Yeah, they’re really that good.
Plus, they’re cheap and easy – what more can a gal ask for?
A lover of anything battered and fried is so unkind to my waistline, therefore I’m always in search of the ‘skinny’ alternative. So here’s a baked onion ring recipe that has received all kinds of accolades from my kitchen consumers.
One large onion
Bread crumbs (to make gluten-free as I did, use Corn Flake crumbs)
1/2 cup flour (I used gluten-free) with salt and pepper to taste
Wax paper to prevent mixture sticking to cupboard (I learned this step the hard way – I am NO genius in the kitchen)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
On a sheet of wax paper, place the flour mixture on one side and a pile of bread crumbs on the other.
Place the egg substitute in a bowl.
I’m such a kitchen diva that I use utensils when I smother and cover the onion rings. After all, my nails are jewels, not tools (I work hard on those Mani Monday posts dammit!).
Place rings on baking sheet and put in the oven for about 10 minutes. Flip the onions and bake another 5. Serve immediately.
My Skinny Os have about 75 calories per serving. But if you eat the entire batch (like I often do – I can’t help myself!), you can avoid feeling too guilty with a grand total of 240 calories vs. the 700+ for the fried version.
O-O-OH so delish!
Great job! CBXB
Thanks – I impressed myself, too! I’m not so smart in the kitchen!
Mmmm onion rings! Could it be better? Enjoy!
No – it doesn’t get much better….unless the onion rings are fried!
They look delish! xo
I can never stop eating and end up with a stomach ache!
There are very few problems that cannot be fixed with alcohol and excessive grease intake. Imo, anyway.
I couldn’t agree more! I make these rings when I’m trying to be “good” and a prior night of over indulging in alcohol was not involved.
Hmm they sound good!
They’re magically delicious!
I am making these – based on the title of the blog post alone!
Ha! You never know what could happen….!
They are really good. I tried a similar recipe a few months ago. Cheap and easy to make. Thanks for sharing!
And we save a few calories, too! Thanks Adrian!
Sounds great will have to give them try.
Do it! Will be worth your while.
Yo’ onion rangs look good. In your next blog, could you instruct us, your handsome and humble readers what you recommend to counteract the impending ‘Breath O’ Doom’?
I’ll have to do some research. See, I keep my ‘Breath O’Doom’ to ward off the Nashville vampires beating down my door.
Kitchen diva indeed! 🙂 Hope you and Teddy have an awesome day
Yeah, I’m such a big baby sometimes! We’re having a fab day – although Ted’s stomach is upset because I let him have an onion ring. Those curious cats!
