I don't eat fried food very often, but if given the opportunity and the mood is right, I will get down with some onion rings. So, why not make them at home without using any oil, and instead coating them in a crispy breadcrumb coating and baking them to perfection?
So, yeah, that's what I did! And I also normally wouldn't use mayo (or vegan mayo) as a dip, but I wanted these to feel like I was eating at a restaurant so I went with a very classic tasting simple aioli. It SO felt like we were at a pub on game day. As Bill put it, "these are legit."
So here ya go, super easy baked onion rings with a spicy dijon aioli dip. They make me want to invite people over for football games and serve them alongside jackfruit nachos. Mmmm...
