Notes

Quick Tips:
  • For this onion, I prefer to use a white sweet onion or a yellow onion. Red onions are a bit too bitter for this recipe.
  • If you want to give it a little spice and kick, just sprinkle in some red pepper flakes or a dash of cayenne pepper into the batter.
How to air fry:
  1. Spray the air fryer basket with non-stick spray.
  2. Lay the onion rings in the basket in a single layer. Do not stack them.
  3. Cook for 10-12 minutes at 370 degrees F.
  4. Check the onion rings after about 6 minutes to see if they need to be flipped over.
