Recipe of the Week
Scott, Emma, and I devoured these Healthy Onion Rings while watching the Bucks game last night. I made them in our Air Fryer, and they were absolutely delicious! They were light, crispy, and flavorful.
2 large onions, sliced into 1” thick rings
½ cup cassava flour
2 large eggs, beaten
½ cup Italian Breadcrumbs (I used gluten-free panko)
EVOO (I used avocado oil)
Separate the sliced onion layers into single rings. Wash them, shake off excess water, and set aside. This will help the cassava flour to stick to the rings. Place the flour and breadcrumbs on separate plates. Put the beaten eggs in a shallow bowl.
Coat the onion rings with cassava flour, dip them in the eggs, and coat them with breadcrumbs. Make sure to coat the insides. Place them on a platter, and when all the rings are coated, cover the platter and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F.
Scatter the onion rings in the basket, one over the other. Set the timer for 6 minutes. At 3 minutes, spritz the onion rings with EVOO, and make sure all the rings are being cooked evenly.
Note: The trick to getting the flour and breadcrumbs to stick to the onion rings is to keep the dry ingredients completely dry without clumps that may form with wet hands or tongs. So, do not use the same hand or tongs for the eggs and the flour. (Or, just wash your hands often, like I did.)
