You may not have considered onions as candidates for the spiralizer, but you should. They create beautiful ribbons that make this recipe reminiscent of fried shoestring onions. And because this onion ring-inspired recipe is baked rather than fried, they're really easy to make. Serve them as a side with burgers or as a crunchy healthy snack for game night.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 425 degrees F. Coat 2 large rimmed baking sheets with cooking spray.

  • Using a vegetable spiralizer, cut onions into long thin strands. Place in a large bowl and toss with oil.

  • Pulse bread in a food processor into crumbs. Add to the onions along with Parmesan, pepper, 1/4 teaspoon salt and cayenne; toss to coat. Divide between the prepared pans.

  • Bake, stirring once halfway through and rotating the pans from top to bottom and back to front, until browned in spots, 25 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and serve hot.

This recipe sounds delicious, even though I haven't yet tried it, but I would like to add a tip...drape a towel (preferably a bleachable one) over the spiralizer and the bowl catching the onions...otherwise you will have onion juice spraying all over you and your kitchen! Read More
