The guy on the Food Channel made it look so easy to make bacon wrapped onion rings!
So easy! You just wrap the bacon around the onion ring, slide a toothpick through the connection where the strips of bacon begin and end. Easy. Then bake at 350° for 20 minutes.
Easy. Well, not so much.
Ironically, my troubles probably stemmed from the fact that I stopped in to see my friends at Port Moody’s Meat Craft and bought 8 strips of their finest, house made, thick cut bacon.
If I had just bought the regular grocery store variety of bacon I probably would have had more success. The Meat Craft bacon was too good. Unlike grocery store bacon, the Meat Craft bacon had actual meat on the bacon! Have you ever complained that bacon has too much meat?
I tried. I really tried.
I will try again with softer, more fatty bacon next time!
