Crispy Oven Baked Onion Rings

I am trying to stay healthy, but sometimes you like a burger and some onion rings, right?!?! Well, here's what I came up with for the onion rings. I have used all panko bread crumbs when I didn't have any baked potato chips, and all baked potato chips when I felt naughty, and they are all good. I usually just make this recipe for the 2 of us, and we don't have many leftover if any.....and my husband doesn't normally order rings when we are out! Let me know which way you like best :)

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean-up and spray it slightly with oil and set aside.
  • Place potato chips and panko bread crumbs in the bowl of a food processor and process into crumbs, about 20 seconds. Transfer to a shallow bowl, add cayenne, and set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine buttermilk, 2 tablespoons of flour, salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Slice onions into 1/2-inch circles and separate into rings, keeping only large, whole rings (reserve rest of onions for other uses). You should come out with about 12 to 14 rings.
  • Place the remaining flour in a sealable plastic bag, then add onions, and shake to coat.
  • Dip onions 1 at a time into the buttermilk mixture, then dip into potato chip mixture and place on baking sheet. NOTE: For those having problems with the coating not sticking, the secret is LET THEM REST! Don't just throw them in the oven from the coating! Give them at least 5-10 minutes to soak in all that good coating you just put on and they'll stick just fine.
  • Spray canola oil evenly over rings and bake for 20 minutes, or until coating is crisp. Season with salt, to taste, and serve immediately.
