Onion Rings


Super Bowl can wreak havoc with anyone’s diet, so how about baking the onion rings instead of frying them?  This recipe tastes fabulous and baking reduces the calories.  Try it!

1 medium sized Vidalia or other sweet onion, cut crosswise into rings
2 cups Japanese style Panko breadcrumbs.
1 egg
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk*
sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

In a shallow bowl, whisk egg, flour, buttermilk*, salt & peppers.  Place breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl or on a plate.  Spread the olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet.  Dip the onion rings in the egg mixture and then coat with the Panko and put on baking sheet.  Place in a preheated 450 degree oven and bake for about 15 minutes, until golden, turning once.

*To substitute for buttermilk, add 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice to 1/2 cup 1% milk and let stand 5 min.
