trying new recipes

After all that feasting the other day...Sunday's dinner was simple...salmon with sweet and spicy rub. To go along with the salmon, I tried Ellie's oven baked onion ring recipe.

This recipe was easy to put together. I didn't have baked potato chips, so I didn't put the cooking spray on the rings before baking like the recipe says to do.

If you make these, you have to eat them straight out of the oven. They are crisp, delicious and you won't miss that they aren't deep fried.

We had this with some leftover spiced mixed nuts, a salad and Monteith's Hearty Black Beer, a smoky, smooth dark beer from New Zealand. 330 mililiters, 5.2% alcohol, 430 yen (about US$4.30).

It was a great way to end the weekend.

happy anniversary, kat!! 4 years - amazing to think about. i'm so glad to have found you:)

i was JUST thinking about onion rings - i was thisclose to going to BK for some on the weekend:) shhhhh!!

i'll have to give this a try one day. they look scrumptious. did you have them with ketchup or ???

we also had a co-worker party (my cheese post) - those are always so exhausting to get ready for but end up being so enjoyable. sounds like he's got a good group. so important.

It looks good. I love salmon. It goes well many different ways.

Those rings look fantastic! But I don't keep chips in the house, and don't want to buy a bag just for this recipe because I'd snack on the leftovers. What do you think would make a good substitute?

K and S said...

Thanks Deb, I hope you like this, really does beat BK's.

Thanks Mike :)

I don't what you would be able to sub it with Tamara, the chips give it lots of flavor. What about a snack size bag? Like the size you can get when you buy a sandwich? Sorry I'm not much help.

Take care everyone.

Salmon, onion rings and dark beer sounds like it hit the spot after that chowdown. What a foodfest!

K and S said...

Thanks Rowena, it was a foodfest indeed :)

Take care.

I had baked salmon for dinner that night too! Except I served it with ratatouille on the side -- next time, I will try the baked onion rings. Thanks for the recipe, it looks good!

K and S said...

mmm ratatouille on the side sounds so good too Grace :) I hope you like the recipe.

Take care.
