Crispy baked coconut-acorn squash rings are the healthier alternative to fried onion rings
I've always been an onion ring fan. When given the option of onion rings or fries, onion rings will win hands down for me (unless sweet potato fries are a choice — then things get complicated). I just love the crunchy exterior with the soft, warm middle of the onion ring. Nothing beats that.
Onion rings are one of those things, though, that are totally an order-out kind of food, only because there's no way I'm smelling up my house with frying oil for some greasy onions that the diner can do better than I ever could at home anyway. That said, I still crave them and their crunch. These crispy baked coconut-acorn squash rings are my at-home (healthier) fall version of the onion ring. A version you can feel good about eating, with all the things you love about the classic onion ring.
