Which are the Best Frozen Onion Rings?
There are so many brands of frozen onion rings on the market, the best way to find the ones that are good for your crowd is to learn what kinds of coatings onion rings come in.
Beer Battered: ale, eggs, and water-based batter that puffs up away from the onion making them extra-large and extra crunchy!
Breadcrumb Coating: seasoned, fine breadcrumbs or cornmeal clings to the onion for a thick coating. Breadcrumb coated onion rings hold up better for dipping!

What to Serve with Onion Rings
Ketchup is the go-to for onion ring dipping, but why not add a little Tabasco sauce for a zesty dip? Ranch dressing, honey mustard, or even this homemade onion or bacon dip are fun and tasty! And onion rings are a classic side with burgers, hot dogs or even sliders! Round out the meal with a platter of healthy fruit kabobs with a chocolate drizzle and a pitcher of sparkling berry lemonade.
Time Saving Tips
- The key to onion ring perfection is to start with a preheated air fryer. This allows the hot air to immediately seal the outside, making it extra crispy while the inside stays juicy!
- For multiple batches, place air-fried onion rings on a baking sheet in a single layer. Once all the onion rings are cooked, pop them back into a heated air fryer to crisp them up again super fast!
- For seasoned rings, spray pan release on frozen onion rings and then toss them in a zippered bag with your favorite seasoning. We like taco seasoning, chili seasoning, or even ranch dressing seasoning!
