Baked Jalapeno Onion Rings


One of my all time favorite guiltiest pleasures when it came to the fast food world was Sonic's onion rings. Nothing cured a hangover like a greasy snack such as that-and the taste, the crunch was just so tempting! Since I ditched my old habits, I found a newer, better way to indulge in my favorite past time- by baking them instead of frying! I even added a little kick to them-a spicy kick that is!

Baked Jalapeno Onion Rings

  • 2 large yellow onions, sliced into rings
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped jalapenos
  • salt/pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Spray a cookie sheet with non stick spray.
  3. Combine bread crumbs, jalapeno, cayenne, and garlic in a shallow baking dish.
  4. Beat eggs in a bowl.
  5. Put flour into a bowl.
  6. Dredge onions (a few at a time) in wheat flour.
  7. Coat them in egg (one at a time).
  8. Cover completely with bread crumb mixture.
  9. Place in a single layer on cookie sheet.
  10. Spray rings with more non stick spray.
  11. Bake for 30- 45 minutes, depending on thickness.
  12. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to your liking.

Calories: 100 calories per 5 onion rings, depending on the size you cut them.
