INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium onion, sliced into 1/4 inch rings
  • 2 1/4 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup crushed corn flake crumbs
  • salt to taste
  • olive oil baking spray

DIRECTIONS

  • Place slices of onion in a shallow dish. Pour the buttermilk over
    the top and let them soak for about 1 – 2 hours, refrigerated
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment
    paper or foil.
  • Combine panko, bread crumbs and corn flakes and
    place half of the crumbs in a large dish, season with salt. Reserve the rest for
    when the first batch is used up. This should help avoid clumping and they should
    stick better to the onions.
  • Dip each soaked onion ring into the crumb mixture; coat well.
    Place rings onto two cookie sheets. Lightly spray with oil.
    Bake about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.

These aren’t difficult to make and don’t take that long, which is perfect for saturday afternoons when you need a snack and you need it now!

I’m impatient when it comes to food, especially when it’s vital that food gets in my body.  These are great for me because they are fast and easy enough to make.  They also are perfect for that little greasy snack you need without regretting it later.  They are crispy and delicious.  My friends are also impressed by them, which makes me laugh inside because they don’t take much effort.

Enjoy!
