Onion rings are a great way to make onions more approachable for kids! Get your kids in the kitchen with many steps: they will love to help measure the ingredients, crack the eggs, and set up the breading assembly line. Little fingers might get pretty messy while making this recipe, but the end result is well worth it. Experiment with the kind of breadcrumbs you use or try grinding pretzels or crackers in the food processor to make a crunchy coating for the onion rings. Serve up the baked, crispy rings with ketchup, ranch dressing, or your family's favorite sauce to enjoy as a snack or side dish.
