Special Treat for Bacon Lovers


Will they stop at nothing, these bacon-crazed chefs?

I’m not saying I WANT them to, just WOW!

This tasty treat is smoked bacon wrapped onion rings with a sriracha mayo dipping sauce.

In my mind this is either a killer appetizer or a scrumptious side to accompany, say, a bacon-wrapped filet mignon?

This recipe comes to us from our friends at Geniuses!

For an even bigger taste explosion, you can try applewood double smoked bacon or maple hickory smoked bacon to wrap those rings.

Now that’s just good eatin’! Will YOU try these?
