Low-Fat Oven Fried Onion Rings
From the kitchen of The Family's Kathy Schmidt
non-stick spray coating
1/2 cup fine, dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons margarine -- melted
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper -- optional
2 medium sweet onions -- sliced 1/4" thick, separated into rings
2 egg whites -- slightly beaten
Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick coating.
In a small mixing bowl stir together the bread crumbs, melted margarine, salt and red pepper.
Spread crumb mixture on a sheet of waxed paper.
Using a fork, dip the onion rings in the egg whites, then in the bread crumbs.
Arrange the coated onion rings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake at 450 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, until the onions are tender and the coating is crisp and golden.
Salt and serve! (Try Lawry’s or garlic salt for an extra burst of flavor!)
