If you have followed my blog, you know I love fried foods. However, I don’t like the way they make me feel. I’m not a fan of biting into food and grease shoots out of it. Disgusting. So, I’ve been working on baking “fried” food in the oven. Why fry food when you can easily bake it with the same, if not better, results? Every oven fried food I’ve made has come out very delicious, and this recipe is no exception.
So for the new year, I decided to make a resolution. I’m already on a fitness journey, so I wanted to pick a resolution that focused on food. I decided I wanted to try a new food each month. Now, this could be a food I’ve never had before, or this could be a food I’ve had but that I personally have not made. So for the next year you will see some recipes that feature one or both parts of my resolution. This is the first post in my resolution collection.
My favorite sandwich is the grilled cheese. It’s a simple sandwich, but I have always loved the grilled cheese. It’s hard to hate on melty cheese stuffed between two toasty pieces of bread. Over the years, I have experimented with different kinds of cheese, breads, and fillings for my grilled cheeses. I’m pleased to say I made the most delicious and simple grilled cheese this week.
Fried foods and I have a love-hate relationship. I love to eat them, but I hate how high in calories they are. It is hard to resist a crunchy fried food. Since my switch to a low calorie diet, I have done a pretty decent job at omitting fried foods. There is one fried food that I occasionally dream about though: onion rings. I love all things onion. I also love the crunchy battered onion rings that come straight out of the fryer. Unfortunately, fried onion rings are entirely too high in calorie for me to enjoy a full serving. So, I decided to make onion rings I could eat a full serving of without feeling guilty about calories.
