Low Carb BBQ Burgers.

The better half harvested 3 huge bowls of Walla Walla Sweets from the garden, so BBQ burgers and Baked Onion Rings were our Friday night dinner!

Condiments for the burgers were:

Pepper Jack cheese
Lettuce
Tomato
Avocado
Grilled Onions
Mayo, Ketchup, Mustard

Burgers were done on the BBQ… The family’s were served on wheat rolls, mine served on lettuce leaves.

Oven Fried Onion Rings

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
4 teaspoons kosher salt
2 cups buttermilk
4 eggs
3 cups panko breadcrumbs
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 large yellow sweet onions, such as Maui, sliced 1/4-to-1/2-inch thick

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place parchment paper onto 2 baking sheets and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, paprika and 2 teaspoons salt. In another bowl or shallow dish, whisk together the buttermilk and eggs. Add half of the flour mixture to the buttermilk and beat until smooth and thickened.

In a separate bowl, combine the panko, olive oil and remaining 2 teaspoons salt.

Lightly dredge the onion rings in the flour mixture and then drop into the buttermilk. Drain the excess batter and then dredge in the panko mixture.

Arrange on the prepared baking sheets in a single layer. You can place smaller rings inside bigger rings if necessary, just make sure there is space between them. Then place in the oven. Cook until golden brown, 14 to 20 minutes. Halfway through the cooking time, flip over each onion ring to ensure even crisping and browning.

  1. I love the “dinner for me and for the family” picture. My husband is following the diet with me but I have a 4 1/2 year old and 3 year old I’m feeding as well. My first challenge that I had was not licking the peanut butter and jelly utensil after making their sandwiches!

    • I bet it’s especially tough eating lower carb with such little ones around. Tortillas/rice is especially hard for me…But the good news is that most of the fixings that go inside of fajitas, burritos, etc. also go really well on top of mixed baby greens or lettuce. And I know exactly what you mean about licking the knife — made a graduation cake a few weeks ago for a friend’s kiddo, and had to hold myself back from the beaters šŸ˜Ž
