This is a great side dish for 2 or a snack for one. It’s simple and great tasting, swapping the batter for a breaded option means you can taste the onion more and give the dish a rustic feel. Serves 2

All you need is

1 red onion, large

2 tbsp flour

1 egg

2 tbsp breadcrumbs

1 tbsp paprika

To make it just

Preheat oven to 240°C/220°C Fan/Gas Mark 9

In separate bowls place the flour, egg and breadcrumbs.Mix the paprika into the breadcrumbs well and then whisk the egg gently. Chop the red onion into large rounds, roughly 2cm thick.

Then gently push the centre of the ring so it separates, giving you lots of thin onion rounds.

Coat each round individually in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs and place on a baking tray. Cook them for 20 minutes on 240°C/220°C Fan/Gas Mark 9

Take out of the oven and enjoy!

The reviews are in

A great alternative to pub grub, these onion rings work well with burgers and chips for a healthy cheat meal.

They are not incredibly easy to coat but well worth the effort, use a fork to turn the rings in the flour, egg and breadcrumbs.
