Sit back and enjoy this Easy Air Fryer Onion Rings Recipe, plus they can be made gluten free too.
Easy Air Fryer Onion Rings are a delight especially paired with a delicious cut of your favorite smoked meats. We actually paired this with Smoked Bologna. I’ll be sharing all about our Smoked Bologna on Friday. It was a great pairing, these are delicious and perfect as a side item. I adapted my Air Fryer Fried Pickles Recipe to make these.
Are you ready for summer and cookouts? I sure am! We have had the wildest weather lately and not tornadoes but COLD! It has been so extremely cold these past few weeks, it’s just not typical at all for April in Oklahoma. On top of that our schools shutdown for a teacher walkout. It’s all just been a wild ride.
I have one child in private school and one in public school at the moment. That means one went to school and one was out. That was super fun to explain.
My son that was in school was happy to to tell me how unfair that was even though he didn’t like the part that those out of school would be going to school to make up those days.

My daughter though she’s in Pre-K and doesn’t quite understand what is going on with the walkout, so she was crying daily about how much she missed her friends and teacher.
Hopefully, we will be able to finish out the year though and head into summer. I am so ready to just kick back and relax, not have to worry about bedtime or rushing out the door in the mornings. Of course about halfway through the summer, I’ll be counting down the days back to school.
It never fails, what can I say? There are many challenges that come from working from home especially in the summer time, but we make the best of it and enjoy it all.
Now, let’s get to these Air Fryer Onion Rings!

What do you need for Air Fryer Onion Rings?
- Air Fryer
- White Onion
- Breadcrumbs or Gluten Free Breadcrumbs
- Cooking Spray
That’s all you need for the best Air Fryer Onion Rings. The main thing is that you really need to slice the onions as you would expect onion rings to be sized, then soak them well in the buttermilk. This really enhances the flavor, plus the way the breading adheres to it.
I also like to foil line my Air Fryer just to help avoid a mess after. I used a Midea 3.7L to make these and did it in 3 batches for 1 large White Onion. This is a great size for a family of 4; however, I would definitely suggest a larger one if you cook more like I do. I typically do recipes for at least 6, so larger would be better.
I’m hoping to upgrade to a larger one soon too.
Now, it’s time to enjoy these Air Fryer Onion Rings!
Air Fryer Onion Rings
- Place the onions in a shallow bowl or dish and pour the buttermilk over them.
- Let them sit and soak for 1-2 hours.
- Prepare a bowl for the flour, a separate bowl for beaten eggs, and another bowl for the breadcrumbs.
- Add a dash of salt to the breadcrumbs.
- Dip the onions in the flour, dust off any excess.
- Dip them in the eggs, let the excess drip off.
- Coat with the breadcrumbs.
- Place evenly in the Air Fryer.
- At this point, you can add some salt to them or salt them after they are done.
- Fry them in the Air Fryer on 390* for about 5 minutes on each side or until they are crispy.
- If you prefer, spray with some cooking spray to get them a little bit more brown in color.
