Air Fryer Frozen Onion Rings are amazing in the air fryer!! Frozen Foods were made for the air fryer. Cooking frozen foods in the Air Fryer Are Life-Changing! My two favorite words, easy and delicious.

One of the first dishes that I ever made was frozen onion rings. The first time I made them, I was so disappointed. I put aside my air fryer for about a week, and then came back to them, basically because my youngest was like please mom, can I have some onion rings. Obviously, I agreed, and the rest is really history. But doesn’t everyone love a good Air Fryer Frozen Onion Ring?

If you are like me, which you probably are reading my website, you are always looking for something to make for dinner. Usually, something out of the freezer or what you have in the pantry. I always keep a bag of onion rings in the house because they go with almost everything.

Even if I am grilling the steaks, they go perfectly, and who has time to preheat the oven, anyway.

How Do I Get Really Crispy Onion Rings In The Air Fryer-
One of my biggest tricks is to either spray the frozen onion rings with olive oil. Or what I do, is add the frozen onion rings to a large mixing bowl, add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and use my hands to coat the onion rings.

How Do I Reheat Onion Rings In My Air Fryer?
This is a great question, especially if you are onion rings left over from a fast-food restaurant.

Start again by preheating your air fryer to 350 degrees F, for about 5 minutes. If you have a preset button, just press that; remember, every air fryer is slightly different.

Set the refrigerated onion rings for about 4 to 5 minutes.

What Are Some Good Dipping Sauces for My Onion Rings?
My kid’s favorite, of course, is ketchup, although here are some other great choices.

  • Ranch dressing
  • Tartar sauce
  • Honey
  • Cocktail Sauce
  • Onion Ring Sauce

Can I Cook These In The Oven?
Yes, most packages have oven instructions on them.
