be sweet onions (such as Vidalia, Maui, or Walla Walla). Regular onions just won't taste the same.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together the cereal, sugar, paprika, garlic salt, and seasoned salt.
  2. Separate onion sices into rings- you will only need to use the large size rings, save the smaller rings for another use.
  3. Beat egg until foamy in a small bowl.
  4. Dip onion rings into first the egg, then coat with seasonings (you may need another egg or a little extra seasoning mixture if your onions are particularly large).
  5. Set on greased baking sheets in one layer.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 F for about 15-20 minutes or until coating is crispy and onions are tender.

These were delicious - just don't have any preconceptions of them having a 'fried' taste - they don't. A great alternative.

I have to give this a 5 star, my son is the pickiest eater ever and he wanted deep fried onion rings and I hadn't any oil so I started a search and ran across this recipe and it was a great hit...I will make again...

Found these to be very good for baked onion rings. Made half a batch and served with your Recipe#318999#318999 and asparagus. I think I might try using some panko next time. Thank you! Made for Spring PAC 09.
