Crispy Baked Onion Rings with Tangy Dipping Sauce

Although onion rings are often a classic burger and steak side – kick, they can be the star in any meal. Onions can help regulate and even lower blood sugar, prevent ulcers and destroy free radicals. So, bake ‘em up! These onion rings won’t last long, especially when served with this tangy dipping sauce. (If you’re gluten-free, use rice flour and gluten-free croutons to coat the rings.)

Serves 4 to 8

Tangy Dipping Sauce

½ cup sour cream

2 Tbsp seafood sauce

¼ tsp dried oregano

Pinch garlic salt

Pinch black pepper

Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)


Crispy Baked Onion Rings

1 large sweet yellow onion, cut into slices ½ inch thick

1½ cups white flour

2 large eggs

2 Tbsp milk

1½ cups crushed croutons

½ tsp seasoning salt


Prepare the sauce by mixing the sour cream, seafood sauce, oregano, garlic salt, black pepper and cayenne (if using) in a small bowl. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to use. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Separate the onion into rings and place on a plate. Place the flour in a bowl and set aside. Whisk the egg and milk together in a separate shallow bowl and set aside. Mix the crushed croutons and seasoning salt in a large resealable bag and set aside. Place the items on your work surface in the following order: onions, flour bowl, egg mixture and bag of crumbs. Place the baking sheet after the crumb mixture. Use one hand for the dry work and the other for the wet work to prevent a grand mess (left hand dry, right hand wet, or re – versed for lefties). Place one onion ring in the flour mixture and coat, then coat in egg, turning with a fork. Then toss and coat in the crumbs and place each on the baking tray. Repeat with the remaining onion rings. Bake for 8 minutes each side or until tender and golden. Serve with dipping sauce.
