Onion Rings

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.4 (226 votes)

We couldn’t get enough of these crunchy onion rings in the EatingWell Test Kitchen. Try any seasoning blend that you have on hand to add flavor to the breading or substitute 1 teaspoon salt instead. Seasoned whole-wheat breadcrumbs are available in some supermarkets and natural-foods stores. If you can find them, try them in place of the plain breadcrumbs and seasoning blend.

Just okay

I used sweet vidalia onions and jerk seasoning in the dry mix and egg whites. I probably should have used whole egg to make the coating thicker but it was okay. Next time, I'll try different spices but it's a keeper, just needs some tweaking.

Crispy but not greasy

Crunchy and Flavorful

These onion rings blow any restaurant's out of the water. They turned out crunchy and delicious. I opted to use egg whites/ egg beaters instead of the eggs because of its convenience. I also made my own breadcrumbs by toasting slices in the toaster and pulsing them in the food processor once cooled. I doubled the amount of the breadcrumb mixture because I found there wasn't enough to completely cover each ring. With these changes, it is sure to be a success.

Great base recipe

I made some slight modifications to start using 2 eggs and 1/2 cup milk, adding the seasoning to the flour and using salt-free seasoning. They were nice and crisp and the rings themselves were tender and sweet. I think maybe adding Tabasco sauce to the egg/milk mixture and seasoning to both the flour and bread crumbs should help.

Crispy & not greasy

If you used the old bay

If you used the old bay seasoning AND garlic salt ya you have a salty problem. I omitted the old bay (seasoning used in a lot of seafood stuffing) and used garlic POWDER and black pepper with a dash of salt .

To the poster above - you

To the poster above - you should invest in a silicone baking brush. I use it all the time to evenly distribute oil and melted butter. It's amazing how much oil one uses if it isn't measured properly!

then why did you rate it 4 stars? and the receipe doesn't even call for salt, so that had to be your own doing...

Um... yeah...Anonymous the recipe says to use one tbsp. of seasoning blend OR substitute one tsp of salt. If you use seasoning SALT or garlic SALT, then yeah they probably were a little salty. Special...
