Perfect for a party appetizer or even game day, onion rings are a great choice. They are simply delicious. That golden breadcrumb with that delicious tender onion. Yummy!

Once upon a time, they were deep fried… Why you should cook frozen onion rings in the air fryer
The traditional method has always been to deep fry them. Let’s not beat around the bush…they were greasy and unhealthy. However much they were tasty, it was offset by the negative aspects of deep-fried food. The humble air fryer changes all that. You are literally using a tablespoon of oil to cook all those onion rings, instead of a pan full of oil.
Better still, there is very little to clean up and you’re not having to dispense all that oil. Trust me when I say that it is reason enough to get an air fryer. It certainly saves money over time.
Which air fryer frozen onion rings should I buy?
Essentially you have a choice of two types you can buy. There is the standard breaded onion rings which are the basic ones…they are ok. The better tasting ones are the beer battered onion rings…they are simply delicious. Not only do they look more appetising, they taste delicious…crispy and smooth with a delicious tender onion inside. I highly recommend them and they are similarly priced to the standard ones.
