Healthier Onion Rings

Serves 1 Hungry boyfriend in 30 minutes
Sliced onion

  • 3 cups cornflakes
  • 1 cup panko (find this in the asian section at the market)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup low fat buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 sweet onion, peeled, top cut off, and sliced into rings
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  In a food processor, pulse corn flakes and panko until fine crumbs form.  Pour mixture into a medium bowl.  In a shallow dish or bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk, flour, and cayenne pepper.  Season with salt and pepper.

2.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Prepare an assembly line.  Dip 1 onion ring into egg mixture, shaking off excess.  Coat completely with corn flake mixture, and then place on baking sheet.  Repeat with the rest of the onion rings.  Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil onto baking sheet with prepared onions.  Swirl around making sure each onion ring gets some oil.  Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.  

3.  These are great with fish sticks or steak.  My boyfriend Mitch likes to have these with ketchup.
