I love these rings, and the thing of it is that they are baked & you'd never know they weren't deep fried. I once ate the whole tray by myself. I love the cornflake & breadcrumb taste too. It's a 5 star as far as I'm concerned.
These are very tasty and healthier than their deep fried counterparts. I had a problem with the dredging though - the cornflake mixture gets lumpy after ring #5 or so and the remaining rings are very hard to coat as a result. to address this issue, I seperated the cornflake mixture into two bowls instead of just the one.
WOW!!! Eating these makes you think they are straight from a diner!! But to know they are baked with very little oil is fantastic! And they were super easy...was able to pull them off on a weeknight and still got dinner on the table in about 40 minutes. Will be making these again and again!
These were wonderful! They were every bit as good as deep fried ones. Like the previous poster, I would not use olive oil because of the high heat. I used vegetable oil. I also added more cayenne pepper because we like spicy seasoning. This recipe is a definite keeper.
These rings have a great flavor and crunch, but I do not recommend Olive Oil in a 450 degree oven unless you do not mind a lot of smoke. I use grapeseed oil or another oil that has a higher smoke point.
