Oven Baked Onion Rings 2 Ways

 I know that most of you are probably already busy baking up holiday treats to share, but we still need to put dinner on the table every night, right?  So I will continue to share our family meals and hopefully add in some holiday treats soon too.

I thought some oven baked onion rings would go perfect with our Roast French Dip Sandwiches we were having for dinner.  I wanted to try a couple of different coatings to see which ones my family preferred.  

I recently made Bobby Deen's very crispy Un-fried Chicken Strips using corn flakes as the coating.  I just knew I could use these for onion rings as well.  They were sweet and crunchy without all the grease and mess.  My girls enjoyed these onion rings the most.  One dipped them in ketchup, one dipped in ranch, and one dipped in ranch and ketchup. 

 The other onion rings were made using Ritz crackers as the coating.  They were salty with a little kick from cayenne pepper.  I dipped them in my Buttermilk Garlic Ranch Dip.  I found these onion rings at Georgia's The Comfort of Cooking.

Now, onto the recipes.  The recipes are slightly different, but the method is the same.

Sweet Corn Flake Onion Rings Ingredients: 
1 sweet yellow onion, cut into rings
1/2 cup flour
1 cup low-fat buttermilk (I used 2% milk and made my own)
1 egg white
1/4 tsp kosher salt
3 cups crushed Corn Flakes
cooking spray

Ritz Salty and Spicy Onion Rings Ingredients:
1 sweet yellow onion, cut into large rings
1/2 cup flour
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 egg white
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
3 cups Ritz crackers, crushed
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

In a large bowl, add the flour.  In another large bowl, add the buttermilk, egg white, and seasonings and whisk to combine.  Add the crushed coating to a gallon size zip lock bag. 

Dip each onion ring into the flour, then into the buttermilk, and add to the zip lock bag.  Work in small batches (I put about 5 onion rings in the bag at a time), then seal it and shake well to coat.  Place the coated onion rings on a non-stick baking sheet in a single layer.  Repeat for the rest of the onion rings. 

Spray the coated onion rings with cooking spray.  Bake for 20 minutes, or until crispy.  Enjoy! 


  1. Hi Rhondi,
    You could just pass that plate of onion rings my way, I could eat that whole plate. They look so good. That looks like a great recipe, thank you for sharing and you have a wonderful week end.

  2. We eat onion rings all the time but I'm embarrassed to say frozen ones, lol. I've never made onion rings, not sure why, since we love them so much. These are much better tasting I'm sure. I'd go with the corn flakes I think because your girls liked them the best and kids know best! :o)


I love that you stopped by and are taking the time to leave a comment! I really enjoy reading them all. Thanks so much!
