Favorite Ingredients Friday

I LOVE Onion Rings and finding a Weight Watchers substitute has been hard because I started with the wrong recipe. I ate the Hungry Girl ones, but my dh hated the Fiber One as a breading. I have to admit, these are so much better!!! I love the dipping sauce! It really does taste like the "bloomin' onion" sauce. When I went to Applebees(pre Weight Watchers), I used to have a Burger that had onion peels and the dipping sauce on the burger, I think it was called the cowboy burger. Well, last night, I had some of my dipping sauce and onion rings on my Boca Burger instead of Mayo and it was super yummy!
Onion Rings with Dipping Sauce
2 large sweet onions
1/3 c. dried breadcrumbs
1/4 c. egg substitute

Put breadcrumbs into another bag. Pour egg substitute into a shallow bowl. Coat each double ring in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs.Place on baking sheet and spray tops with Pam. Bake about 10 minutes, turn, and bake 5 minutes longer.
