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!
Trust me, you’ll be craving these keto bacon-wrapped onion rings all the time.
The air fryer is my favorite kitchen gadget!
I use my air fryer any chance I can, especially when it’s warm outside and I don’t want to heat up the house with the oven on, 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!
Tips for making the best keto bacon-wrapped onion rings:
- To keep toothpicks from burning, throw them in a bowl and soak them in water for a few minutes before inserting them into the bacon-wrapped onion slices.
- 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.

Check out what my teammate Jenna had to say after making these onion rings:
“This is officially my new favorite snack! As if onions rings couldn’t get any better, let’s replace the breading with bacon?! Yes, this is so good! Thanks to the easy-to-follow tips, this was simple to make a nice size batch too!
I did end up using thick-cut bacon (it’s all I had) and it worked, but I think a thin cut as suggested would definitely be the better route as it’s easier to work with and crisps up faster. For the dipping sauce, I mixed my favorite sugar-free ketchup with my favorite sugar-free bbq sauce! YUM!”
