Paleo Oven Crusted Onion Rings with Paleo Bread™ Almond
Ingredients: (Gluten Free & Grain Free Paleo Recipe)
1 medium to large sweet onion, sliced into 1/4″ rings
2 organic cage free eggs (or 1/2 cup egg substitute)
3 tablespoons almond milk
2 – 3 slices Paleo Bread-Almond, toasted until very crispy
1/2 teaspoon organic onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika (or enough to color the Paleo Bread-Almond crumbs)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil and brush lightly with about 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil. In a medium shallow bowl, beat eggs and cream or almond milk together; season egg wash with salt and pepper to taste. Add the sliced onion rings to the egg mixture; toss and set aside and let them soak in it a bit while you make the bread crumb mixture.
In a small food processor, tear the toasted and crisped Paleo Bread-Almond into pieces and place into the processor. Pulse until pulverized into a fine bread crumb mixture. The bread crumbs have to be thoroughly dry to stick to the onion rings. If they need to be dried out further, spread in a dry non-stick skillet on medium heat for a few minutes, tossing until dry, being careful not to brown them.
In a shallow bowl or plate, mix Paleo Bread-Almond bread crumbs, salt and pepper, to taste, onion powder and paprika together; mix well until thoroughly combined.
Take onion rings out, one or two at a time and place in the bread crumb mixture, pressing and turning over with a fork until well coated on both sides. Place on a lightly oiled foil covered baking sheet in a single layer, careful not to touch each other. Place in oven and bake 7-8 minutes; flip and continue baking another 7-8 minutes or until golden brown and done. Remove from oven and sprinkle with salt, if desired. Serve immediately.
