and finally ended up like this, a strange looking creature, huh? actually it's my burger smothered with a slice of blue jack cheese topped with a few oven baked onion rings. those rings, real keepers, very tasty. oh, let's not forget the good ol'yellow mustard and ketchup for dipping making for another winner of a dinner.
lets talk about those oven baked rings. gosh they were ever so good and super simple to make. i used a red onion, but next time will definitely use a vidalia sliced thicker. here is how you make them.
beth's easy baked oven onion rings
first you plug in your pink plastic oven to get the light bulb heated. what? just joking....heat your oven to 450 degrees fahrenheit. cover a cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
now slice one onion neatly. do better than me would ya. i had to pick out the nicer looking rings and they still weren't so pretty. set aside. get three bowls for your dipping station. in the first bowl put about a half cup of all purpose flour seasoned with salt and pepper. you really could add anything you like, little garlic salt, cayenne, etc...
next bowl, mix one egg white with two tablespoons of milk. whip with a fork till well combined.
last bowl, pour in about a cup of panko bread crumbs.
line in them up in that order-flour, egg white and panko. dip, shake, dip, drip, plop and pat. do it till you have all the rings you can handle. now bake for about fifteen minutes. i could have let mine go a tad longer to be a bit browner. i was truly surprised how good theses are. now they aren't dairy queen good, but are quite close. well, no, not really, but trust me they are good and a lot less guilt. enjoy.
