Baked Onion Rings

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I know I did!  I enjoyed all of the wonderful once a year foods and I’m back to my healthy diet.  I hope you all did the same!

The recipe today is one that I bet you thought could never fit into a healthy lifestyle, right?  Well, check out these babies:

If you’ve heard of “Hungry Girl” or read much of her stuff you may have seen this recipe.  I actually just got it off of the back of my box of Fiber 1 cereal.  So, no, I didn’t make it up unfortunately.  Here’s what you do:

  • 1 onion
  • 1/4 c. egg beaters
  • 1/2 c. Fiber 1 cereal, crushed in a blender to bread crumb consistency

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Slice onions into approx 1 inch slices.  Separate into rings.  Pour 1/4 c. egg beaters in one dish and 1/2 cup of crushed Fiber 1 in another bowl.   (Optional:  Add seasonings to the cereal like garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano, etc)  Dip onion rings in the egg and then the cereal mixture.  Lay in a single layer on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 30 min flipping half way through. 

The second time I made these I did it a much quicker way.  I put the onion rings in a bigger bowl (that they would all fit in at once) and then I poured the egg beaters over the top and made sure they were all coated.  I put the cereal crumbs in a gallon size ziplock and threw the onions in there.  Shake, shake, shake and wala!  You have your onion rings.  This way is much quicker and less messy too!

I hope you enjoy these!
