Onion Rings

Yesterday I had my boyfriend and some friends over for dinner. I decided to make pizza but wanted to have some sort of appetizer. I finally decided to give baked onion rings a try =), I have never been a huge fan of onion rings but most of my family likes them and my boyfriend loves onions. They turned out really good and crunchy, everyone loved them and every single onion ring gotten eaten! The cream dip I decided to make was a huge hit as well and I had to make a double batch.  

Onion Rings

-2 large onions  -1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. of whole wheat flour  -1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. white flour  -2 tbsp. corn starch  -1 cups of cold milk  -1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs  -1 tsp. salt  -3 tsp. olive oil


-Cut the two large onions into ½ inch thick slices, if you like thicker onion rings make the slices thicker. Make sure you slice the onion on its side not from top to bottom.
-Separate the onions into rings and place into a bowl.
-Place the 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. of w.w. flour, 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. white flour, 2 tbsp. of corn starch and 1 cups of cold milk into a bowl, whisk until all the clumps are out.
-Put the 1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs, 1 tsp. of salt and 3 tsp. of olive oil into another bowl and mix together.
-Get a baking pan, cover it with aluminum foil and lightly grease the aluminum foil.
-Now, set everything up from left to right. Onions, batter, bread crumbs and pan.
-Dip an onion ring into the batter with one hand and with the other sprinkle the bread crumbs all over and lay onto the pan.
-Do this with all of the onions and do not let them touch on the pan or they will stick.
-Pre-heat the oven when you are almost done to 150 degrees Celsius or 302 degrees Fahrenheit.
-Bake the onions for about 10 minutes, until they start to turn golden brown, flip and bake for about 5 more minutes.
Onion rings served with broccoli rabe florets, carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, and veggie dip. (The onions rings shown here are less than half of the recipe so it makes a lot more than it looks!)
