Oven Baked Onion Rings

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.
