“If I ordered these in a restaurant and they tasted like these, I would be happy.” and “I really hope you are going to make these again” … when those are the phrases I heard from Rich when he was enjoying these, I knew that I had a winner!
I personally love Onion Rings (seriously, who doesn’t) but hate the fat that I know they are soaked with. The fact that I knew (and added) every single ingredient that went into these made me enjoy their awesome flavor even more!! For this whole thing (serves 2, in our house) there was probably 500 calories (whatever comes from the breadcrumbs & the one egg) – so you get all the flavor without all the sacrifice!
Problem: this is one of those recipes I had sitting around for a while (and bought the onions a few weeks ago too) but life just gets in the way. Why is that a problem you ask? That is a problem because we had a few months that these could have been in our lives that they weren’t. As you can tell – these are a great healthy treat and so much better than the alternative, SO don’t wait to make these like I did and enjoy today, or whenever you want a healthy classic side dish like Onion Rings (think burgers and grilling [we plan to try these on the grill actually: right on the grill OR on foil, t.b.d.] and sandwiches and so on)!!
