Oven-frying lightly battered onion slices produces the kind of crispy french-fried onion rings we all love for topping casseroles, but with much less fat and fewer calories. Swap this homemade version for the canned fried onions on your green bean casserole. You can also use them to top mashed potatoes and burgers.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine onion and buttermilk in a medium bowl. Let stand for 15 minutes. Drain the onion (discard buttermilk) and return to the bowl. Sprinkle with flour, pepper and salt; toss to coat. Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet. Coat generously with cooking spray. Bake, stirring once or twice, until tender and crisp, 25 to 28 minutes. If desired, let the onions stand at room temperature for up to 2 hours.
