Sriracha Bacon Onion Rings

I had seen a few different recipes for this interesting hors d’oeuvre, like the one from grilling24x7.com or thekitchenwhisperer.net. I decided to try my own hand at making a quick and fun treat (for a Game of Thrones viewing party!) Here’s what you’ll need:

2-3 large Vidalia onions
4-6 tbsp sriracha hot sauce
1 lb bacon
1 cup brown sugar
2 toothpicks per O-ring (skewers would be better)

Line a metal baking pan with aluminum foil. Place a cookie cooling rack or roasting rack on top of the pan to allow the juices to drip down. Preheat an oven to 400 degreess.

Peel the onions and slice into 1/2 inch rings. Remove the centermost portion of the rings, leaving at least 2-3 layers per ‘O’. Brush each O-ring with sriracha.

Next, pour brown sugar into medium sized glass bowl. Dip a slice of bacon in the sugar, coating gently on each side.

Wrap the slice of bacon around an O-ring and secure with a toothpick (or two!) Note: Using skewers would probably make handling easier! Line the O-rings on the rack, and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven, gently turn each O-ring, and place back in oven and bake for another 20-30 minutes or until crisp. These would be excellent on a grill, or with a spicy mayo or aioli sauce!
