These are the Rings that Frodo was looking for
Ooooooooh yeah, baby! Legit, delicious, crispy onion rings are no longer a thing of dreams. Once they were only spoken of in legend... mentioned in fables, along with Unicorns and honest Politicians... But, Low Point, Low Calorie Onion Rings have jumped from the realm of myth, into your kitchen. I had to get a little creative with the breading though. Rather than requiring you to go buy a giant tub of expensive protein powders and organic Free-Range Tibetan Bee Polen, all that you'll need is good ol' rice krispies. A lot of folks said I should use crushed bran flakes, which IS a good option, however, in equal amounts, those flakes, crushed, are higher in points than crushed rice cereal. Not by much... but I'm the Ebanezar Scrooge of points. With this recipe I was able to make a large 11"x22" pan FULL of 20 large onion rings, for only 4 points in total. Calling that a "MACHO" 2 servings, each half of that tray, 10 large onion rings in this case, came to 2 points. Your total onion rings per serving will vary depending on how many rings YOU are able to make, but I was able to make and bread 20 of them. This recipe only has 4 ingredient points. You can half the recipe and EASILY use it to bread 2 thick chicken breasts for 1 point each. I know that I already have my "low point breading" in my low point cooking guide..... but this recipe is better.
The above linked, free file, is NOT found in the pages of my Low Point Cooking Guide, that you can download for free here on my website. This recipe is one of the first for the Appetizers section, of the upcoming "Salad Dressings, Dips & Appetizers" download/book, that I'm starting on, that will eventually be out after the cupcakes and cake download/book is finished. Let's get these appetizers rolling.
