2-Ingredient Bacon-Wrapped Onion Rings in the Air Fryer

2-Ingredient Bacon-Wrapped Onion Rings

yield: 4 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 14 MINUTES

total time: 24 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • one large yellow onion
  • 12 slices of thin cut bacon

Directions

1

Slice onion into 1/4 inch rings. Separate them into rings with two layers. I set aside the super tiny rings to use in another recipe. 

2

Wrap bacon around the onion. Each could take from 1 to 1-1/2 slices of bacon to completely cover.

3

Soak toothpicks in water for a few minutes, then use a couple to secure the bacon.

4

Place the bacon-covered rings in the air fryer in one layer. Note: You may need to cook two batches.

5

Set air fryer to 370 degrees and cook for 11-14 minutes, until bacon is done to desired crispness and the onion is tender.

6

Carefully remove from the air fryer, and place on a paper towel to drain. Remove toothpicks. Serve warm with any desired keto-friendly dipping sauce, like no sugar added BBQ sauce. (Please note: Nutritional values do not include dipping sauces.)

Hungry for crispy onion rings?

Skip the carb-filled breading and try them with BACON! Yep, I recently tried wrapping sliced onion with bacon, and I LOVED it. The result is a delicious and satisfying low-carb appetizer, perfect for keto snacking!

I use my air fryer any chance I can, especially when it’s warm outside, and I loved using it for this idea! The bacon cooks up nice and crispy while the onion gets tender. This is such an easy 2-ingredient idea that tastes great, too!

Hip Tips:

  • To keep toothpicks from burning, soak them in water for a few minutes.
  • Use thinner cut bacon because it cooks faster and makes wrapping the onions easier.
  • You can use the largest rings from two onions and re-use the remaining parts in another recipe.
  • We dipped our bacon onion rings in G Hughes Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce, but pick your own favorite condiment for dipping.
  • No air fryer? To bake in a conventional oven: Place onion rings on a baking sheet pan covered in foil or parchment paper. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 25-30 minutes until bacon is crisp and onions are tender.
