The secret to tasty oven-fried food is well-seasoned coatings and a hot oven. 4 points per serving.
- olive oil flavored cooking spray (3 sprays)
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1⁄4 teaspoon table salt
- 2 large Spanish onions, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds and separated into rings
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, garlic powder, dry mustard and salt. Add onions and toss to coat.
- Pour buttermilk into another large bowl, add onions and toss to coat (use your hands for the best result).
- Place bread crumbs in another large bowl, add onions and toss to coat. Transfer onions to prepared baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.
- Bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes. Serve hot. Yields about 1/2 an onion per serving.
- Flavor Booster: Give onion rings more crunch and fiber by using homemade multi-grain bread crumbs. Place 2 slices of toasted multi-grain bread in a food processor or blender and mince using on/off pulses.
The coating was excellent, but not for onion rings. Use it on chicken or something else.
I only rated this as good because the directions say to use seasoned breadcrumbs. Like someone else said, this might be good on chicken, but the flavor wasn't something id expect from onion rings. It'd be better to use just reg breadcrumbs and add in some spices to season them. Other than the funkiness of seasoned breadcrumbs, this was a good recipe that i will make again, with the minor alterations.
These were good crunchy onion rings and had good flavour, also very easy to prepare. I couldn't get my crumbs to form a good coating, so although we loved this recipe, I am going to try again, to see if I can get a good crumbed result, before I post a photo! Well worth making again, tho!
