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.
I made these with a super-healthy ingredients and they turned out great. For the coating I mixed cornmeal with a 9 grain high fibre hot cereal (in dry form). The cereal has the same texture as bread crumbs and the cornmeal made it a bit crisper. Add whatever seasoning you like to the crumb mixture...I used a poultry spice (which was a bit too salty). After slicing the onions I dipped them in egg white, covered them in the crumb mixture, and baked in the oven for 30 min at 375. There were perfect!
Delicious onion rings. I had a problem in the prep. The crumb mixture would not stick enough to the onions. The milk seemed too thin to hold anything. So I added abou 1/2 beaten egg to the milk. I floured the onion, then dipped it in the egg/milk mixture, and then dipped it into the crumbs. This worked a lot better. Thanks for a healthy alternative!
Followed this recipe to the "T" and there were many things I didn't understand for instance , how does 1/4 c bread crumbs cover 2 onions also with only 2 tbls. milk, and very little bread crumbs stick to the onions after dipping, The flavor isn't too bad but after 30 min the onions are done but not crispy. To Derf if these are the best onion rings you ever ate........ you don't get out enough.
Excellent, used egg white and panko with walla walla sweets. Oiled a cookie sheet with grape seed oil and turned onion rings the last 5 minutes to brown on the other side. I did use only small batches of panko at a time, as soon as rings got to wet they wouldn't hold the breading. The sweets are important, also added a small amount of parmesan to breading<br/>and sprayed the tops with canolila oil before baking. Very good
I was doubtful about this recipe, especially after coating the rings with panko (didn't look like enough coating) BUT they were delicious. We're eating healthy and this recipe will be made again and again. Thanks!
Hubby and daughter liked! If you don't like spicy, take er easy on the cayenne!
