Baked Onion Rings

OK who doesn't love onion ring!? i know i do and these are just 76 cals per serving regular deep fried onion rings are about 276 per serving and 15 grams of fat! I've seen this recipe floating around on foodgawker and other blogs. i found this one on Ginas skinny recipes.
 i didn't read the recipe before i started and it said on the 1st step leave the rings in the buttermilk for 1-2 hours in the fridge well i didn't have time for that so i just dunked them in and hoped for the best. it definitely worked. i bet if i left them for 2 hours they would of been way better!
i also made these with some turkey burgers too.
