I had the munchies but no munchies so I decided to try some air fried onion & bell pepper rings.

They turned out pretty tasty but were a little softer than restaurant style.

In the 1st pic:

Bowl #1 = flour, paprika, & salt

Bowl #2 = buttermilk, egg, & flour

Bowl #3 = panko, salt, & olive oil

Bowl #4 = panko, salt, & olive oil



In the 3rd pic, I put small onion rings inside the bell pepper rings.



Onion Rings

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large yellow sweet onion, sliced 1/2-inch thick and separated into rings
  • Oil Spray, optional
You need 4 shallow bowls or deep plates.

In the first one combine flour, paprika, and ½ tsp salt.

In the second combine buttermilk and egg, then add ¼ cup of the flour mixture from the first bowl.

In the third combine panko breadcrumbs, ½ tsp salt and olive oil with a fork, until the oil is evenly distributed.

Put half of the panko in a fourth bowl so you can switch to the second part after the first got sticky.

Pat dry the onion rings with paper towels to remove excessive moisture. Using a fork, dredge the onion rings in the flour mixture, drop them in the buttermilk mixture and then dredge them in the panko mixture. (TIP: Freeze the breaded onion rings for 15 minutes on a baking sheet, this helps the panko mixture to stick better.)

Spray Air Fryer Basket with oil spray. Place onion rings in a single layer in the Air Fryer basket. You can place smaller rings inside bigger rings if necessary, just make sure there is space between them.

Cook at 400°F until golden brown and crispy, about 11-15 minutes. Spray with some cooking spray after about 6 minutes. You don't need to turn the onion rings.

Carefully lift out the onion rings with a cookie spatula or fork and serve.
