I love onion rings but try to stay away from deep fried foods. These are exceptionally good. This recipe serves 4 but I'll bet 2 can go through the lot of them. This is not my original recipe and I can't remember who to give credit to, but thanks to someone. enjoy!Try using Panko Crumbs- Don't worry if they are not completed coate the crunch will still be there
- 1⁄4 cup plain breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 medium onions, cut cross ways into 3/16-inch rings
- 2 tablespoons 1% low-fat milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a cookie sheet with lite olive oil or other veggie oil.
- Mix bread crumbs, oregano & cayenne (mix these ingredients on a sheet of wax paper it will make the next step easier).
- Dip onion rings into the milk and allow the excess to drip back into the bowl.
- Dip into the crumb mixture.
- They won't be fully coated, don't worry they will still have a crunch (especially with Panko crumbs).
- Place onion rings in a single layer on the cookie sheet.
- Bake onion rings until the crumbs are golden and the onions are soft (approx 30 minutes).
- Sprinkle with salt & pepper and then serve.
I was apprehensive about trying these as I thought I'd be too used to deep-fried. These were great! Next time, I'm going to try adding a bit of cornmeal with the crumbs.
Even though I love deep-fried onion rings, they don't always agree with me. NOW I can eat as many o-rings as I want - these are great! I had Italian-flavored bread crumbs on hand so used those instead of plain and cut down a little on the salt. The cayenne pepper adds a "kick". Not a big oregano fan but this blended well with the other flavors. Thanks, Bergy (again!).
Wow, these onion rings are as good as any we've ever had, really enjoyed them. they had a nice little kick to them. I followed Kat's lead and added a little cornmeal to the bread crumbs, it made them quite crunchy and delicious. Used walla Walla sweet onions, DH couldn't get enough of them and has already asked that we make them again soon. Thanks for sharing Bergy, can't figure how I left them in my cookbook for so long without trying them, now I have we will be having them often.
