Air Fryer Frozen Onion Rings

Forget the deep fryer, air fryer frozen onion rings are the only way to enjoy onion rings. These onion rings come out crispy every single time, without the need to add any extra oil.

This is hands down my favourite way to make onion rings. Not only do they taste so good, they also cook much quicker than in the oven.

Tips for making the perfect onion rings

  • There is no need to preheat the air fryer first. If you do prefer to preheat your air fryer, reduce the cooking time slightly.
  • Don’t overcrowd the airfryer basket. The onion rings will be crispier if the air can flow evenly around them as they cook. Cook in 2 batches if necessary.
  • All air fryers cook slightly differently, so check the onion rings regularly to check they aren’t cooking too quickly.
  • Cook the onion rings from frozen.
