Today’s post is a mashup of two of my favorite pizza shop foods: Onion Rings and Falafel Balls.
Let’s back up a minute. I know, I know, when most people think “pizza shop,” they probably think, ya know, Pizza. Or maybe french fries. Assuming you keep kosher, there’s a good chance you think knishes. Or sushi. (I’m rolling my eyes at that last one).
But me? I like pizza. And fries. And knishes. And sometimes even sushi. That being said, I often find myself opting for falafel balls. And onion rings. Both contain flavors I love, both are fried, crispy and delicious.
So when I started thinking about recipes to make using Knorr’s delicious Falafel mix, I thought about combining those two things. Onion rings + falafel balls = Falafel Crusted Onion Rings. Kinda genius, don’tcha think? And the best news? I’ve also decided to do away with the whole “fried” thing. That’s right. These Falafel Crusted Onion Rings are baked – not fried! And yes, before you even start to wonder, let me assure you that these are crispy too!
Whether you’re looking for something unique and different to try, whether you’re a fellow falafel lover, or whether you’re looking for a baked alternative to two different fried classics, you’ve got to pick up a box of Knorr Falafel Mix (available at most kosher grocery stores, and in the kosher section of many large grocery chains, such as Shopright Stop & Shop) and try this recipe. You’re going to love it!
