   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      large         red onions -- about. 1 1/2 lbs
      1/2  cup           bread crumbs -- or Panko
    1      teaspoon      garlic powder
      1/2  teaspoon      paprika
    2      large         egg whites
 
 Preheat the oven to 375* F.  Lightly spray a baking sheet with olive oil
 spray.
 
 Peel the skin from the onions and trim the bottoms so that the onions
 sit flat. Starting at the center of the top of each onion and working
 around it, cut 20 to 30 slits, cutting only three-quarters into the
 onion for a “flower” effect. Transfer to the baking sheet. 
 In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, garlic powder and paprika.
 Set aside. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites lightly with a fork.
 Pour the whites over the onion to cover thoroughly and then sprinkle
 evenly with the seasoned crumbs. Spray lightly with olive oil spray and
 bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until the onions are lightly browned. Serve
 Immediately.
