I contributed this dish for a party, and guests couldn't stop raving about it

Onion rings—a dish with a delightfully crisp exterior enveloping tender, sweet onion—have a disputed origin, with both the United States and United Kingdom laying claim. What cannot be debated, however, is their universal appeal as a comfort food and crowd-pleaser. Often associated with the sizzle of deep frying, this version for your air fryer provides a less guilt-laden route to the same satisfying crunch. Perfect for casual gatherings or as a novel side dish, air fryer onion rings deliver the much-loved pub fare experience right in the comfort of your own home, with the added benefit of using considerably less oil.
These air fryer onion rings are versatile and can pair beautifully with classic barbecue, whether it's burgers, hotdogs, or a juicy grilled steak. For a wholesome meal, serve alongside a fresh green salad and a zesty coleslaw. To fully relish the pub vibe, just add a cold craft beer from a local Midwestern brewery. If you’re in the mood for dipping, do consider a homemade ranch dressing or a spicy sriracha mayo to heighten the flavors.
