Oven Baked Onion Rings

Course Side Dish
Servings 4


  • Cooking spray
  • 2 c. baked potato chips
  • 1/2 t. cayenne
  • 1 c. lowfat buttermilk
  • 1/2 c. plus 2 T. flour
  • 1/2 t. Salt
  • 1/4 t. fresh ground black pepper
  • 1-2 large Vidalia onions peeled


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Spray a baking sheet lightly with oil and set aside.
  • Place potato chips in the bowl of a food processor and process into crumbs, about 20 seconds. Transfer to a shallow bowl, add cayenne and set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine buttermilk, 2 T. flour, salt and pepper; set aside.
  • Slice onions into 1/2-inch slices and separate into rings, keeping only large, whole rings (reserve rest of onion for other uses). You should have about 12 to 14 rings.
  • Place the remaining flour in a resealable plastic bag, then add onions and shake to coat.
  • Dip onions one at a time into the buttermilk mixture, then dip into potato chip crumbs and place on baking sheet.
  • Spray with cooking spray evenly over rings and bake for 20 minutes or until coating is crisp. Serve immediately.
