    Baked onion rings

    Okay, so I really wanted some onion rings but I didn't want to go out and buy them (limited budget right now) and didn't want to fry (secret is I really don't know how/don't eat much fried food nowadays anyway). So I found this recipe on and i modified it so I'm posting what i did. It turned out great. I am so excited because now I can make my own healthy onion rings.

    2 lg sweet onions - sliced into rings (about 1/2in thick)
    1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    1 egg
    1 cup milk
    1 pkg (8oz) panko bread crumbs (I used Parmesan flavored)
    Garlic powder - to taste
    Old bay seasoning - to taste

    Preheat oven to 425 and spray a baking sheet with olive oil
    Combine flour, baking powder, and salt and coat onions with flour mixture, set aside - the flour sticks a little
    Whisk in egg and milk into the flour mixture and dip the floured onion rings into this batter. Lay them on a wire rack so excess batter will drip off.
    Mix panko bread crumbs, garlic powder and old bay together in a bowl. Place the battered onions into the bread crumb mixture. I ended up using a panning motion (like panning for gold) to coat the onions and it worked great.
    Place onions on baking sheet, spray with olive oil and bake for abut 20 minutes. I turned them half way through.
    I did add a bit more old bay on top of the onions while they were on the baking sheet, before I baked them, but after added the additional spray of olive oil.
    They were very tasty and had a bit of a kick with the old bay. It is a messy procedure but it was fun and the result was so worth it.
    I will definitely make again and again.

    After - they were so crispy (yes, some are missing, they are so tasty)
