Lord of the Onion Rings

The Lord of the Rings (2001)

From J.R.R.Tolkien's trilogy we spotlight the Oscar Awarded film "The Lord of the Rings." This is storytelling at its very best. Beautiful film with important messages for all of us. Our recipe for Lord of the Onion Rings was our quest (as Frodo Baggins was for the one true ring) for a great tasting and beautiful onion ring that could be done easily by home cooks. "The Lord of the Rings" film and our recipe for Lord of the Onion Rings are both the chosen ones.

3/4 cup flour
1 egg, beaten
1 large yellow onion
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Combine the ingredients below in a mixing bowl

1 cup Panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
1/2 teaspoon season salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon Thyme

Wash, peel outer skin of onion, and cut off top and bottom (about an inch). Cut across onion to create rings (about 1/2 wide).

Place flour in mixing bowl, and dust rings with flour. Beat egg in a mixing, then dip and cover rings in egg. Roll each ring through Panko mixture until coated inside and out.

Preheat oil in skillet on med high heat. Cook rings about 30 seconds on each side, or until golden brown. They will brown quickly, please don't leave skillet.

Remove from skillet and place on paper towel.

Serves 4

Combine ingredients below in bowl and mix well
Serve with onion rings
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons low-fat mayo
