National Onion Rings Day!

 It's National Onion Rings Day Y'all!

(I promise, not all the National Day posts will be about food. I hope!)

I gotta be honest with you all. Up until about seven or so years ago, I would've been all... "Uh, ew! Onion rings?!"
I have no idea why. It just wasn't my thing. I'd always choose fries. I mean seriously, who wouldn't if given the choice? ("Would you like french fries or onion rings?")
Fries, definitely, fries!
Okay, so now I may choose onion rings, but I'm still pretty picky about them.
It has to be the right texture, size, and flavor.
It's either a yes or a big Nope for me. I definitely prefer an actual onion ring versus the minced onion.
There are a few local places that can really persuade me with their recipes.
Jolly's is a local root beer drive-in joint that has some pretty good, golden crispy, just salty enough onion rings. 5/5 for them!
Mad Mike's burgers is another local place that has some pretty good ones. I'd have to go 4/5 for them. Only because they are one of those that have jumped on the "onion rings go on a burger" wagon, and I'm just not feeling that.
Red Robin is my big chain choice for onion rings.
I'm going to have to call out Sonic and Burger King as my No-Go onion rings.
I don't know if it's the whole pre-made, packaged bit or what, but I just can't do them.
Sorry, not sorry.

I've also found a wonderful, keto-friendly recipe for Air Fryer Onion Rings!
London has some great recipes. Make sure to check her page out.

If you don't own an air fryer yet, go grab this one!
Seriously, this is amazing. Easy to use, easy to clean, and it is a 6 in 1!
You can use it as an air fryer, broiler, roaster, dehydrator, baking, and also reheating foods.
Start out using it to celebrate National Onion Ring Day. Tomorrow, try something new!
Let me know how it goes! I'd love to hear feedback and share pics!
Do you have a favorite dipping sauce? I'm pretty basic with Ketchup. What should I try?
