  • Active: 40 minutes
  • Total time: 1 hour
  • Servings: 6, 6-7 onion rings each


2 medium yellow onions
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 large eggs
1 ½ cups fine dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning blend
olive oil or canola oil cooking spray


1. Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 450°F. Coat 2 large rimmed baking sheets with cooking spray.

2. Cut off both ends of each onion and peel. Slice into 1/2-inch-thick slices; separate into rings. Place the rings in a medium bowl and cover with cold water.

3. Combine flour and baking powder in a shallow dish. Lightly beat eggs in another shallow dish. Combine breadcrumbs and seasoning in a third shallow dish. Working with one ring at time, remove from the water, letting any excess water drip off. Coat in flour, shaking off any excess. Dip in egg and let any excess drip off. Then coat in the breadcrumb mixture, shaking off any excess. Place on the prepared baking sheets. Generously coat the onion rings with cooking spray. Repeat until all onion rings are covered.

4. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn each onion ring over and return to the oven, switching the positions of the baking sheets. Continue baking until brown and very crispy, 8 to 10 minutes more. Enjoy with a favorite sauce.
