  • 2-3.5 ounces of raw red onion slices
  • 2 Wasa thins (Sesame flavor is really good)
  • 1/4 cup Simple Girl BBQ sauce (Carolina or Southern)
  • dash of pink salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Simple Girl BBQ rub or
    • smoked paprika
    •  chipotle chili powder
  • Smart Balance or Pam Spray
  1. slice red onions - 1/4 inch is about right (too thin they will burn, too thick they will be soggy)
  2. Pulse Wasa thins in a blender until they are crumbs
Putting it together:
  1. Place onion slices in a bowl
  2. top with BBQ sauce, just enough to fully coat them.
  3. Sprinkle contents evenly and lightly with spices of your choice and salt.
  4. Remove coated onions to a clean bowl, leaving behind excess BBQ sauce (you can use that later on your salad or protein if you want.)
  5. Pour in the Wasa crumbs and gently coat onions, DO NOT over-mix this.  You don't want to spend too much time n this and over-mix because the crumbs will become soggy.
  6. Place coated onions into an air fryer in a thin layer.  Not too much stacking of the onions - single layer as best as you can.
  7. Cook at 350 for 7 minutes.
  8. Halfway through the cooking process, spray the onions with cooking spray and finish cooking.
  9. Remove from the air fryer and don't forget to get the crunchy pieces out of the bottom for extra yummy goodness on your plate!
Makes up to one serving

Chef Notes:
  • If you use less than 3.5 ounces of onions, remember you can put raw veggies and/or lettuce on the plate. (example: 2 ounces of onion, 1 ounce of lettuce, .5 ounces of tomato)
  • Use these crispy onion rings on your burger, pulled chicken or beef, or on a salad.
