Onion Rings

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 love onion rings and these were almost gross. I used whole wheat flour and bread crumbs and the rings tasted like powdered cardboard. They did get very crunchy.

I think the main reason mine were not very good is the lack of fat. I didn't have cooking spray which meant that the coating was very dry and didn't brown properly. When I realized this was happening, I tried to fix it by lightly drizzling olive oil over them. Obviously, pouring oil on rings sort of blew the idea that they were healthy and since I couldn't evenly distribute the oil, it only made them moderately better.

I think I will try this again, and toy with 3 things: omitting the flouring step (since the flour seemed to be a prominent flavor in the result); Try stronger flavorings (I just did salt and a grated parmesan/romano blend in the crumbs); Have olive oil cooking spray and use it thoroughly. I will definitely use something different for bread crumbs, but probably still use whole wheat.

These are such a great alternative to greasy onion rings! I LOVE this recipe and I will make these again any time I get the urge to splurge on calories ...without having to!

These really didn't take as long as I thought they would to prepare. Only about 15-18 min. My family loved them also. I thought they were a little too crunchy. I used regular seasoned bread crumbs. Seasoned them with seasoned salt and a touch of cayanne. So easy. Will make them again.

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.
