DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One cereal to a breadcrumb-like consisten cy. Pour crumbs into a plastic container that has an airtight lid (or into a sealable plastic bag). Add panko, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and salt. Add as much pepper as you like. Seal and shake to mix thoroughly.
  • Make sure calamari rings are as dry as possible. (Use a paper towel to soak up moisture.) Place them in a dish, and pour egg substitute over them. Toss to coat evenly.
  • Transfer rings to the crumb mixture, and secure lid or seal bag. Shake until rings are thoroughly coated, and then place rings on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Open any rings that are sticking to themselves.
  • Bake calamari in the oven for 15 minutes, flipping them about halfway through, until firm and fully cooked. If you like, sprinkle with Parm-style topping and serve with lemon wedges and/or marinara sauce. YUM!
