Basically the Best Baked Onion Rings - Ever. Baked Vegetables with Bread Crumbs Recipe

Now this is home cooking in Italy. Vedure gratinate (baked vegetables with bread crumbs) can be found on many tables here in our area, always delicious - warm & toasty or packed up for a pot-luck.  The thick slices of onions are my favorite and are basically the best onion rings ever! They come out soft & warm inside with perfectly light & crispy crunch. To top it off this healthy dish is incredibly simple to make & can be served as an antipasto or at the end of the meal with your meat as a contorno.

Baked Vegetables with Bread Crumbs
Vedure Gratinate

serves 4

(Below are suggested veggies, you can use any kind of vegetables you like, cut in half, lengthwise so they have a large flat surface)
1 tomato
1 small zucchini
1 eggplant
1 onion (thickly sliced)
1 pepper
small handful of fresh herbs of your choice (we use: oregano, parsley or marjoram), chopped
salt & pepper
extra virgin olive oil
about a cup of plain bread crumbs

Season plain breadcrumbs with fresh herbs.
Place veggies on cookie sheet, (covered in parchment paper) drizzle with olive oil, add salt & pepper.
Sprinkle breadcrumbs generously over vegetables, covering them (but not a half an inch of breadcrumbs).
Add another drizzle of olive oil.
Bake 375 degree oven for 45 minutes - 1 hour, until vegetables are soft & breadcrumbs are browned on top.
Serve warm or room temperature.
