Take-out Tuesday, Maple Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings

Instead of fast food fried onion rings, try this crazy twist~

Wrap a piece of bacon around several thick slices of onion


leave 2 or 3 of the outer rings together and remove the smaller inner rings and reserve for another use


Gently stretch the bacon so one piece will wrap the entire ring

place rings on a medium hot grill, watching carefully or bake on a foil lined baking sheet at 350 for about 30 minutes until bacon is crisp

The onion is soft and sweet and the bacon is crispy and salty


These are surprisingly light!    If you only eat one 😉
