oven fried onion rings (secret recipe club)

This month for the Secret Recipe Club I was assigned Lindsay’s blog, Life and Kitchen. Lindsay has a host of recipes on her blog that range from sweet to savory and from simple to more complex. She shares stories about her family throughout her blog posts and the pictures of her daughter are adorable! It took me a bit to decide what to make this month, but when I saw these onion rings I knew they would be a winner. Any Cook’s Illustrated recipe repeated on Annie’s Eats is guaranteed to be a real winner, and these crunchy onion rings were no exception! I love that these onion rings aren’t quite baked and aren’t quite fried. The oils from the chips that are used in the crumb mixture combined with a thin veneer of oil in the bottom of a rimmed baking sheet are all that’s necessary to make a perfectly crunchy onion ring, without the hassle of deep frying.

Looking for a fun appetizer for New Year’s this weekend? This one is a winner!

(My husband recommends that you serve these with ketchup, but you can also add them to your burgers or eat them plain!)

oven fried onion rings

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: a heaping plater of rings - maybe enough to feed 6 people?

Source: Originally from Cook's Illustrated , as seen on Life & Kitchen

Not just baked. Not quite fried. So delicious.

Ingredients

½ cup all-purpose flour, divided
1 large egg, at room temperature
½ cup buttermilk, at room temperature
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
30 saltine crackers
4 cups kettle-cooked potato chips
2 large yellow onions, sliced into ½-inch thick rings
6 tbsp. vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. Adjust oven racks to lower- and upper-middle positions. Preheat the oven to 450F. Place ¼ cup of the flour in a shallow baking dish. Beat the egg and buttermilk together in a bowl. Whisk the remaining flour, cayenne, salt and pepper into the buttermilk mixture. Combine the saltines and potato chips in a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Place half of the crumb mixture in a second shallow baking dish; reserve the other half.
  2. Working one at a time, dredge each onion ring in flour, shaking off the excess. Dip the onion rings in the buttermilk mixture, allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl, and then dredge in the crumb coating, turning to coat evenly. When the crumb mixture is low, add the reserved crumb mixture to the dish to coat the remaining onion rings. Transfer the coated rings to a large plate or platter.
  3. Pour 3 tablespoons of the oil onto each of 2 rimmed baking sheets. Place the baking sheets in the oven and heat just until smoking, about 8 minutes. Tilt the heated sheets to coat evenly with the oil.
  4. Lay the onion rings out in a single layer on the oiled baking sheets. Bake, flipping the onion rings and rotating the pans halfway through baking, until golden brown on both sides, about 15 minutes total. Transfer to a paper towel-lined rack briefly before serving.

    love onion rings! on burgers, on salads, on sandwiches, or just on the side… I could eat them every day if it would wreck the waist line!

    These look really tasty, our family loves onion rings but I have never made them at home. Will have to add to my must try list.

    I love onion rings! I can’t wait to try this recipe in hopes that they turn out tasting as good as yours look.

    I agree with your husband….ketchup is needed (with some hot sauce added in, too!)
