When we tire of ordinary onion rings, these are next on the list.

Cajun Onion Rings
1 large sweet yellow onion
1 egg
2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup dry bread cumbs
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, to taste

Cut onion into 1/2 inch thick slices. Separate slices into rings, leaving 2 layers of onion in each ring. In a small bowl, beat egg and oil together. In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, and spices; mix well. Dip onion rings into egg, then dredge in seasoned bread crumbs to coat. Arrange in a circle on a paper plate. Cover with paper towel. Cook on High (700 watt oven) for 2-2 1/2 minutes or until onion is slightly cooked.

Have made this many time substituting 1 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning for the spices and fried in hot oil. Drain well on paper towels and enjoy.
We actually preferred it fried but the microwave version is pretty good.
