DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450; pour oil onto rimmed baking sheet; set aside.
  • Slice onion four times across, to make wide rings; discard the small inside ones (chop & freeze-dry for later use); set aside.
  • Pulse cornflakes and breadcrumbs in blender/processor until very fine crumbs; transfer to medium bowl.
  • In another medium bowl, whisk egg, milk, flour and seasonings.
  • Place oiled baking sheet in oven for TWO MINUTES to heat up.
  • Dip rings into egg mixture (let excess drip off), dredge in cornflake mixture; place on a plate.
  • Arrange onion rings on heated oil-sheet; bake (turning once) until rings are golden brown (about 16 minutes).
  • Season with more salt.
  • SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Eat as is, with your choice of dipping sauce (ketchup, ketchup/yellow mustard, Zip's Sauce, ranch, barbecue, etc).
  • Serve skinny cut rings over the top of your favorite burger. Especially good on mushroom-n-Swiss burgers!
