Baked Onion Rings!

One of my favorite foods, hands down, is onion rings!  I know they have the tendency to give you bad breath, but it's soo worth it!  I don't know why I love them so much, but I do, it's a problem of mine:)  I found some delicious looking home-made onion ring recipes to try on Pinterest and the one I chose was this one from Annie's Eats:)

I changed it up just a tiny bit because I couldn't find one of the ingredients it called for!

1/2 C of flour divided
1 large egg
1/2 C of buttermilk
1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 sleeves of vegetable Ritz crackers
4 C of kettle cooked potato chips
2 large onions
6 tbsp of canola oil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  In a shallow baking dish, such as a bowl, measure 1/4 of a cup of flour.  Grab another bowl and mix together the egg and buttermilk.  Next add in your remaining dry ingredients ( flour, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper).  Take out your food processor and put in the Ritz crackers and the potato chips until they are finely ground.

Put in food processor
I have to say, this was my first time using our food processor and I've had it since our wedding in July!  It took me a while to figure this thing out!  When I did though, it worked wonderfully:)  Take your Ritz and potato chip mixture and place in a casserole dish.  Slice your onions to about 1/2 inch thick.  Dip your onions into the flour then into the liquid mixture.  Lastly,  dip it into the crumb mixture and place on to a greased pizza/cookie sheet pan!

Dip into different mixtures
When pan is full, set timer for 8 minutes and then after the time is up flip your onion rings over.  Then set the timer for another 8 minutes.  They are ready to serve and enjoy:):)

Still need to plate
Ready to Serve!!!!
Hope you have a fantastic day:)

Thanks for stopping by:):):):)

Until next time!!!!!

  1. was checking out the onions rings you wanted to make. These look so good. I love onion rings and never care if they give me bad breath because they are so worth eating! Loving that you found a healthier alternative.

    1. Yes, I was happy that I found one that didn't have to be fryed! At home, I try not to do that, just to make it a little healthier and because I hate the smell that frying leaves behind!

  2. These look so good. I have done baked onion rings before with breadcrumbs and flour, but your toppings look so much yummier!

    1. I bet bread crumbs would be tasty too:)

  3. Yum!These look so good and I love onions! I am a bit of a freak when it comes to onions...I love them on everything! Thanks so much for visiting me! Happy Easter and have a wonderful long weekend! Angie xo

    1. I love onions just as much as you! I like them on just about anything too:) You have a wonderful weekend and Easter also!!!

  4. So these look yummy but are they on the Weight Watchers diet plan ...?

    I'm counting my points here before Summer swimsuit season kicks in ...


  5. Yummy! I would love for you to link this up to my Unveil Your Genius link party (new linky every Thursday).

    Happy Thursday!

    1. Thanks Taylor! I will definitely have to do that:)

  6. Yum--I'm an onion ring fan too, but have never tried baking them. I'm intrigued by the crumbs in the coating!!
    (picked you as a fave from the Ginger Snap Craft's party :)

    1. That just made my day! Thanks for that:) I was afraid by baking the onion rings that they wouldn't get crunchy, but with the crumb coating they did!


Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog:) If you have any questions then feel free to ask away and I will get back to you!
