Can you use other kinds of onions to make baked onion rings?
Sweet onions' flavor carries through nicely for baked onion rings, and the sweetness develops even further as they bake. However, yellow or white onions can be substituted. Red onions have a stronger taste more suited to salads and sandwiches—probably not your best choice for onion rings.
What kind of bread crumbs are best to use in baked onion rings?
Any kind of dry breadcrumbs should work for this baked onion rings recipe. Just be sure they are fine crumbs, so they uniformly coat the onion rings. Larger crumbs might fall off too easily.
What can you serve with baked onion rings?
Baked onion rings make a terrific snack on their own, served with condiments and dipping sauces such as ketchup, ranch or
thousand island dressing. You can also make your own sauce such as the one paired with this
blooming onion. Of course, these onions go great with an all-American
grilled chicken sandwich.
