Baked Onion Rings

I took these onions…


cut them into these shapes…


I then breaded each one…



Tossed them (well, gently!) into the oven for 25 minutes and they came out like this!



I loved these onion rings! I have a feeling they will be making an appearance a lot more often. Which is funny because I don’t typically like onions. But I suppose a nice crunchy exterior makes anything taste better! Well almost anything. So, here’s another simple recipe – try them out! No excuses.

Baked Onion Rings
from this recipe

2 yellow onions
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
2 cup panko breadcrumbs (seasoned or season on your own with dried herbs)
3 eggs, whisked

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Peel and cut the onions into 1/2” wide sections and carefully pop out the “ring” sections.

Prepare three bowls for breading. One with the eggs. A second with flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder. The last one with the panko. To bread the onion rings, dip them into the egg first to lightly coat them, then into the flour, back to the egg again and finally into the panko. Place the breaded onion rings onto a baking sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray. Repeat the process until all are finished.

Once finished, generously coat the onion rings with non-stick cooking spray to ensure even browning.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown, flipping halfway through.
