home style baked onion rings

home style baked onion rings

cravings for me come out of no where - like driving down the road heading back from joseph & the technicolor dream coat play that your friend was in , dreaming about ice cold beer & onion rings.

i couldn't stop thinking about onion rings - crispy, chewy, crunchy.
yep. that would describe the perfect ring.

we had one onion ready (shout out to matt, this is one of your baby onions; it survived!) in the garden
justin was dying to pull it - he pretty much asked me everyday if & when he could
my original grand plan was to use all the onions grown for salsa - problem was this onion was massive, and was ready to be plucked from the earth

thus the baked onion ring was born

i am not a huge fan of frying
frying = messy stove + eminent danger of burning ones finger + fatty food

when you think about it, onion rings are pretty simple. you just need to figure out if you are a thick, medium or thin cut kinda girl (or boy!)

a few ingredients and you are on your way to a mighty tasty partner for a veggie burger

onion + flax eggs + seasoned flour + almond buttermilk + breadcrumbs = oniony bliss

set up your coating station & prepare for messy, gunky fingers
