"It's hard to bake an onion ring as good as a deep-fried version. These are pretty good, so check it out! This makes a very crunchy, easy, no-muss, no-fuss onion ring."

panko bread crumbs, or more if needed
salt and ground black pepper to taste
For a baked version of onion rings these were very good. I did add seasoning to the flour, egg white and panko crumbs. Also, I found that using the convection setting on the oven helped to crisp them up really well.
These were really good for being baked. My flour didn't want to stick well and so I had only partially breaded rings when they were done. That didn't seem to hurt anything, though. They had enough coating to have a good crunch and with less coating, the onion flavor came through nicely. Also less coating meant less calories. I added some powdered garlic and onion to the flour mix. Great recipe!
