America’s Test Kitchen came up with a really interesting way to do onion rings – in the oven!
The overall recipe is pretty basic:
- seasoned flour mixture
- buttermilk / egg mixture
- breadcrumb type mixture – they suggested using kettle chips! I used saltines and regular potato chips (it was great!)
The biggest difference was that instead of frying the onion rings in a big pot of oil, you pour 1/4 inch oil in a baking pan and place the onions in the dish and bake!
*** TIP: before you bake the onion rings, but them (all battered up!) in the fridge for about 20 mins to make sure they keep their crust.
Step 1: flour, dip, and crust! Chill in the fridge and then ready to bake.
Step 2: Bake in the oven with 1/4 inch of oil
Step 3: EAT!!! Yum….
