Baked Onions with A Sour Cream Herb Dip

Another baked goodie of deliciousness. The onion ring. In this case, the onion wedge? Looked like a wedge when I cut it. Or onion petal? Whatever the shape may be, I think these are a little easier to eat than a ring. Scoops up the dip or sauce better, too. But I like both. I would have done rings, but at the risk of cutting off one of my fingers with old and slightly dull knives is not a good idea. A mandolin cutter is what I need. Or sharper knives. So wedges/petals it was.

To go along with the baked goods, I also made a sour cream herb dip. Looks like thousand island dressing but a little thicker. Recipe follows the baked onion section. The pinkish color comes from ketchup. Yes, ketchup. You read right. That red stuff kids love to cover their hotdogs with. The condiment that some wanted to qualify as a vegetable back in the 80's. (What were they thinking?) Anyway, it's good with chips, too. Maybe some Roasted Garlic Tortilla Chips.

Bake Onions

1 small sweet onion (quartered and separated)
1 egg (beaten)

Preheat oven to 350˚F

Breading method: 3 containers 1-flour, 2-egg with milk beaten and season with a little salt, 3-Panko crumbs.

Dip and coat each piece of onion in the flour, then egg mixture, then panko in that order.

Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.

Bake for 20-25min until lightly browned. Flip half way through.

dang jenn you are baking all of my fried favorites to perfection...

Ozge said...

I like how you bring healthy versions to otherwise would have been more oily food! In other words I'm on the same tune with Mr.Doggy's comment.

Diana said...

I know this is odd, but I've never really had an onion ring! I had an aversion to onions when I was younger, so never was interested in trying one. These look really great though -- especially with that dip!

girlichef said...

You know, the petal is a great idea...dipping! I really never dip my onions rings...but I bet if I made them in petal form, I would! Awesome, thanks...these look great btw!

Justin said...

ooh, I think I've got some panko crumbs in the cupboard. this looks good.

The Duo Dishes said...

Baking the onions is what we need right now. No more fried foods...although we love fried foods. :) That dip is a keeper!

Chow and Chatter said...

looks lovely very creative and healthier than the fried version

Jenn said...

doggy & Ozge: Just trying to make our lives healthier with our favs. =)

Diana: Awe. Maybe this version will cure your aversion.

girlichef: Scoopage is the key. =)

Justin: Well, get crackin'. LOL

DuoDishes: The dip is really good with this.

Chow and Chatter: Definitely!

Pam said...

Onion rings are on my top five favorite food list but I don't eat them often because they are fried. I WILL be making these soon - they are PERFECT. The sauce sounds really good too.

Lori Lynn said...

I like the look of the onion wedge, and pink sauce too!

pigpigscorner said...

Such a healthy yet delicious treat! At a glance, I thought they were fried shell pasta.

Tangled Noodle said...

Onion Petals not only sound appetizing but it's a great descriptor of how much lighter and healthier these are compared to deep fried rings. This has been printed out for immediate use . . . !

Jenn said...

pigpigscorner: They do look like it. Don't they. =)

Tangled Noodle: Sweet!
