Oven-Fried Onion Rings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup ( 35 grams ) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1 cup ( 250 ml ) plain yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup ( 70 grams ) plus 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups ( 200 grams ) finely crushed potato chips
  • 2 larger onions
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • salt

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 390 F.
  • Combine 1/4 cup (35 grams) flour, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp cayenne and 1/2 tsp salt in a large bowl. Minus the spoons.
  • Mix the eggs, yogurt, 1/2 cup ( 70 grams ) plus 2 tbsp flour in another medium bowl.
  • Whisk until smooth.
  • Smash the chips finely and place them in a bowl too.
  • Peel the onions and cut them into 1/2 inch (1 cm) rings.
  • Use a piece of parchment to cover a baking sheet.
  • Drizzle with 3 tbsp vegetable oil.
  • Pop it into the hot oven for 8 minutes – or until the oil just starts to smoke.
  • Toss the onion rings in the flour mixture.
  • Dip each ring into the batter.
  • Let the excess batter dribble off a little.
  • Coat the rings with the crushed potato chips.
  • 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.
  • Sprinkle with salt while the rings are still hot.
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
