Anyone who knows me well, knows I LOVE onion rings! It's an addiction really. The problem is most commercially produced onion rings make me very sick. It's a combination of grease used and the type of onion. I've tried many different recipes and this is my favorite AND it's low calorie. They're really good and good for you! Guess that gives me permission to eat as many as I want! YUM!
