Desperate For Some Gluten-Free Onion Rings!

Recommended Posts

Suggestions anyone?

I don't cook, so making my own is not a good idea!

Thanks,

Jenn

We need to get you cooking! ;) Actually, I've been going through the same thing, and I don't miss much, to be honest. I know you said you don't cook, BUT...there might be an easy baking solution. Hungry Girl has a low cal onion ring recipe using Fiber One crumbs, but you could use Glutino breadcrumbs (or probably any other ones out there). If you followed her recipe but got rid of the gluten, that might give you at least something similar. http://www.hungry-girl.com/newsletters/raw/589 Couldn't hurt to check it out, and it looks super easy. If you look around on her site, she has several other recipes for them as well.

Supposedly Trader Joe's carries some gluten-free baked onion rings if you have one nearby,.....I do not.

Here is a decent looking recipe in case you change your mind. Personally you are going to have to start cooking some unless you plan on going without a number of things. Also the prepared gluten-free items are quite expensive.

Baking onion rings is very easy, it's true! :) Just be sure to season the flour very well prior to baking because some recipes exclude seasoning. You don't want bland rings! Some good seasonings include Smoked Paprika, Cayenne, Herbes de Provence and so on. Plus I love to sprinkle mine as soon as they are out of the oven with crunchy coarse sea salt.

Hey Love2travel?

This sounds great! I have silly questions. Do you use any oil? on the pan? In the batter? And what temp would you bake them? High 400 or normal 350? I have never thought of this. If it really works, heck we could be doing this with our other veggies too. Like now I'm thinking about mushrooms, cauliflower...yum. I stopped frying ya know due to the digestion thing, but I love breaded cauliflower and miss it bad!

Any help might get me and the OP cooking! Thanks!

Without cooking it's going to be difficult to get gluten-free onion rings. I'm sure they exist somewhere but they will be pricey and hard to find.

You could eat some Funyuns to see if that helps with your craving. Last I read they were gltuen free, but do double check that as ingredient can change.

Chop some large slices of onions and dredge them in Pamela's Pancake Mix - Batter and deep fry. Take them out to drain on a paper towel and lightly salt.

....pretty darn close!! :D

That does look pretty easy--gonna give it a try :)

Thanks!

Let us know how it turns out! I have done something similar to make oven fried chicken gluten free and it was great--couldn't even tell it was gluten free.

So funny you should mention that--we just had oven fried chicken tonight for dinner. :D The onion rings shouldn't be much different.
