This sounds good; I will definitely try it; I love onion rings, but they are always so greasy. This sounds like it might let me have them without all the oil, calories, etc.

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.

I did not try the recipe but since I am lowering my cholesterol, I realized that 79mg of cholesterol in the recipe made it twice as much as I am allowed to consume in a day-So sad, because I love a good onion ring.
My family LOVED this recipe. I used seasoned bread crumbs, because that was what we had on hand, and omitted the seasoning. I varied the thickness of the rings, and found that the thinly sliced ones are more crunchy, and the thickly (1/2 inch) sliced ones are good for a deep oniony flavor. Use a vidalia onion for an extra sweet ring.
I am not a big onion ring fan, but this recipe is very very good. Not your typical battered onion ring, but a great alternative and much less calories. Oh and my kids ate them...that says something!!!
Really enjoyed these! And the crumbs didn't fall off of the onions. I'll try this method with oven fries and also baked chicken. Very delicious.
