Introduction: Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings (Ranch or BBQ Flavor)

This is 100 % pure heart attack food at its finest

Step 1: Things You Will Need

1 large onion
lots of bacon (I used Turkey Bacon)
3 cups Bread crumbs (or toasted bread if you have a food processor.)
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup corn meal
1 TBSP garlic powder
1 TBSP Black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
BBQ Sauce and/or Ranch dressing (The links are to homemade recipes I enjoy)
1 egg ( this is only needed for the ranch if it is to thick)
oil for frying

Wax Paper
Baking sheet

Step 2: Preping Your Rings

1. Slice onion into rings to about the thickness of your finger.
2. If you are using thick sliced bacon, you may want to slice it in half (long ways) so it will wrap easier.
3. Start wrapping onion rings with bacon as tight as you can without causing damage to the bacon.
     (The Tighter you can get the bacon wrapped, the more durable you final product will be.)
    when one piece ends, wrap another piece around it enough so it won't come apart. Repeat this
    process until onion ring is fully wrapped in bacon.
4. Set Rings on baking sheet covered with wax paper, then place in freezer for about 1 hour.

Step 3: Breading and Frying

1. Heat oil in pan
2. Place ranch and/or BBQ Sauce into ring sized bowls (mix egg into ranch if needed to help thin out.)
3. Place ,Bread crumbs, flour, corn meal, garlic powder, pepper & salt into large pan and mix
    thoroughly.
4. Place frozen ring into flour mixture to give it a light coat ( this will help everything stick better)
5. Then place ring into ranch OR BBQ sauce and gently coat it until fully covered.
6. Place coated ring into flour and coat completely. I like to put some mix into my hand and lightly
    squeeze it around the edges until compressed tightly with no wet spots.
7. If there are any spots on your ring left uncoated, dab on more sauce and then press on more flour.
8. When ring is fully coated, place it into hot oil and fry for about 3-4 minutes each side or until golden
     brown. Be careful flipping them though, they can fall apart pretty easy if you do it too soon or mess
     with them to much. I used a spatula to make sure they didn't crumble while flipping and removing.
9. After rings are cooked to a golden brown, place them on a paper towel and pat down lightly to
     remove excess grease. wait 5 minutes to cool, then serve.

You can never go wrong with bacon wrapped onion rings. I have made bacon wrapped onion rings before, my method is a little different.

I don't use any breading on mine and i use pork bacon.

After seeing your bacon onion rings instructable, I felt inspired to make one of my own.

Mind = BLOWN! Excellent recipe. I wonder what they would be like using thousand island dressing? Hmmm, sounds like it's time for some experimentation. :D

BTW, I featured your instructable on the Nerd Eh! blog. I hope you don't mind!

P.S. you could do it with lots of sauces. I was going to do Buffalo Ranch, but didn't. You could try Mustard as well. If you really want to get creative, mix 1 cup of mayo with a 1/2 cup sour cream (as your sauce base), then add whatever seasonings or flavorings you like.
