“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.”

Directions

  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 crisp them up really well.

These were really good for being baked. My flour didn't want to stick well and so I had only partially breaded rings when they were done. That didn't seem to hurt anything, though. They had enough coating to have a good crunch and with less coating, the onion flavor came through nicely. Also less coating meant less calories. I added some powdered garlic and onion to the flour mix. Great recipe!

Not pleased at all with this recipe. I made it as written. The onion rings were bland, the coating was dry. Not worth the time or effort. My husband and son ate one or two, then left the rest on their plates.
