In my quest to cook my favorite foods and make them healthier, I cannot wait until you try this baked version of onion rings!! Super crunchy... will be making them again real soon! Here I served them as a side to steak.
Yields about 4 servings
1 large sweet onion, sliced ½-inch rings
1 quart buttermilk
2 chipotles in adobo, minced
1½ cups panko bread crumbs
2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
Salt and pepper
1. In a large bowl, mix buttermilk and minced chipotles, stir well to combine. Soak onion rings in buttermilk mixture in refrigerator for 2 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 450ºF. Prepare a large baking sheet with easy release foil paper or parchment paper.
3. Mix together the panko bread crumbs, ½ teaspoon of salt, and pinch of pepper. Set half of the breading mixture aside.
4. Drain the onions, and using your hands, gently dip into the breading,coating on both sides. Place onions onto lined baking sheet. When breading gets too wet, switch to breading that you set aside.
5. Finish breading onion rings,spray entire pan with cooking spray. Bake in 450-degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Serve right away. Yields about 4 servings.
Note: I served the onion rings with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce. You can find it here: http://www.hispanickitchen.com/profiles/blogs/roasted-red-pepper-sauce
