These were fantastic, tasty, easy to make and went so well with burgers. So low fat too. Will definitely be making these again. My husband suggested using curry powder instead of Cajun seasoning for something different - will be trying this next.

These were so easy and SO tasty! Burnt mine slightly so agree with the comment about making sure they don't overcook. Although saying that they were still delicious and went down a treat. Great addition to lots of meals!

these are lovely & really easy to make BUT make sure you don't over cook them as they are not nice when they are over cooked.

These were great! Healthier than the average onion ring, yet equally (if not more) delicious. Don't let the grusome picture put you off (I almost deferred); I was a little anxious about how these may turn out, but mine looked stunning! Definitely recommend these.
