I saw this is America's Test Kitchen today and they looked so delicious! They used Regular Lay's potato chips and saltine crackers for their breading, but they didn't say how much, I am guessing at least 1/2 cup of each.
- Heat oven to 450°F When hot, oil two baking sheet with the oil and place into the oven to get hot, about 8 minutes.
- Cut off the ends of the onions and peel the outer layer off. Slice into 2 Inch thick slices. Remove the inside layers to created the rings.
- In a food processor, combine the potato chips and the saltine crackers and mix fine into crumbs. Lay them into a medium sized bowl.
- In another separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, egg, and salt, pepper, and cayenne and stir to combined.
- In a small bowl add the 1/4 cup of flour.
- Now to assemble the onion rings. Dip each ring into the flour first to get it dried. Dip them into the buttermilk mixture and then into the crumb mixture.
- Lay them onto a dish.
- Remove the baking sheets from the oven and place the rings on the hot pans, allowing enough room to fry. There should be 12 rings on each sheet.
- Place back in the oven and cook for about 8 minutes. Remove them from the oven and turn each ring to assure both sides get fried. Place back in the oven and continue cooking for about 8-10 minutes and golden brown.
- Allow to cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
Delicious! We enjoyed these onion rings very much. The combo of the saltines and kettle chips (yes, I used kettle chips) was so tasty. I will most definately be making these again. Thanks for sharing the recipe LDSMom128. Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
