Boring old fried onion rings are sooooooo yesterday. No one needs all that greasy breading. Instead, you need all that greasy, crispy BACON. These bacon-wrapped onion rings are the only way you should be eating your onion rings from now on. Everything is better with bacon, you all know that! These onion rings might look a little intimidating to make, but they are so much easier than dragging out the fryer and going through the batter process normal onion rings require. Instead just wrap these bad boys up and bake until they are crispy and delicious. No possible oil burns and no risk of a grease fire. Which for someone as clumsy as myself is a serious MUST.
The hint of BBQ sauce and smoky flavor of the bacon give new life to onion rings that is downright addictive. Trust me when I say you won't regret diving into a bowl of these savory rings of bacon-wrapped onion rings (aka serious deliciousness) for a second; and if you do, hand them over, I'll finish off the rest for you.
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line with foil and place rack on baking sheet.
Brush the onion rings with BBQ sauce, then carefully wrap in bacon. Start by wrapping one end of a bacon slice snuggly around the onion ring so it just slightly overlaps itself. You’ll use about 1 1/2 to 2 slices of bacon per onion ring.
Place the wrapped onion rings bacon-end side down on the rack and bake for 20 minutes. Flip the onion rings and bake another 15 to 20 minutes. Finish the onion rings with a few minutes under the broil if you like crispier bacon. Remove from oven and rest at least 5 minutes. Serve with more BBQ sauce if desired.
