Step 1: Things You Will Need

Picture of 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

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

oh yeah?, what do you do 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.
The mayo and sour cream sounds yummy! I may have to try that.

Oh and Bob and Doug FTW, eh! ;D
