Randy loves these onion rings, so he is in charge of preparation. I was 8 feet away and still crying! But no matter how strong the onions, these always turn out yummy. Cooking seems to mellow out even the sharpest onion.
Baked Onion Rings
Slice two whole large onions into about 1/2" slices. Separate the rings and place in large mixing bowl. For every two onions, use two lightly beaten eggs; pour eggs over the onions and mix with a large spoon. Sprinkle about 2 tsp. garlic powder over all. (You can experiment with other spices; barbecue blends are good.) Then sprinkle about 1/2 cup purchased dried bread crumbs over and stir lightly.
Line a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray foil with non-stick coating. Place onion rings in single layer on foil.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 1/2 an hour. Just enough time to grill your steaks.
We used a Butcher's Rub on our steaks that we purchased in Charleston from The Spice and Tea Exchange. Very peppery and spicy. Yum!
