Easy Onion Rings No Batter Required!

I love making good food better! Onion Rings are a guilty pleasure of mine. I love eating them but making them can be pretty messy. It is a labor of love to make a good onion ring. I am here to tell you though, you can take beautiful slices of Red onions and make them into something glorious. You only need to know three words.

WRAP IN BACON.

Yep, two wonderful things come together to make a bombshell of an appetizer. The bacon cooks up nice and crispy around the spicy onion. I tell you what, it is truly a beautiful thing. We love reinventing good things, take for instance, these CORNBREAD DRESSING FRITTERS, one bite and you are hooked!

So what am I waiting for? Let’s do this!

How To Make Bacon Onion Rings

This is quite literally the easiest appetizer you will find. Just 5 ingredients and two of those are salt and pepper. Ha! Cook these up on high heat on a baking sheet and in no time you will have a hit on your hands. Sure to be a favorite at any tailgate or get together. IF they even make it out of your house. We pair them up with some good old smoky BBQ sauce or our ALABAMA WHITE BBQ SAUCE and they get gone fast! Here is how you do it!

~Ingredients~

  • 12 slices of Red Onion
  • 2 teaspoons of Garlic Powder
  • 12 Slices of Bacon, raw
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

~Method~

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet with a little nonstick cooking spray or fit a baking rack inside.
  2. Wrap each onion with one slice of bacon, careful to keep the overlapping to a minimum. Place wrapped onion on baking sheet.
  3. Sprinkle each. onion with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Bake 15-20 minutes and carefully turn onions. Bake another 15-25 minutes until bacon is browned and crispy. Cool and serve.

Tips and Tricks

  • No Limit – The recipe says 12 of everything but this recipe is easily modified to make MORE! Trust me, you will probably need MORE!
  • Baking Rack – If you don’t have one, simply spray a little cooking spray on your sheet pan. Just know your clean up will be easier if you invest in a sheet pan that has a baking rack. They are relatively inexpensive. You can find a great one at the bottom of this post. Having these on the rack really helps with even cooking and faster clean up.
  • Customize – Like many of our other recipes, there is no end to what you can do with this recipe. Sprinkle with brown sugar for a candied effect. Marinate your bacon in Italian dressing to change the whole flavor. Get funky with it! Try it and let us know what you did!
