For the Air Fryer Onion Rings
First, peel and carefully slice the onions into ¼ to ½ inch slices. Separate the slices into rings. Place the onion rings into a large Pyrex bowl, sprinkle with the cornstarch, toss to coat. Set aside.
Then, in a bowl, whisk together the eggs, Frank's RedHot Sauce, and milk until well combined and frothy.
Next, in a separate bowl, stir together the flour and seasoned salt.
In a third bowl, combine the panko bread crumbs and vegetable oil until combined and crumbly.
Preheat your Instant Pot Air Fryer to manufacturer instructions.
Next, bread each onion ring. Using a fork or your fingers, dip each onion into 1-the egg mix, 2-the flour mix, 3-the egg mix, and 4-the panko mix. Repeat until all onion rings are coated.
Place the coated onion rings in a single layer into the tray or basket of your air fryer. Air Fry at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 12 minutes, or until golden crisp. Turn halfway through cooking.
Repeat this process until all of the onion rings are cooked. Serve hot with the prepared dipping sauce.
