This is as straight forward as it gets. They came out crispy & delicious & they use no oil. I don’t know why anybody would bother frying them after sampling these.
Easy & Healthy Crispy Baked Onion Rings
Feeds two as a side
1 large sweet onion – sliced into thick rings & separated
1 quart buttermilk (or milk or vegan alternative)
1/2 cup Panko
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 cup corn flakes – crushed in a food processor or in a plastic bag using a rolling pin
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBS pepper
1 TBS dry parsley
Fresh parsley – chopped as garnish
Heat the oven to 450. Be sure it reaches full temperature.
Soak the onions in the buttermilk in the refrigerator for at least an hour – or longer.
Mix the various crumbs, dry parsley and S&P together.
Individually coat each onion ring with the crumb mixture either by shaking in the plastic bag or, as I did, in a bowl. Use your hands to coat them evenly. Place them on a cooking sheet covered in parchment paper or greased. Spray them with the cooking spray.
Bake at 450 for ten minutes or until crispy & golden. That’s it! Enjoy!
