Onion rings are my favorite fried side dish, and these Frozen Air Fryer Onion Rings are so super crispy!
The air fryer makes these onion rings perfectly crunchy on the outside with tender cooked onions on the inside. I sometimes whip these up after school for a quick snack before dinner because it's easy to make one onion ring or 100!

HOW TO MAKE FROZEN AIR FRYER ONION RINGS
All you need for this onion ring recipe is frozen onion rings and an air fryer!
- First, remove your onion rings from the freezer. You don't want to thaw them, so take them out right before you're ready to cook them!
- Next, portion out your frozen onion rings. An average serving size is about 6 onion rings per person.
- Then, place the onion rings in your air fryer basket — or on an air fryer tray — in a single layer. Cook onion rings at 400 degrees F (or 204 degrees C) for about 6 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking time.
- Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!

When it comes to brands, anything from generic to top shelf works. You can even make your own and freeze them for later! Try these Gluten-Free Onion Rings for homemade fresh or frozen onion rings!
I prefer not to stack the rings so they cook evenly. Keep a bit of space between each ring, too, to get an even crunch on all sides.
Onion rings are done when they're golden brown. Be watchful the last few minutes because cook times will vary depending on thickness of the rings.
