Easy Onion Rings

Onion rings are a popular appetizer at many restaurants, and with this recipe, you can satisfy your craving at home.

This is an actual recipe from a former employee of a popular drive-in restaurant. Sweet and tender on the inside, crispy and crunchy on the outside — just like the pros make!


  •  cups panko bread crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ heaping teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 yellow onionsliced into ½-inch rings
  • Extra-virgin olive oilfor drizzling
  • Tartar Sauceoptional, for dipping


  • On a rimmed tray, mix the panko, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. In a small shallow bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Place the flour in another small bowl.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 370°F.
  • Dip each onion ring into the flour, then tap to remove any excess flour. Dip it in the egg, coat with the panko mixture, and then place on a large plate.
  • Drizzle the onion rings with olive oil and transfer them right into the air fryer basket in a single layer with a little space between each ring. Don’t overcrowd the basket. Work in batches if necessary. Air fry for 8 to 11 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. Repeat with remaining onion rings. Serve with tartar sauce, if desired.


Tip: Once all batches are finished, toss them all back into the air fryer (no need to place in a single layer this time) for 1 to 2 minutes to warm any that got cold from the first batch.
