Oat-Baked Onion Rings

cooking spray
2 large egg whites
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
2 large onions, yellow, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds and separated into rings
5 packets, uncooked instant oatmeal, 1 oz. each (about 2 cups total)
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat 2 large baking sheets (I used cookie sheets) with cooking spray.

In a large shallow bowl or dish, whisk together egg whites and sour cream. Add onion rings and turn to coat. Transfer onion rings to a large bowl and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Sprinkle mixture over onions and toss to coat. Spread onion out on prepared baking sheets and lightly coat with cooking spray.

Bake until tender and golden, about 40-45 minutes. Yields 1/4 of onion rings per serving.

points value: 3 per serving

We enjoyed these for dinner tonight. It is a recipe that can be played with and changed up to get different flavors. Kris liked them and said he would like to have them again. One change that I did make to this recipe is that I used regular rolled oat instead of the instant (it's just what I had on hand). I rolled over the oats with a rolling pin to break them up a little so they would spread farther over the onions. They are yummy and NOT full of grease! We dipped these in ketchup. I'm sure
any dipping sauce would be good (keep in mind some dipping sauces will add points). I have a recipe for zucchini fries that I want to try too. I'll post that recipe when I get around to making them. I got this recipe from WeightWatchers.com. They have free recipes that you can get off their site as well as in their free newsletters. I always like trying their recipes.
