Grilled Onions Wrapped in Bacon

Thursday, July 1, 2010 @ 08:07 AM

Came across this little tidbit recently and just had to share. I love bacon, and I love onions. So let’s fire up the Brinkmann grill & get cooking!

2 large Vidalia onions or other sweet onion

12 apple smoked bacon strips

1\2 c packed brown sugar

1\2 cup cider vinegar

1\4 c molasses

2 tbsp bbq sauce(optional)

24 toothpicks or 3-4 skewers

Cut each onion into 12 wedges.

Cut the bacon strips in half.

Wrap a piece or bacon around each wedge & secure with a toothpick or secure on skewers.

Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

In a small bowl combine the rest of the ingredients. Pour 1\2 cup over your bacon wrapped onions. Cover with foil & refrigerate for an hour, turning once. Cover and refrigerate rest of marinade for basting while grilling.

Drain your refrigerated onions and discard that marinade.  Grill with your bbq grill lid down, over medium heat for 10-15 mins, turning and basting frequently with your reserve marinade.
