Low Carb Onion Rings with Pork Rind Breading


Super Easy Low Carb Onion Rings

So my youngest son was playing with his pretend kitchen set and was "cooking" me all this food to eat and he brings me a fake onion ring. Now, prior to my low carb life I was never like a HUGE fan of onion rings, but when they were in front of me I ate them...and enjoyed it. For some reason though when he handed me that plastic onion ring, a deep craving immediately set in and I literally jumped up from my chair to get to the kitchen and find a way to make some low carb onion rings. I didn't even bother looking through Pinterest or Google, because I went straight to my favorite low carb "breading" alternative...Pork Rinds. From there I just winged it and the result was amazing! These are oh so simple and I can't even imagine a non low carber turning these babies down...they were delicious! 


Ingredients
Pork rinds (orginal or flavored- your choice)
Onion 
Eggs
Frying oil
Seasoning (optional) 

Directions

1. Take a few handfuls of pork rinds and either hand crush them in a bowl or bag, or put them in a blender (as I did), until it forms somewhat of powder. You can add any seasonings you'd like at this point. This will be the breading for your onion rings. 




2. Cut a few "rings" from your onion

3. Whisk 1-2 eggs (just depends on how many onion rings you're doing) together in a bowl. Put your pork rind powder in a separate bowl, and gather your onion rings near. It's time to bread them!

4. One at a time-- dip the onions in the egg, then transfer to the pork rinds and cover completely, then lay on a plate.



5. Heat some cooking oil in a frying pan on medium high heat and then add your onion rings. Turning them a few times, fry until breading is crispy and golden brown. Lay on paper towels to cool a bit and soak up any extra grease. Done. Enjoy! 



Happy Low Carbing!

  1. Great site, thank you for taking the time to post these recipes. I am going to try the onion rings tonight. Sorry about the mean comments from the Trolls. It seems to me, that these people try to put other people down to make themselves feel better, due to something lacking in their lives or just plain old mean and jealous. Lots of good people out here. Keep on, keeping on!

  2. I worked at Sonic Drivein some 35 years ago and they have the best onion rings hands down.. They used ice cream mix to dip them in before they mixed them in the breading mixture. I was just telling a friend yesterday how to make them low carb.. We dunked them in the ice cream mix, then the dry mix and laid them out to dry somewhat and then we repeated those steps again... Then they sat in the frig until someone ordered them and into the frier they went.. Leaving them to sit out for a little bit before they go in the frier keeps the breading intact.

    3. I'm wondering if you could use an egg and heavy cream mixture with maybe a bit of arrowroot as a thickener, instead of the ice cream mix?

  20. Gold Amethyst Rings never goes out of style. Since ancient times people have been wearing jewellery made of gold. Apart from its extraordinary luster, gold has amazing properties that makes it suitable to get moulded into any shape. It is extremely wearer friendly and generally does not cause any type of skin allergies. Because 100% gold is very soft, it is mixed with other metals to give it strength and durability required for jewellery.

Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you, however it still always surprises me how many mean and rotten comments I receive, so please remember that I post what I eat merely as a suggestion of ideas for others. Low carbing is not cut and dry. What works for me may or may not work for you. Also, I live exclusively low carb, but I don't live my life counting them so I don't often include the net carb counts on recipes. Happy low carbing ya'll! :)
