Gluten Free Baked Onion Rings Recipe

My long lost love when I went gluten free was beautifully breaded foods. Actually it was more of foods that I could enjoy at carnivals and from street vendors.

I miss those deep fried foods.

I hate frying food at home, have I ever mentioned that? I do. I do not like to fry anything at home, so the only time I really ate deep-fried foods is when we were eating out. Now though, that is hard to find when you are gluten free, safe foods that are deep-fried are rare.

The good thing is I have found that most deep-fried foods can be baked at home and not only are they healthier that way but many times they taste just as good.

I intended to make some deep fried onion rings, but I had a change of heart. I just could not bring myself to deep-fry that beautiful vegetable.

I decided to go with an alternative, a healthier, baked alternative.

These onion rings are absolutely delicious! Yes, I could still tell they were not deep-fried but they were so much better, plus I felt like I could eat them without that bloated, just ate a batch of grease feeling!

These baked onion rings were so simple to put together, the hardest part in the process is simply getting the breadcrumbs to stick well. I found the easiest way to do it is to pat the breading onto the onion rings. Also if you miss a few spots it is okay, they still turn out well.

We paired ours with dipping sauce, which here in Oklahoma we are all about homemade ranch dressing, so that’s what we used. They turned out to be the perfect side dish for our dinner and snack during the day. Plus, they did not break the calorie bank!
