Chef John 21762

"It's hard to bake an onion ring as good as a deep-fried version. These are pretty good, so check it out! This makes a very crunchy, easy, no-muss, no-fuss onion ring."

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Separate onion slices into individual rings.
  3. Whisk egg whites with milk in a bowl until thoroughly combined; season egg mixture with a pinch of cayenne pepper. Place panko crumbs into a separate bowl.
  4. Place onion rings into a large resealable plastic bag. Add flour, salt, and black pepper; seal bag and shake until rings are well coated with flour.
  5. Drop flour-coated onion rings into egg white-milk mixture, a few at a time, and toss lightly with tongs until coated. Place rings into panko crumbs and gently shake the bowl to toss the crumbs with the onion rings until rings are coated with crumbs.
  6. Transfer coated onion rings to a large baking sheet; spray rings lightly with cooking spray.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until onion rings are tender and crumbs are lightly golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

For a baked version of onion rings these were very good. I did add seasoning to the flour, egg white and panko crumbs. Also, I found that using the convection setting on the oven helped to cri...

Updated: To get your flour to stick, put your onions rings in a bowl of cold water before coating. Work with one or two at a time, shaking off excess water then toss into your bag of flour mix. ...

I made these for dinner tonight. I thought they were very good, coming in at half the calories as fried ones, this is a keeper. I baked for 15 minutes. Next time I will go less than that; may...

My 16 year old son made these tonight. They were really delicious!!! We had a few different sauces to dip them in. Will be making these again....so easy to make.

It is really hard to duplicate deep fried onion rings. These were quite good. The difficult thing was trying to get the flour and then the panko bread crumbs to stick. I will try them again.

Excellent! These were better than fried - and I love friend OR's. Used the convection setting and they were perfect. Also used Mark's suggestion of crisping-up in ice water (actually sliced an...

The Panko crumbs did not stick to the rings. I will not make these again! I would not recommend these to anyone that likes onion rings!

This is the worse recipe I've ever made. The flour barely clung to the onions, most of what was left came off in the egg dip, making a pasty mess in that bowl, since there was nothing left on th...
