Crispy Onion Rings
- Total Time
These super-crispy, baked onion rings are a dead ringer (pun intended) for the deep-fried variety. A touch of cayenne adds nice heat.

egg white(s)1 large
low-fat milk⅓ cup(s)
all-purpose flour¼ cup(s)
onion powder¾ tsp
table salt½ tsp, or to taste
cayenne pepper⅛ tsp, or to taste
uncooked onion(s)1 large, yellow, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds, separated into rings
- Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a large, rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
- Spread cornflake crumbs on a large plate. In a shallow bowl or pie plate, whisk together egg white, milk, flour, onion powder, salt and cayenne pepper until blended.
- In batches, dip onion rings in egg mixture (letting excess drip off) and then dredge in cornflake crumbs, turning to coat both sides; place in a single layer on prepared pan.
- Coat onion rings with cooking spray and bake, turning once, until onion rings are golden brown, about 12 minutes; sprinkle with additional salt and pepper before serving, if desired. Yields about 8 onion rings per serving.
