If you want to make the onion rings part of a meal, serve them as a side dish with any burger or sandwich. We love them with these veggie burgers, black bean burgers, and BBQ jackfruit sandwiches.
- 1¼ cups panko bread crumbs
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ heaping teaspoon sea salt
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 yellow onion, sliced into ½-inch rings
- Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
- Tartar Sauce, optional, for dipping
On a rimmed tray, mix the panko, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. In a small shallow bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Place the flour in another small bowl.
Preheat the air fryer to 370°F.
Dip each onion ring into the flour, then tap to remove any excess flour. Dip it in the egg, coat with the panko mixture, and then place on a large plate.
Drizzle the onion rings with olive oil and transfer them right into the air fryer basket in a single layer with a little space between each ring.
Don’t overcrowd the basket. Work in batches if necessary. Air fry for 8 to 11 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Repeat with remaining onion rings. Serve with tartar sauce, if desired.
Tip: Once all batches are finished, toss them all back into the air fryer (no need to place in a single layer this time) for 1 to 2 minutes to warm any that got cold from the first batch.
