Hungry Girl Onion Rings (AKA Lord of the Onion Rings)
Updated: Aug 12
Here’s another go-around with healthy food and counting calories. These are from the Hungry Girl Cookbook with a couple of modifications. Overall, they were good. Definitely not a fast food onion ring, but Josh actually said that he thought these were better than fast food onion rings.
I’m really loving these Hungry Girl recipes. Be on the look-out for more of them for a while. Hungry Girl has recipes for things that we love, but in a healthier version. We’re really looking forward to trying some of them out.
Hungry Girl Onion Rings (AKA Lord of the Onion Rings) Makes 1 serving – 153 calories per serving
1 large onion
1/2 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
Dash of salt
Optional: additional salt, black pepper, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.
I also used 1 tsp. reduced fat grated Parmesan cheese and 1 tsp. Hidden Valley Ranch Powder.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut the ends off of the onion and remove the outer layer. Cut onion into 1/2 inch wide slices, and separate into rings.
Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Pour Fiber One “breadcrumbs” into a small dish and mix in salt and any optional spices you like.
Next, fill a small bowl with egg substitute. Coat onion rings one by one with egg substitute and then dip and cover in the Fiber One breadcrumbs.
Place coated onion rings on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping half-way through baking.
