Forget fried onion rings and fire up your oven to make better-for-you, crispy baked onion rings instead. These Vidalia onion rings tossed with a combination of paprika, ground almonds, corn cereal and ground flax seeds before being baked to crispy perfection. I bet you’ve never had an onion ring quite like this one! There’s no bread or gluten in this recipe, so they’re not just healthy, they’re perfect for those who can’t eat gluten. Make these for a summer BBQ or a weeknight dinner at home.
