Lord of the Onion Rings
- 1 large onion
- 1/2 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, or more to taste
- 1/8 tsp. onion powder, or more to taste
- 1/8 tsp. salt, or more to taste
- Black pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
- Optional dip: Vivi's Original Sauce Classic Carnival Mustard
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Slice the ends off the onion and remove its outer layer. Cut onion into 1/2-inch-wide slices and separate
into rings. Set aside.
Using a blender or food processor, grind cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Season crumbs with
the spices and transfer to a plate or bowl. Set aside.
Fill a small bowl with egg substitute. Prepare a baking sheet (or two) by spraying with nonstick spray. Set
Pop-Up Tip! For the following step, use tongs or a fork to dip the rings into the egg substitute and cereal
crumbs -- it'll keep your fingers from getting eggy & crumb-covered. (Don't pierce the rings with the fork;
just balance them on it.)
One at a time, dunk each ring in egg substitute, give it a shake to remove any excess, and then coat it in
the seasoned crumbs. Evenly place rings on the baking sheet(s).
Bake in the oven until outsides are crispy and insides are soft, 20 - 25 minutes, carefully flipping rings
over about halfway through. Serve with mustard, if using. Enjoy!
MAKES 1 SERVING
HG FYI: You'll only need about 1/4 cup egg substitute to coat your rings, but using 1/2 cup makes it
soooo much easier.
