Posted: Updated:

Yup! That just happened! Ol, take a deep breath. Since we are so close to Friday, we thought we would give you another reason to look forward this weekend's campfire cookout. This is a side dish that Ron Swanson would approve of. And yes, these bacon-wrapped onion rings are every bit as delicious as they look!

And the best part is; this campfire recipe could not be easier to make!

What you need
• 4 sweet onions
• 1 pack bacon
• 1/4 cup Sriracha Hot Sauce
• 1/4 cup mayo
• skewers


Cut the sweet onions into large onion rings. You can save the center pieces for use in another recipe. Coat the rings with Sriracha Hot Sauce and then wrap each ring in bacon (I use two layers, but feel free to go for it!)

Poke a skewer through each ring (be sure to secure the ends of the bacon with this so it doesn't come loose during cooking) and place it on your campfire or barbecue.

Barbecue on both sides until deliciously brown.

Mix the remaining Sriracha Hot Sauce and the mayo in a bowl for a delicious dipping sauce.


Forego the Sriracha Hot Sauce if you aren't into spicy things. You can switch the spicy mayo dip for blue cheese or ranch.

Bad weather? You can cook these under the grill for a couple of minutes on each side.
