Costco or Sam's have many great frozen appetizer selections. Have these onion rings with chicken taquitos, buffalo wings, spinach dip and chips, frozen mozzarella sticks, or even crab rangoons, etc. Let me know when dinner is so I can make it. 😉

Overcrowding: Do not overcrowd the basket. Place items in a single layer in the air fryer basket or some food will not cook properly or all the way through.
Use a spray oil such as Pam to get food extra crispy and to save on calories.
Use parchment paper on the bottom of your air fryer for easy clean up.
What can I serve with onion rings?

Onion rings also go well with Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets or a nice Air Fryer Steak.
