Crispy Baked Onion Rings (aka Cooking Actress Onion Rings)

Crispy Baked Onion Rings

Last month, when some of my fellow food bloggers and I participated in Brunch Week, we had the good fortune to work with a number of terrific foods sponsors and sample their products.  So, while it might not sound all that exciting to get a bag of Vidalia onions in the mail, to foodies like us, it kind of is.

I also imagine that most people, when faced with a bag of onions, just store them and use them in any recipe that calls for onions.  But apparently food bloggers need to announce the event on Facebook and solicit onion recipes from their cooking friends (yes, yes, I'm so guilty!)

And that is how a rather long FaceBook thread started revolving around this bag of sweet onions.  I got lots of suggestions including one for a bacon onion jam which seriously needs to happen here soon.  But the one that caught my eye was from my friend Kayle who writes The Cooking Actress blog.  Her baked onion rings looked so good, I made them that same day.  And a couple of days later I made them again, and I posted a photo, and then several other friends made them because they saw my photo and posted their own photos and, finally, Kayle herself re-made them because we'd all given her a serious craving for her own recipe.  Who knew onions could be so much fun.

Normally this is the point where I would give you the recipe but since I literally did not change one single thing from Kayle's directions, I'm just going to send you over there to get the original recipe straight from the girl who started this whole thing.  So, get yourself some large onions, Vidalia or otherwise, and start cooking.  You're about to become obsessed.  Enjoy!
