Ham Sandwiches and Baked Barbeque Onion Rings

What was for dinner at the Hoffman's Tuesday night? Ham Sandwiches "grilled" on the stove, baked barbeque onion rings (amazing.) and sliced apple. I came across this recipe for the onion rings and just had to give them a try. But, pair them with what? I thought...hamburgers, nah...hotdogs, nah...ooooh, grilled ham sandwiches on delicious bread we had! They turned out fabulous. I lightly buttered the bread on one side, then put low-fat mayo, mustard, ham, and cheese (on Daniel's). I placed them on the burner on medium, then let them get warm and toasted. They were perfect! Along with this were the onion rings. They seriously tasted like fried onion rings...but...they're baked...woohoo! They were so so so so good...we couldn't get over that they were not fried! Give them a try:


1 cup barbecue sauce (your preference- I used Sweet Baby Rays)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
3 cups panko bread crumbs
2 medium to large sweet onions, sliced into 1/2-inch rings

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place two baking sheets in the oven and let those preheat too.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together barbecue sauce, eggs and flour.
3. Place bread crumbs in a separate bowl.
4. Using tongs (or your fingers) dip onion slice in the barbecue sauce mixture, shake the excess off and then dunk on all sides into the bread crumbs. Lay on a cool baking sheet. Repeat until all onion slices have been dunked.
5. Remove hot baking sheets from the oven and spray lightly with cooking spray. Move coated onions to hot baking sheets. Spray the coated onions lightly with cooking spray.
6. Bake for about 6 minutes, or until golden, then use tongs to turn each onion ring over. Spray the other side of the onions with cooking spray and bake for an additional 5 to 7 minutes. Watch closely to make sure they crumbs are not browning too quickly or burning.
7. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
Serves. 4 to 6
