Cajun Baked Onion Rings

We LOVE onion rings in this house! These are great on their own or served w/ a dip (e.g., ketchup, ranch, BBQ sauce, or a fancy onion ring sauce).

TIPS: You can make this a Keto or LowCarb recipe – just sub crushed pork rinds for the breadcrumbs and sub almond flour for the all purpose flour.

Cajun Baked Onion Rings Recipe

  • 1 sweet onion, sliced into 1/4″ rings
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning (see my Cajun Seasoning recipe)
  • 4 pinches freshly ground sea salt
  • 6 pinches freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Cover baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Add 1/4 cup flour to a large plate.
  4. On a 2nd large plate, gently mix together the remaining 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup cream, and 1 beaten egg.
  5. Add 1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning, 4 pinches salt, and 6 pinches pepper to egg mixture and gently mix until well blended.
  6. Add 1 cup breadcrumbs to a 3rd large plate.
  7. Dip the onion slices, one-by-one, into the plate of plain flour mixture, then the egg mixture plate.
  8. After step 7 for each, let excess egg mixture drip off, then dip onion slices, one-by-one, into breadcrumbs.
  9. As each ring goes through the battering process, place it onto baking sheets in a single layer.
  10. Bake 20 mins, until onion rings are golden brown.
