Don’t you just love onion rings? We do!
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am anti-fast food, however I am married to No Baking Papa and he isn’t always on board about this. I also don’t like to fry. Beside the mess involved with frying anything, the cost in calories is staggering.
I was excited to give Chef John’s recipe for Oven Baked Onion Rings a try. There are a couple of tricks that make these work.
- Panko crumbs make a huge difference in the crunch factor.
- Baking at 450° and using the convection setting really helps to form a crispy crust.
- Although Chef John doesn’t have you season the flour, egg whites and panko crumbs, I did add seasoning and I think that added a lot to the overall flavor.
- I lined my sheet pan with parchment paper, well sprayed with cooking spray. It makes for a very easy clean up!
I would give these 5 stars.
No Baking Papa gave them 4 stars, stating, “If I can’t have fried, these will do.”
Mind you, he didn’t leave any on the plate so I think he liked them more than he let on.
