If onion rings are at the top of your "foods that I love to eat" list but at the bottom of your "foods that are good for me" list, then broiled Crunchy Onion Rings are a menu must.
Quick and easy to make, these crisp onion rings are dipped in egg, rolled in bread crumbs, then placed under the broiler on a pan treated with either butter or a non-stick cooking spray. Broiling not only results in a more nutritious snack than those that are deep-fat fried, but it also eliminates the lengthy preparation and clean up required with frying.
Crunchy Onion Rings are an easy way to give a meal an exciting start. Serve them as a tempting tidbit before a family dinner or as a cocktail party hors d'oeuvre. However, they need not be limited to appetizer fare. As a fun change of pace from rice or potatoes, serve them as an accompaniment to steak, hamburgers and hot dogs or a variety of other entrees.
Hot Horseradish Dip, made with nonfat dry milk, is a zesty complement for these rings.
