  • 2 large sweet onions peeled and cut into ½" slices ( or 4 small "bag" onions)
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Toss together all ingredients until onions are well coated with oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Place prepared onions in the air fryer basket and cook for 15 min at 380°F, tossing every 5 minutes.
    I like my onions to still have a little crunch - if you want yours more well done, after the first 15 minutes of cooking at 380°F, lower the temperature to 340°F and cook in 5 minutes intervals until they are to your desired doneness/softness.
