1) I don't know how they managed to get such a beautiful picture of these onion rings. I could not get the coating to adhere to ANY of the onion rings... much of it stayed behind in the bag (though I do notice that this step is NOT pictured in the magazine). 2) These tasted NOTHING like barbecue... cumin? Yes. 3) I made no changes to this recipe whatsoever, so I'm very disappointed. So much effort for so little result. I'll just keep buying par-fried onion rings from the freezer and baking them.
Barbecue-Flavored Onion Rings

WHAT A DISASTER!! Did anyone actually try this recipe in the test kitchen??? The bread crumbs would not stick to the onions. Because I am frugal and didn't want to just thow this in the garbage, I ended up tossing the onions with the egg mix and putting them in a casserole dish. I mixed the bread crumbs with the remaining egg mix and spread it over the onions. I baked it for about 14 minutes. It was edible, but did not taste ANYTHING like BBQ. I am really disappointed in Cooking Light -- I've never had a recipe fail like this one.
