Barbecued Baked Onion Rings

Before I had even gone to the website this recipe was hosted on, I knew it was going to be amazing just because of the name. What an ingenious idea!!! Ingenious it was. We tried these today and boy they made us happy. So good! We also had them with an egg salad sandwich thank you. :) Who doesn't love onion rings, and who doesn't love BBQ? The other bonus? Baked not fried! Go check out her website, see her wonderful photography, and you'll be drooling. :)

Barbecue Baked Onion Rings
adapted from Recipe Girl

1 cup barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rays)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
3 cups panko bread crumbs
2 medium to large sweet onions, sliced into 1/2-inch rings

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place baking sheets in the oven and let those preheat too. In a medium bowl, whisk together barbecue sauce, eggs and flour. Place bread crumbs in a separate bowl. Using tongs (or your fingers) dip onion slice in the barbecue sauce mixture, shake the excess off and then dunk on all sides into the bread crumbs. Lay on a plate, or something, while you finish the rest of the onion rings. Repeat until all onion slices have been dunked. Remove hot baking sheets from the oven and spray lightly with cooking spray. Move coated onions to hot baking sheets. Spray the coated onions lightly with cooking spray. Bake for about 6 minutes, or until golden, then use tongs to turn each onion ring over. Spray the other side of the onions with cooking spray and bake for an additional 5 to 7 minutes. Watch closely to make sure they crumbs are not browning too quickly or burning. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

Serves 4 to 6
