These 10 air fryer recipes for onion rings offer a variety of seasonings and lots of helpful tips for getting the best results possible.
You’ll see that several of these recipes instruct you to cook onion rings in a single layer in your air fryer. That would take forever, and based on my personal experience I completely disagree.
For an air fryer work properly, it must be able to circulate hot air around the surface of foods. Many foods should be cooked in a single layer to allow for good air circulation. For example, if you stack chicken nuggets they will cook unevenly and will not have a crispy coating all around.
Onion rings are different simply because of the way they are shaped. You can easily stack 2 or 3 layers and still leave plenty of gaps for air to circulate well and give you nice crispy results.
That said, the recipes below offer some good advice and tasty seasonings. You’re sure to find your favorite!
