Bacon Onion Rings Recipe


Okay, we know you don’t NEED more creative ways to eat bacon. It’s excellent no matter how you prepare it. But you simply have to check out this recipe for bacon onion rings. Or, as we like to call them, BACONION RINGS.


Here’s how you make them:




1 pound Farmland Hickory Smoked Thick Cut bacon

2 large onions (Vidalia or otherwise, but quite large)

1 1/2 cups light brown sugar

1/2 to 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic

1/4 teaspoon granulated onion


Cooking Instructions:


1.     Slice the onion into 1/2-inch slabs, remove the peels, and separate into two-ring sections.

2.     Line a pan with heavy duty foil, parchment, or a silpat. In a pie plate, use a fork to toss together the brown sugar, cayenne pepper, salt, granulated garlic, and onion until evenly combined.

3.     Take one slice of bacon and gently stretch it to lengthen it. Wrap it around the onion, barely overlapping the bacon by 1/8-inch or so. If needed, use part of a second strip to finish wrapping the onion. Use a toothpick to secure the bacon to the onion. Place the bacon wrapped onion ring in the bowl of brown sugar and flip. Use your hands to help sprinkle over the onion ring to ensure the entire thing is covered with the brown sugar mixture. Place on the prepared pan.

4.     Repeat with the remaining bacon and onion rings. Place in a cold oven and turn the temperature to 325°F. Bake for 30 minutes before gently flipping the Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings. Bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool in a single layer for at least 5 minutes before serving.
