These bacon onion rings are such an easy keto appetiser! Crunchy, salty, savoury bacon rings filled with sweet and fragrant onions, served with creamy chimichurri dip.
Here are some of my top tips for the perfect crispy bacon onion rings:
- Whatever onions you choose (red, white or yellow), make sure you choose the largest and firmest pieces. The bigger the better! I like red onion because they are sweeter and perfectly complement the saltiness of the bacon.
- Use generous amount of bacon. You need to make sure the slices overlap as you wrap the bacon around the rings. If you you don't use enough, the bacon will shrink exposing the onion.
- Place the bacon-wrapped onion rings into a cold oven (not preheated) and only then turn the oven on. This will ensure that the bacon slices won't shrink as much and the bacon will cook more evenly.
- You can use regular thin cut (streaky) bacon, smoked bacon or pancetta slices. If you use pancetta, which is very thin and burns easily, reduce the temperature to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional).
You can keep these onion rings simple and eat them on their own, or serve with some an easy high-fat dip. I served mine with homemade Chimichurri Mayonnaise by simply mixing some avocado oil mayonnaise with a few tablespoons of homemade Chimichurri Sauce. You could keep the dip simple by adding some garlic into the mayonnaise or making this easy Garlic Mayonnaise from scratch.
This is the perfect game night keto snack that's grain-free, sweetener-free, dairy-free and gluten-free. Enjoy!
