Happy good for you onion rings

I haven't had onion rings in a long time, the last time was probably at Rutt's-Hut which if you are even in northern NJ and don't have a pre-existing heart or cholesterol problem, you should totally go! They were even featured on a PBS show about the best hot dogs in America... anyway they have delicious totally BAD FOR YOU onion rings and hotdogs.

yeah that is a total heart attack on a plate.... but it's a tasty heart attack....

I was craving some onion rings but wasn't craving the bad after effects of eating all that grease... So I went to the kitchen to whip up some tasty good for you onion rings. AND THEY WERE DELICIOUS!!! I was so happy with how they came out, I will totally be making these again!

mmm doesn't require a double bi-pass

Happy good for you onion rings
1 large vidallia onion
1/2 cup skim milk
1/4 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/8 to 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
oregano, black pepper, cyan pepper to taste (about 1/4 tsp each for me)

You may need to make more bread mix depending on how big of an onion it is and how much coating you like.

Preheat oven to 350.
Slice onion into rings and let soak in skim milk while mixing dry ingredients.
In a large bowl mix together bread crumbs, flour, and spices.
Using a fork take rings out of milk and toss in crumb mixture (a few at a time not all at once), shake off excess and lay on an olive oil sprayed cookie sheet. Do not place rings too close together or they will come out soggy.
Before placing in the oven lightly spray with olive oil.
Bake for 10 minutes, remove and flip rings, spray again with olive oil then place back in the oven for 10 more minutes or until nice and brown.

Note: for a spicier version add some franks red hot to the skim milk for some added kick! Also the thinner you slice the rings the crispier they will be (you may need to reduce cook time depending on your oven)

PS. I'd just like to point out to Neva that these are Neva friendly no nuts or seafood!!!!! Hooray!!!
