CRISPY PANKO-TOPPED BAKED ONIONS

July 8, 2013

I love a good onion ring. Crunchy with a hint of sweet. This recipe has even managed to get rid of the o-ring’s only fatal flaws. First, that thing where you take a bite and then the entire onion slips out leaving only a hollow ring of breading. And second, that they’re quite unhealthy. (Or is that one of it’s strengths?) Both problems fixed.

Are you enticed?

    Oh. My. Goodness.
    I made these yesterday and they were so good! I’m going to make them again this weekend. Thanks! I enjoy reading your blog and I also enjoy your book list. I think you had Hole in your Holiness on your list which we read as a women’s group at church too. I did enjoy it. Take care and keep it up!

    Oh wow!!!!!! I can’t wait to try these! Due to the drought we’ve been getting more onions in our CSA boxes. Will try on Saturday with a tomato pie!

    • Yum! Glad I could be of a little help. Hope they don’t disappoint!

      love,
