Baked Onion Rings

These scrumptious onion rings are a much healthier version than their traditionally fried counterparts, but they are definitely just as delicious, if not better, in my opinion.

Ingredients:

1 large sweet onion

Dry Mixture:

3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs (use gluten free Panko bread crumbs for gluten free onion rings)

2 tablespoons cornmeal

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/8 teaspoon cayenne

 

Batter:

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup flour  (If using whole wheat flour, add 2 tablespoons extra water & use gluten free flour for gluten free onion rings)

Olive oil for spraying

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 450 F

In a small bowl mix together bread crumbs, cornmeal, salt, parsley, basil, paprika, and cayenne.  In a separate bowl make a batter by mixing together the water and flour.  Cut one onion into rings 1/3 inch thick and separate.  Using a fork dip the onion rings into the batter and then coat them with the bread crumb mixture.  Place on lined baking tray.  Spray the onion rings with olive oil or use a pastry brush and dab a small amount of oil onto the rings.   Bake until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes, flipping the onion rings half way through.

Serve plain or with your favorite dip!

    This was an excellent recipe, but on first try we put way too much cayenne and it was a bit too spicy but amist that it was good😋

    Chef Ani – Your recipes are an epiphany! I am supporting my wife on a low-fat, no oil vegan diet (health reasons) and have just one question. Do you have any ideas on how to avoid the last step of adding oil spray? I wonder if I can do something to the panko and cornmeal before mixing the batter (making toasting them) to get a similarly cooked crunchiness. I love your recipes and have begun to explore them. God Bless you!

      Great question! Try baking the onion rings without the oil and see how they turn out! They may not be quite as crispy, but I believe they should be delicious. Thank you for supporting me and I hope you enjoy the onion rings!
