Low Fat Baked Onion Rings

Cook Time: 12 mins
Course: Appetizer, Side Dish
Cuisine: American


  • 1 medium onion (sliced into 1/4 inch rings)
  • 2 1/4 cups low fat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup crushed corn flake crumbs
  • salt to taste
  • olive oil baking spray (I used my Misto)


  • Place slices of onion in a shallow dish.
  • Pour the buttermilk over the top and let them soak for about 1 - 2 hours, refrigerated.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  • Combine panko, bread crumbs and corn flakes and place half of the crumbs in a large dish, season with salt. Reserve the rest for when the first batch is used up.
  • This should help avoid clumping and they should stick better to the onions.
  • Dip each soaked onion ring into the crumb mixture; coat well.
  • Place rings onto two cookie sheets.
  • Lightly spray with oil.
  • Bake about 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve immediately.
