The best homemade baked Onion Rings ever!!!

I have to say we thought these onions rings were awesome. They were lightly crisp, great smoky/spicy flavor and they were not deep fried (yay!)

1 cup barbecue sauce of your choice (I used kc masterpiece original)
1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 tablespoons flour
3 cups panko bread crumbs
2 medium to large yellow onions, sliced into 1/2-inch rings

1.Slice up the onions and let them soak in a bowl of milk for 15-20 min.

2.Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place two baking sheets in the oven and let those preheat too.
3.In a medium bowl, whisk together barbecue sauce, eggs and flour. Place bread crumbs in a separate bowl.
Using tongs (or your fingers) dip onion slices in the barbecue sauce mixture, shake the excess off and then dunk on all sides into the Panko crumbs. Lay flat on a cool service. Repeat the process with all the onion slices.

4.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.

5.Bake for about 8 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 4-6 minutes. Watch closely to make sure the crumbs don’t burn.

I put mine under the broiler for 1-2 min to crisp them up at the end.
6.Remove from oven and serve immediately.
