It’s daylight savings again! I swear, it feels like we JUST turned our clocks back, and now we’re turning them up again. As much as I like really miss that hour we lose in the mornings, I am greatly in favor of having an extra hour of light at night. It doesn’t get dark now until 7 or 7:30! Halleluiah! That also means I can get photos done later in the afternoon, which is crazy helpful. 

What do you guys think of the whole petition to get rid of daylight savings? I can’t say I feel overly strong about it one way, or another. I’m curious what your thoughts are though!

So, regardless of the current time, it’s never a bad time for onion rings and wings right?! I’ve got a little twist for you though. I don’t have any old chicken wing for you today….today I’ve got FISH WINGS! Ya I know, we aren’t actually eating wings off of fish. But these tasty little fish nuggets from High Liner Canada are breaded and coated in a buffalo hot sauce, just like the hot wings we all know and love. 

And what goes best with wings? Oven baked onion rings, of course! Put them together and you’ve got yourself a REALLY good (and quick) lunch, dinner or appetizer platter.

How do you make homemade breaded onion rings?

You need a few things to make your own baked onion rings:

  • sweet onions (these are different from the usual yellow onion)
  • milk (you can use non-dairy)
  • egg whites
  • all-purpose flour
  • paprika bread crumbs

If you saw my post for air fryer coconut shrimp, this dipping method is similar to that.

Start by slicing your sweet onions into 1/2″ rounds. I have to do this outside because even sweet onions inside make me cry for the whole afternoon! Now soak your onion slices in the milk while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

I like to lay out the egg whites, panko and flour in 3 shallow bowls, to make the dipping process easy for me. 

I suggest keeping a dry dish towel or paper towel nearby as well, to wipe off your fingers while you’re dipping and breading the onions. You’ll start by grabbing an onion slice, shaking off any excess milk, dipping it in the flour, then the egg whites, then the panko. Be sure to press the onion slice right into the crumbs to completely cover it.

Line up the onions, side by side, and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. You’ll need 2 sheets.

How long do you have to bake crispy baked onion rings?

The onion rings will be cooked through after 25-30 minutes; although you have to be sure to flip them halfway through to keep the browning even.

When I made this meal, I used my double oven to bake the fish wings in the top oven and the onion rings in the bottom half, so that everything could be ready at the same time. If you don’t have a double oven, you can also use a toaster oven for the fish wings, OR do the onion rings first, then cover them with aluminum foil on a plate while you do the fish wings.

While everything is baking, you can whip up the buffalo aioli for dipping!

It’s also made with only a few ingredients:

  • buffalo sauce
  • mayo
  • minced garlic
  • honey

What else can you serve with this for dinner?

If you want to make these oven baked onion rings and fish wings into a full dinner, I would suggest serving it up with a big side salad. I’ve got a few suggestions from the blog:

We had this for lunch and it was fantastic. Honestly, those spicy fish wings are so good. I ended up going back to the grocery store and stocking up on a few extra boxes! They also happen to be perfect for late night snacking 😉

Happy daylight savings, guys!

Oven Baked Onion Rings with Fish Wings

  • Author: Katherine | Love In My Oven
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Is it an appetizer? Meal? These oven baked onion rings with fish wings can go either way! These homemade breaded onion rings can be made in no time, and they pair perfectly with a spicy buffalo aioli. 


  • High Liner Spicy Buffalo Fish Wings (1 box) 

Oven Baked Onion Rings

  • 2 sweet onions
  • 1 cup milk*
  • 4 egg whites, whisked
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • Cooking spray

 Buffalo Aioli Dipping Sauce

  • 1 tbsp buffalo sauce
  • 2 tbsp mayo
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F and place the fish wings in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  2. Slice the onions into ½” slices and place them in a large mixing bowl. Pour the milk on top and stir to coat. Allow the onions to soak while you set out 3 shallow bowls and prepare another baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Place the whisked egg whites in one of the shallow bowls. In another bowl, combine the flour, paprika, salt and pepper. In the remaining bowl, place the Panko. Take the sliced onions, one by one, out of the milk and shake off excess milk. Dredge the onion ring in flour, then place it into the egg whites, covering it completely. Take it out and press it into the Panko, ensuring the crumbs stick to both sides, and place it onto the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining onion slices. Spray the onion rings with cooking spray and place both baking sheets (fish wings and onion rings) into the oven. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove the baking sheets. Flip the fish wings and onion rings, then spray the onion rings again with cooking spray. Bake for another 5-7 minutes. Remove the fish wings to a separate plate and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm, while you cook the onion rings for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until crispy and cooked through.
  4. While the onions and fish are cooking, prepare the dipping sauce by whisking together the buffalo sauce, mayo, minced garlic and honey. Serve the fish wings and onion rings immediately, with the dipping sauce.


*Feel free to use non-dairy milk, but use something without a strong flavor (ie. almond milk)

Oven Baked Onion Rings with Fish Wings


  1. I’ll definitely have to have a look out for those! Hubby and I would love for an easy Friday night snack. And didya know that onion rings are my absolute FAVE? I seriously am obsessed with ’em. I hardly ever order them out, unless they’re made from scratch because those are the best. These look wonderful, Katherine! Can’t wait to give ’em a go 🙂 Happy Monday!

    • I did not know that Dawn, but now I’m so glad I made you some 😉 I actually love, love them too. Etienne likes to stop by A&W sometimes, and I have to get some deep fried onion rings whenever he goes! Now I have a healthier version. Yay! Thanks pal!

    I don’t have strong feelings about daylight saving time either. Arizona doesn’t participate in it so I never have to fiddle with my clocks, which is nice, but even when I lived elsewhere I didn’t really care. . .so I’ll just let the petitioners deal with it! Anyway, I LOVE onion rings but I’ve never tried them in the oven. I have to try this–and I love the sound of the fish wings too!

    • Haha Kelsie. Yes! I say let the petitioners deal with it too. It is nice that you don’t have to fiddle with your clocks though! That part is annoying. I keep finding clocks that are wrong and they are freaking me out 😉 Thanks my friend!!

  17. Onion rings are possibly my greatest fried food weakness (though I’ll admit, they do have some competition). I absolutely adore a good onion ring, and the idea of having them without any actual frying has me salivating. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe – it’s a perfect addition to the fish!

  18. I’ve never made my own onion rings, but this looks doable! And the fish wings are interesting to me – I’ve never heard of them! As far as daylight savings goes.. I actually don’t mind it. And we’re used to it so why mess with it?
