Baked Onion Rings

baked onion rings

These are some easy-peasy onion rings! And might I add that they are healthy too! It only takes 3 ingredients + seasonings, and viola! You have onion rings. I love these because I enjoy eating something guilt-free that I normally would hate myself for eating because of the large amounts of grease it usually carries. I am sure kids will love ‘um too!

These glorious rings are pictured here next to my Tofu with Brussel Apple Slaw.

Baked Onion Rings


  • 1 or 2 medium yellow onions -depending how many people you want to feed
  • (I used 1 onion for the two of us)
  • 1 egg
  • Italian bread crumbs
  • Any extra seasonings you would like to add to the bread crumbs. (like pepper, garlic powder, chili pepper etc)

To Do:

Preheat your oven to 350 degree F

Cut your onion, so you get the rings intact.

Prepare for tears!! It’s inevitable. I once tried wearing goggles while cutting up a bunch of onions, and I still cried (even as my boyfriend took a picture of me in my nerdy-ness). Your best bet is to make sure to breathe completely through your mouth and not your nose.

Scramble up your egg in a bowl and pour some of your bread crumbs in another.

Separate your onion slices into rings and dip each one into the egg, then the crumbs, then lay them on a cookie sheet.

Cook for about 20 minutes, or until they are browned. Make sure to flip them over halfway through cooking time.

Eat with ketchup, ranch, or even just plain- which is the way I like them :)

    I was kinda skeptical at first, but that recipe looks really, really good. Will try it the next time I make burgers.
