Spotlight: Oven Fried Onion Rings

I posted these a few weeks ago to our Facebook page and they were so popular I figured I’d share them here as a Spotlight! The Brown Eyed Baker shares her recipe for doing onion rings, without a big ol pan of hot oil. So clever!

I adore onion rings. Love them, really. Although I hardly ever order them in place of French fries, I jump at the chance to get them as an appetizer. And now that Lent has rolled in and fish fries are in full swing, I love ordering onion rings to much on alongside that battered and fried cod sandwich. (I never claimed to be a health fanatic, now did I?) I wonder how many times a variation of the word “fry” was uttered in those first two sentences? It seems like a lot. Well, you’ll be happy to know that these are absolutely fabulous, flavorful onion rings that taste just like the best of restaurant appetizers, and they were not deep fried. They were pseudo-fried, in the oven. We’ll get to the details in a minute, but first – every good onion ring needs a spicy, kicky dipping sauce to go along with it. Sort of like the old saying that “behind every good man is a good woman”? Same thing. I did a little digging and found a copy cat recipe for the dipping sauce that is served at a certain chain restaurant alongside a certain blooming onion. The recipe rocks – it tastes just like the original. Now, on to the details of how you bake these beauties up…

Go get the recipe!
