Savory Baked Onion Rings
"If you love onion rings but not the fat from deep-frying them, try baking them," suggests Marilyn Lee of Richmond, Missouri. The crisp rings round out lunch...or make a scrumptious snack.
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min.
- 2 large sweet onions
- 2 eggs
- 1-1/2 cups crushed cornflakes
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
- Cut onions into 1/2-in. slices; separate into rings. In a shallow dish, whisk eggs. In another shallow dish, combine the cornflake crumbs, sugar, paprika, garlic salt and seasoned salt. Dip onion rings into eggs, then coat with cornflake mixture.
