Baked Creole Onion Rings

No, they are not deep-fried onion rings. Face it, you can't beat deep-fried onion rings. But, sometimes you have to do them a tad bit healthier. Like these baked Creole rings.

Panko bread crumbs are a wonderful thing. They make everything good and crunchy. Throw in some spicy Creole seasoning and these rings are actually pretty good. Almost addicting, really.

The original recipe came from Pam's Midwest Kitchen Korner.

Printable Recipe


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning, divided (or more, to taste)
  • 2 large egg whites, beaten lightly
  • 2 cups Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced into thick rings (or 2 onions if they are smaller)

1. Preheat your oven to 450 F.

2. Spray two baking sheets with non-stick spray.

3. Arrange 3 bowls in a row. In the first bowl mix the flour and half of the Creole seasoning. In the second bowl place the egg whites. Finally, in the third bowl combine the bread crumbs and the remaining Creole seasoning.

4. Separate the onion into individual rings. Dip them into the flour mixture first. Shake off the excess.

5. Next, dip the rings into the egg whites. Shake off the excess.

6. Last, dip the rings into the bread crumbs.

7. Arrange rings on the baking sheets and spray lightly with non-stick spray. Bake for 6 minutes

8. Gently flip the rings and bake another 6-10 minutes or until golden brown.
