Air Fryer Onion Rings are super crispy and crunchy, easy-to-make, and so much healthier for you than deep-fried! Use a 3-bowl technique to coat your sliced onions with flour, an egg wash, and breadcrumbs. You'll then cook them in the Air Fryer until golden brown and ultra crispy. They make a great game day snack or weeknight dinner appetizer or side dish!
Bowl 1: Add flour, garlic powder, paprika, and ¾ teaspoon salt. Whisk until well combined.
Bowl 2: Add egg and milk. Whisk until well combined. Add in ⅓ cup of flour mixture from bowl 1 and mix until smooth.
Bowl 3: Add Panko bread crumbs, remaining salt, and oil. Toss until crumbs are well coated in the oil.
Dip one onion ring in the flour mixture, dredge the egg wash, and then coat with the bread crumbs. Repeat this process with the remaining onion rings and place on a plate until ready to air fry.
Preheat air fryer to 360°F for at least 3 minutes. Add onion rings in a single layer making sure not to overlap them. You can place smaller rings inside of bigger rings to make more room.
Keep onion rings warm between batches by placing on a parchment paper lined baking sheet in a 250°F oven.
