Oven Baked Onion Rings?

Hey, has anyone ever tried oven baken onion rings? How does it turn out? I noticed that most recipes are pretty similar, some sort of wet bath and then crumbs of some sort.

I bought 2 walla walla onions that I want to make onion rings but for health reasons, dont want to deep fry. Was thinking of having oven baked chicken to go with it.

Ok I tried this last night. Took Walla Walla onions, cut dipped in egg whites and then in a mix of crumbs, paremsan cheese and black pepper. It was WONDERFUL!!! They don't have the exact taste of the deep fried rings, but I acually prefer them because I don't feel really guilty about eating it and I can have more!

I cooked the rings in a 450 oven for 15 minutes.

Thanks htc - but I still need a tad clarification - only because of the cooking time. Would you say they are more 1/2" or 1" rounds. We have restaurants that do the super skinny and then the big huge fat ones (sorry to be a pain but I really want to make these).

No problem. I think it was closer to 1 inch. Play around and add herbs, I did that for some and think those turned out pretty good. Let me know how you like them. I love junk food, so am so happy when I can find a close healthy alternative!

Well I think they taste better deep fried in some oil.

If you cook them at the right temperature very little oil will get soaked up by the onion rings.
