Oven baked onion rings

If you've ever tasted onion rings, then you know how addictive they are. I just had to see their picture in a newspaper to decide that I have to make them!!! The idea for baking them instead of deep-frying came from Rachel Ray talkshow. I cannot say it is much healthier, but definitely contain less calories!!! Plus... so easy to make!!!

What we need:

1-2 big onions
1 egg
3 tbsp of flour
3 tbsp of bread crumbs
1 tbsp of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
smoked paprika powder ( for extra flavour)
some dried dill

What we have to do:

1. Peel and slice onions, decide slices into rings.
2. Mix bread crumbs with salt, pepper, dried dill and smoked paprika powder. Whisk the eggs.
3. Roll each onion ring in egg, flour, then again in egg and bread crumbs.
4. Put some oil on a baking sheet and place onion rings.
5. Preheat the oven 175C and bake for 30 min. Serve with your favourite dip ( I generally mix mayonaise and ketchup)! Enjoy!!!

  1. They are certainly healthier than the deep fried variety. Yours look wonderful.
