Healthy Crunchy Onion Rings
2 large onions
4 cups (4 oz) reduced fat kettle chips
2 cups panko bread crumbs
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp smoked paprika
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Slice onions into 1/2-inch thick rings. Season the onion rings with salt and pepper.
In a food processor, pulse together the panko and kettle chips and transfer to a shallow dish. Season with salt, pepper, and paprika.
Place the flour in a second shallow dish. In a third shallow dish, whisk together the egg and buttermilk.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. Spray the wire rack with non-stick spray.
Dip each onion ring in flour, then the egg/buttermilk mixture, and lastly in the chips/panko to coat. Continue this process with each of the rings. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden.
Yield: 8 servings (about 12 rings each).
