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.

Loved this idea! Can't really go wrong w/ it...I ate it w/ Trader Joe's pizza sauce and it was a wonderful dinner! I'm gonna be making one of these healthy junk foods at least twice a week so look out for more!

one of my guilty pleasures, all cleaned up!
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

I loved it!! the rings were even better than in a restaurant!!

crunchy, 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.
