Baked Onion Rings

Baked Onion RingsOne of my very favorite foods is onions rings but I rarely eat them because they are so bad for me. I recently made some burgers and decided to try my hand at baking onion rings. I dipped them in flour then in an egg/milk mixture then in Italian panko crumbs. I baked them for 20 minutes and they turned out AMAZING. My husband and I really, really loved these rings. I loved how crunchy they were and the Italian seasoned panko gave them such great flavor. I served them with fry sauce (ketchup and mayonnaise mixed together). I am so excited that I can make my favorite treat at home without all the guilt.

Baked Onion Rings:
Recipe and photos by For the Love of
  • 2 sweet yellow onions, sliced into thick rings
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 1/2 cups of Italian seasoned panko crumbs
  • Cooking spray

Baked Onion Rings

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat coated with cooking spray.

Slice the onion into thick rings then separate them. Pour the flour into a bowl then season it with a bit of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper then mix well. Mix the egg and milk in a bowl until well combined. Pour the panko crumbs into another bowl. Dredge the onions first in the flour, then in the egg mixture, and finally in the panko crumbs until fully coated. Place each coated ring on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining rings. Spray the rings with cooking spray then place into the oven. Bake for 10 minutes then flip the rings over carefully with tongs. Bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. Enjoy.

    I really want to make this but I only have regular panko crumbs. Do you have any suggestions as to what seasonings I should add to my plain panko? Thanks!

    I would season the panko with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, garlic powder, dried basil, and dried oregano. I hope this helps.

    My family and I tried these this evening. They were surprisingly good. We found the panko to be kind of harsh/sharp on the mouth. Do you think regular bread cumbs would suffice?

    Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe.

    Yum- just made these for dinner and they were so good. I wasn't expecting them to be as good as they were- no need for frying at all! I used my Misto to spray olive oil on them. So good!
