Oven Fried Onion Rings

Oven Fried Egg-Free Onion Rings

2 Medium Sized Onions sliced in ½ inch slices
3 ½ Cups Buttermilk
2 Cups All purpose Flour
4 ½ Tablespoons of Sour Cream
2 tsp. Paprika
1 tsp. Garlic powder
1 tsp. Black Pepper
2 tsp. Kosher Salt
2 ½ Cups Panko bread crumbs
¼ Cup Cornmeal
In a casserole dish, place sliced onions and cover with 2 ½ Cups of Buttermilk. Cover dish with foil and put in fridge to soak for at least 5 hours.  Overnight is better. 
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Remove onions from fridge and set aside.  In a large bowl, combine flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  In a separate bowl, mix together remaining 1 Cup Buttermilk and Sour Cream, whisk together.  In a third bowl, combine Panko and Cornmeal with a pinch of Salt.
Dredge onion rings in flour, then in buttermilk and sour cream mixture and then in Panko mixture.  Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with Cooking Spray (Olive Oil cooking spray works best).  Repeat until all onion rings have been coated.  Bake onion rings for 7 ½ to 10 minutes and then flip.  Bake for an additional 7 ½ to 10 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. 
*Optional Dipping Sauce*

6 Tablespoons Salted Butter
3 Tablespoons Flour
1 Cup Chicken Stock
½ Cup Milk
¼ Cup Chive & Onion Cream Cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a small sauce pan, melt butter.  Whisk in flour and cook for 1 minute until a brown color is achieved.  Whisk in Chicken Stock.  The sauce will then thicken.  Add Cream Cheese and stir until melted.  Whisk in milk, salt and pepper and whisk through.  Cook for 2 minutes until all flavors have combined. 
Serves 4.
