Air Fryer Frozen Onion Rings. Beer battered onion rings cooked from frozen in the air fryer. If you love onion rings, then you’ll love how easy they are to cook from frozen and how the air fryer crisps them up.
Air Fryer Frozen Onion Rings
Onion rings has been one of my guilty pleasures since childhood. I love the crispy coating and the lovely taste of rings of onion from the centre. Even better if they are served with a yummy dipping sauce.
I was a vegetarian for most of my childhood and the side dish of choice was always the onion rings when I was out for dinner in restaurants. My dad hated them and would always give me the onion rings whenever he had a steak dinner.
But onion rings are not just for restaurants and are fantastic for making at home. Especially in the air fryer, as it crisps them to perfection.
Air Fryer Frozen Onion Rings – Beer Battered Or Breaded?
The chances are, if you have bought a bag of frozen onion rings from the supermarket, they will either be beer battered or breaded.
I like both, BUT I must admit that beer battered taste BETTER.
When you eat breaded onion rings, you’re often feeling like you’re eating diet food. It never quite feels like it has the X Factor and is lacking something.
But beer battered is the crème de la crème of frozen onion rings.
Even Dominic, who claims he hates onion rings, is smitten with the beer battered variety.
Whether you’re cooking beer battered or breaded frozen onion rings in the air fryer, they require the same cooking time. Making it easy for you to mix and match depending on what frozen onion rings you have in the freezer.
Why Air Fryer Frozen Onion Rings?
I love onion rings. But let’s face it, they are a high calorie food. You can grab a 475g bag of frozen onion rings and cook them in the air fryer, instead of the deep fryer for a fraction of the calories.
They are crispy, just like you would expect from a deep fat fryer and really don’t taste any different. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy your favourite guilty pleasure without feeling the same level of guilt.
The Iceland frozen onion rings that I am cooking with, works out at less than 100 calories per portion.
How amazing is that?
How To Cook Air Fryer Frozen Onion Rings?
Cooking air fryer frozen onion rings is very hands free. Throw them in and forget about them. The only major rule is to make sure that you do not over crowd them otherwise they won’t cook evenly and are likely to stick together.
Unlike my homemade flourless onion rings in the air fryer you don’t need to use:
- Olive Oil
As everything is done for you. It’s a case of adding them to the air fryer and let the air fryer make these frozen onion rings taste amazing.
