Baked Onion Rings

Is anybody else jonsing for Breaking Bad?!  I've been lamenting and going through withdrawals.  Usually in the winter months we catch up on all the series we've missed out on during the busier and warmer months, AKA soccer season.  I've been trying to get into the new American Horror Story: Coven;  it is great and all, my problem is that I can't stay awake!!  Seriously annoying.

For the season finale of Breaking Bad we got all super-nerd, and had ourselves a Breaking Bad themed meal.  We had Chicken Heisenburgers, served with Onion Frings, and Blue Jello for dessert.  It was glorious.  I completely forgot that I had this Baked Onion Fring recipe to share, until I started reminiscing.  Sigh.  Awesome series recommendations welcome!

Baked Onion Rings

1 large sweet onion
1/3 cup flour
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk or plain milk
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup seasoned Panko
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp dried Italian herbs

Preheat oven to 425F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking oil. Slice onion into large rings, about 3/4 inch in width.
In a shallow dish, whisk together the batter ingredients (flour, milk, egg).
In another shallow dish, whisk together the coating ingredients (cornmeal, breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, salt, garlic powder, and herbs).
With a fork, dip an onion ring into the batter, immersing, so it gets covered in batter.  Transfer it to the coating mixture and toss it around a bit.  Place onion rings on prepared baking sheets and repeat for the rest.
Bake for about 18 minutes, flipping once halfway through.  These are best served immediately along side a beautiful burger, or wholesome sandwich, or on their own with your favourite dip!
