In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how to make Air Fryer Onion Rings.

Air Fryer Onion Rings

When I go out for dinner with friends and it is not very formal, I really find a bowl of onion rings ideal as a snack. I already loved the taste of baked onions, I’m a big fan. When I found out about Fried Onion Rings I was completely sold. The problem for me with onion rings is that they are actually so gone. They are so delicious and when you hand them out everyone will take them too.

I can imagine that you think, it takes a long time for making them and I need a lot of ingredients. That’s not entirely true. You can make the recipe I cover at the bottom of this article in under 30 minutes. And with this recipe you can make them in the Air Fryer! Perfect! It is the best snack you can serve to friends or family. This snack is especially popular in the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Australia and countries in Asia. In addition to being called onion rings, they are called Beignet d’oignon in France and Bhajji aux oignons in India.
