Before I forget what I did, I'm posting it here. These are a mix of a couple different recipes already posted on Zaar. Thank you!
- 1 sweet onion, sliced
- 1⁄2 cup corn flake crumbs
- 1⁄2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons nonfat milk
- 1 dash black pepper
- Mix corn flake crumbs, seasoned bread crumbs and black pepper in one bowl.
- Mix 1 egg and fat free milk in another bowl, whisk with fork.
- Dip sliced onion ring into egg mixture, then coat with crumb mixture.
- Place on greased (with Pam spray) baking sheet.
- Once all onion rings have been coated, spray with Pam Spray covering all the rings.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes.
I took Luvcookns advice and dredged the onion slices in flour first, and also refrigerated for half an hour before baking. I didn't get a perfect coating, but it was quite good, certainly very tasty! I didn't split my onions into thin rings, so I had onion slices, really, which were extremely popular, I gave them to the family to snack on during sports on tv, and they just..vanished! I could have made three times as many! I will certainly make these again, either as a snack or a vegetable, very little effort and very much enjoyed!
These are the best baked onion rings!!! What I did to make the crumbs stick was dredged all the rings in flour and then in the egg mixture and then the crumbs (bound breading)...I also refrigerated them for about 30 minutes before baking. And they were awesome and no fat!!! I have missed onion rings...as we do not and will not deep fry. Thanks so much for posting. Now we won't feel guilty about eating them. Needs more stars!
*Delicious* - I used Italian seasoned crumbs with the cornflakes and these taste so much better than onion rings in restaurants, with no frying! I agree with Toni that it's impossible to get the coating to stick to the onions. I tried omitting the milk, and tried using BBQ sauce and I couldn't get the crumbs to stick to the onions. It just kept sliding off. It was a lot of work to get a little bit of crumbs stuck. I'm sure there's a way to accomplish this - if you find out let me know and I too will make these again and again!
