Onion rings are a type of breaded and fried snack. And that, optionally, they are an alternative to replace the classic fries in hamburgers, hot dogs, and other fast foods. It is also common to serve them as snacks in bars and breweries to accompany drinks.
Let’s talk about the recipe:
Although there are several ways to make onion rings, today I propose this one. In which, it is a simple recipe that does not require great difficulty. In addition, the ingredients are just few and easily accessible in any market. What’s more, you can change or replace any of them, either by pleasure or need, without inconvenience. And best of all, they are baked!
About the ingredients:
The onions that are chosen have to be of a considerable size. Because at the time of cutting them to obtain the onion rings, they must be a good size. Once the onions have been cut crosswise, the rings are carefully separated and do not break.
The hearts or centers of the onions are discarded because they are too small and are generally not used. But they are saved and used in any other recipe that requires this ingredient. Therefore, they are passed through flour, then removing the excess and from there through seasoned beaten egg.
It is important to use condiments to obtain a tasty result, otherwise it will not be. Therefore, do not hesitate to use a good amount of them, whether they are dehydrated or fresh. Similarly, mustard can also be added to this mixture, which will give it a touch of distinction.
Finally, it is breaded with breadcrumbs. Alternative ingredients exist for this recipe. For example, those who must follow a gluten-free diet can replace flour with cornstarch, brown rice flour, etc. And the breadcrumbs for brown rice batter, gluten-free batter or other gluten-free product suitable for baking.
The cooking of these onion rings have an estimated cooking time of 5-10 minutes or until golden brown. On this occasion, to make them light and healthy, vegetable spray was used. Although you can also use sunflower, olive or some other oil according to preference or availability.
