These kosher for Passover onion rings are baked, not fried. They’re low-fat and low-cal, so feel free to take seconds.  Onions are rich in l-tryptophan—an amino acid that is a natural sedative, so eat a bunch of these onion rings and get a good night’s sleep.  And…yes…kosher for Passover panko crumbs are available.  Wishing all a Happy and Sweet Passover!


  • ½ cup matzo cake meal
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup Kosher for Passover Panko crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 large onions, cut into ½ inch rounds and separated into about 36 rings

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Line two large baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray.

Place matzo cake meal in a large (gallon size) zip lock bag.

Place the egg whites in a mixing bowl and whisk well.

Place the Kosher for Passover panko crumbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika in another mixing bowl and mix together well.

Add a few onion rings at a time to the zip lock bag, close the bag, and shake well so that the onions are coated with the flour.  Place the flour coated onions into the egg whites, then dip into the panko mixture.  Place coated onion rings on prepared baking sheets.

Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

Makes about 3 dozen onion rings.
