Ingredients For Air-Fryer Onion Rings
- Two large (10-ounce) sweet onions, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices after peeling.
- One-half teaspoon of onion powder
- One teaspoon of split garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt, separated
- Two big eggs
- Half a cup of whole-wheat flour
- Split ¾ cup of buttermilk.
- Triple-cup panko breadcrumbs
- Half a cup of mayonnaise
- One tablespoon of freshly cut chives
- One tablespoon of freshly chopped parsley
Instructions For Air-Fryer Onion Rings
- For three minutes, preheat the air fryer to 375°F. Apply frying spray to the fryer basket.
- Slice the onions into rings. In a big bowl, toss the onion rings with 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and onion powder. In a shallow dish, whisk together eggs, flour, and 1/2 cup buttermilk. Transfer panko to a different shallow plate. After dipping each onion ring in the egg mixture and letting any excess drop off, fully coat it with panko and put it in the fryer basket. Until the basket is full, keep going. Apply some frying spray to the onion rings. Cook for about 8 minutes, flipping once, or until crispy. Repeat, working in batches as needed, with the remaining onion rings.
- In the meantime, combine 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 cup buttermilk, chives, and parsley with mayonnaise in a small basin. After adding the final 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the onion rings, serve them with the dipping sauce.
