Low Fat Baked Onion Rings

skinnytaste.com is an amazing blog and I am so glad I found out about it! This is also from Gina's blog, along with the last like 4 things I just posted and these are fantastic. Chris loves onion rings with a nice juicy burger, but since I have been dieting we have not been eating greasy fried rings. But, when I stumbled upon this recipe I knew I had to give it a shot. Honestly, Chris was skeptical, but when he tasted these babies he was in heaven. These are so good. Be careful though, they are so addicting. I am glad the serving size is huge, but I again had to practice self control on these babies. Perfect with a burger these are guilt free and delciious! Make them a lot! Trust me.

2 1/4 cups low fat buttermilk
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup Italian seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup crushed corn flake crumbs
salt to taste
olive oil baking spray (I just drizzled Olive oil over them)

Place slices of onion in a shallow dish. Pour the buttermilk over the top and let them soak for about 1 - 2 hours, refrigerated.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.

Combine panko, bread crumbs and corn flakes in a large dish, season with salt.

Dip each soaked onion ring into the crumb mixture; coat well. Place rings onto two cookie sheets. Lightly spray with oil. Bake about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
