Onion Rings

Using Fiber One as a low-cal, high fiber way to fake-fry is a great idea. An average order of onion rings contains 450 calories and 25 grams of fat! An average onion contains 50 calories and no fat. Check out this recipe, it ROCKS!

1 Large Onion
1/2 Cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
1/4 cup egg beaters or egg whites
Dash of Salt
Optional: black pepper, oregano, garlic powder, etc.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut ends off the onion, and remove the outer layer. Cut onion into 1/2 inch wide slices, and separate into rings.

Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Pour Fiber-One "breadcrumbs" into a small dish and mix in salt and any spices you like. Fill a small bowl with egg mixture. One by one, coat each ring first in egg and then in "breadcrumbs" . Evenly place rings on a baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray. Cook for 20-25 minutes, flipping rings over about halfway through. Makes one huge serving.
