Oven-Fried Onion Rings

oven-fried onion rings with potato chips coating, recipe with step by step pictures

Onion rings, anyone?

And what about some oven-fried ones?

Oh, you need to know some more about them to be able to decide.

Alrighty, I’ll be glad to tell you.

These onion rings are crunchy, flavorful and very delicious. The tempting potato chips coating, full of spicy flavor, is a nice contrast to the tender and sweet onions. And since the chips have been fried, they give the onion rings that unique deep-fried taste even though there’s no deep-frying involved.

So, what do you think now?

Are you with me?

If so, here’s the stairway to heaven…no, no… I meant – here’s the step-by-step recipe…

1. Preheat the oven to 390 F (200 C).

2. In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup (35 grams) flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper and 1/4 tsp cayenne. Minus the spoons.

Whisk until a smooth batter is formed.

10. Place the rings on the hot baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes, then flip each ring over before baking for another 8 minutes.

Since you will probably have more rings than you can fit in one baking sheet you might need to work in batches.

  1. Has anyone tried this with the Lay’s Light Potato Chips which are fat-free? That would definitely cut down on the fat and would be even more guilt free!

  3. Oh my goodness, I made these a few nights ago and they are insanely good. Very decadent!

    I ran out of crushed chips before I ran out of batter and onions – I think I should have crushed them even more finely. And my batter was pretty thick, I probably should have thinned it out a bit (maybe with milk?).

    But overall, amazing, will be making again for a treat… probably sometime soon 🙂

  4. Made these tonight, Absolutely Amazing soo good, I also made a coppy cat dressing like outback steak house!!! Highly recommend

  5. i tried it and it tasted yummy! However, i had trouble coating the crushed chips onto the onion rings. May I know why did it happen?

  6. Does anyone know if these can be made with gluten free flour? My son has celiac disease so I couldn’t use regular flour.

  7. These did not work for me at all! The crumbs got all stuck to the tongs as the batter ended up mixed in after the first few. The clumping of the crumbs meant the rings didn’t end up coated. The ones that I did get in the oven (I had dumb the second half because the coating was so gobbed up and I was frustrated) didn’t crisp up at all and then the flavor of the potato chips with the onion was really weird. These didn’t come out anything like the picture and I followed the directions and the recipe 100%!

  9. These were great! The crust adhered very well. I had to make a change and sub sour cream for the yogurt batter but it worked fine after I added just a splash of milk to loosen it up. I’m sure it was my fault not the recipe. Mayo would probably work, too. Really terrific recipe. I’m posting it on Fb in a cooking forum I belong to. Of course, I will link back to your wonderful blog to give credit where it’s due!

    Peace, peeps! <3
