  1. Cut onions into 1/2-in. slices; separate into rings and place in a bowl. Cover with ice water; soak for 30 minutes. Drain.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy. In another bowl, combine the bread crumbs, thyme, salt, paprika and pepper. Divide the crumb mixture among three large resealable plastic bags. Dip a third of the onions in the egg whites; add a few rings at a time to crumb mixture and shake to coat. Place on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Repeat with remaining onions and crumb mixture. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp.

The taste is fine, but the breading didn't stay on. In no rush to make again.

I modified several steps of this recipe..I chose to not use the resealable bags, but instead used bowls. I did not soak the onions in ice water (didn't see the point). I dipped in egg mixture an...

i'm a HUGE fan of fried onion rings but this baked version was excellent!!! and not greasy at all. i also didn't use the bag method - just dipped them in a bowl with bread crumbs mixed with garl...

Great baked onion ring, satisfied my onion ring craving! I used bowls instead of plastic bags but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The breading stuck to the onions just fine. I think pr...

I agree with other reviewers who say that the trick is to beat the egg whites to stiff-peak stage- it helps the crumbs stick better. Also, i went with the bowl method instead of a bag and got gr...

Breading problem - Like other reviewers, the breading didn't seem to want to stick on the rings. We ate them anyway, and they were okay, but probably won't use this recipe again. Is there a tric...

VERY good. A heathy alternative to a deep fried favorite. I added dome different spices and used some baking powder and flour in the bread crumbs. They came out crunchy and delicious. I also ...
