Air Fryer Onion Rings

A couple of days ago I found a real bargain on an air fryer and bought it.  I've been looking at them ever since they came out and have been on the fence about getting one.  It has turned out to be easier to use than I thought it would be and will get used a lot in my kitchen!

This recipe makes two generous servings.  My advice is to put plenty of salt in the bread crumbs and don't slice the onions too thinly.  Half inch slices work well.  Process the crumbs until they're pretty fine particles.

I preheated the air fryer at 375° while preparing the onion slices.  The onion rings came out crispy and the onions were nicely cooked.


1 medium onion
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
2 T. flour
2 egg whites
Salt and pepper to taste

Peel and slice onion in ½” thick slices and separate into rings. 
Put flour in plastic bag.  Add onion slices and shake until they’re all coated.
Place bread crumbs in food processor or blender and process into fine crumbs.
Using a fork, beat egg whites with a tiny amount of water into a froth.
Dip flour coated onion rings in egg white mixture and coat with crumbs.
Cook in preheated air fryer at 375° for 6 minutes.
