Baked Onion Rings are a delicious, healthier version of everyone’s favorite appetizer. Made simply with onions, all-purpose flour, and egg whites, these homemade onion rings are baked to perfection in just 20 minutes.
What you need:
- 2 sweet Vidalia onions (sliced into ½ inch rings)
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp seasoned salt
- 4 egg whites, whisked
- 1/16 tsp hot sauce
- 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (whole wheat or regular)
- Cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Cover 1-2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. Most likely you will need two baking sheets so the rings don't overlap at all. Slice the onions into rings, about 1/2 inch each.
Mix together the flour and seasoned salt in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, add the whisked egg whites and hot sauce. Place the breadcrumbs in another shallow dish. This is to create your breading station.
Dip the onion rings in the flour, then the egg whites letting any excess drip off, and then dip into the breadcrumbs. Place on the baking sheet in a single layer. You can speed this process up by adding the breading to a Ziploc bag and then adding the coated onions there. Shake the bag to coat. The coating won't be quite as even, but it is significantly faster.
Spray the onion rings well with cooking spray. Bake for 10-12 minutes until beginning to get brown and crispy on the bottom.
Flip over carefully and spray the tops with cooking spray. Cook an additional 7-10 minutes until golden brown.
We hope you enjoy this delicious Baked Onion Rings recipe.
