Crispy Air Fryer Onion Rings
Crispy Air Fryer Onion Rings

Sometimes you just want something crispy and fried tasting without all the baggage of such a thing. This is where these come in. Yes, you’ll mess up a bunch of dishes but it’s easy and worth it.

Crispy Air Fryer Onion Rings

12 medium or one large yellow sweet onion (like Vidalia or Walla Walla), cut into -inch slices and separated into rings
cup all-purpose flour, either regular or gluten-free (I recommend this one)
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic granules
teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon salt
cup unsweetened vegan milk
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons prepared vegan egg, like JUST egg (that was what I used)
1 cup panko or breadcrumbs, regular or gluten-free
Salt and pepper

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees.

Line up three bowls assembly style. In the first one, stir together the flour, paprika, garlic granules, baking powder and salt. In the second bowl, mix together the milk, lemon juice and vegan egg. In the first bowl, put your panko or breadcrumbs. (You may want to do only half the amount of panko in the bowl, then add the other half when it gets sticky.)

Have one of the lined baking sheets nearby.

Dredge onion rings in the flour mixture, then tap off excess. Repeat in the milk-egg bowl, then dredge in the panko or breadcrumbs. Put on the baking sheet one by one until they are all coated.

Put in a 380-degree air fryer in a single layer without overlapping for five minutes, then flip and air fry for another five minutes at the same temperature. You will have to do this several times because you don’t want to crowd your air fryer. When one batch is done, carefully lift out of the air fryer basket and transfer to the other baking sheet for the oven. This will keep them warm until all the batches are done.

Add salt and pepper.

Bake for 25 minutes; turn 180 degrees and bake 25 minutes more. Allow to cool and slice.

Broil for a minute on high.
