I love onion rings. I make them in several different ways, so many months ago I decided to search for variations that might be a little less intense on the grease factor. I found one for baked onion rings, that seemed interesting, although a few of the ingredients did strike me as odd. I tried it and indeed it was awful. I'm posting it here for others of you to evaluate...maybe even try. I like to share good and interesting recipes, to I thought it would also be fair to share one that I considered to be a dismal failure. Frankly, I don't encourage you to waste the onions and time, at least not as the recipe is written. There are definitely better recipes for baked onion rings out there. Within the body of the recipe I've included a few comments/suggestions in the event I should have a memory loss in the future and try the recipe again.

.... "That wasn't so good, now was it?!?!?"

Pancakes, Waffles, and Fritters 732 (Onion Rings 02 - Baked)

"Be sure to read the notes below before attempting this recipe."

4 large onions
1½ cups fine dry breadcrumbs (half whole wheat preferred)
½ tsp. poultry seasoning
3 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
1 egg (no substitutes)
1 tbsp. water

1. Slice each onion about ¼-inch thick and separate into rings. Soak in cold, salted water about 30 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
2. Combine breadcrumbs, poultry seasoning and Parmesan. In a separate bowl mix egg and water; beat well. Dip onion rings into breadcrumb mixture, then into egg mixture, then into crumbs again. Salt lightly, if desired.
3. Arrange rings on greased jellyroll pan, cover with foil and bake in a hot oven (400°F) for 10 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking 20 minutes more, or until crispy. Serve immediately.

NOTES: DO NOT try this recipe as written. The poultry seasoning makes it awful. I'm sure there is some way to make this palatable, but am not sure what should be done. Maybe omitting the poultry seasoning and Parmesan cheese while still seasoning with garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne would be acceptable.

Yields 8 servings
