Paleo Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings -

Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings

  • Author: Raj -


As good, if not better than you’re imagining. Warning: wrapping the rings is a little tedious. But worth it!


  • 2 medium onions (you’re gonna make normal Paleo onion rings too, because how much time and bacon do you have??)
  • bacon – as much as you want (average 1 strip per ring) *thin-sliced is best for wrapping
  • coconut oil, lard, or oil of choice for deep frying (enough to easily cover rings)


  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 3 tsp paprika
  • 1/41/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg


  1. In a heavy-bottom pot, heat oil to medium-high heat (around 350-375 F). Remember that the temperature will drop when food is added.
  2. Cut onions horizontally to form rings.
  3. Separate larger rings (put the middle of onions aside for use in other recipes).
  4. Beat egg in a mixing bowl.
  5. Combine all dry ingredients together in another mixing bowl.
  6. Dip rings individually in the egg.
  7. Dredge ring in tapioca mixture.
  8. Gently drop into hot oil (careful not to splash and burn yourself).
  9. Cook only long enough for the batter to solidify (30 seconds-ish?).
  10. Remove using a slotted spoon and allow to drip on paper towel or newspapers.
  11. When cool enough to handle, carefully wrap with bacon.
  12. Secure with wooden skewers or tooth pics (2-3 in each depending on size – see photos).
  13. Return to hot oil until bacon is cooked (watch closely for the desired doneness. Time will vary with the temperature of oil and bacon thickness. Maybe 1-2 minutes?)
  14. Again remove with slotted spoon and allow to drip on paper towel or newspaper.
  15. Remove skewers or toothpicks.
  16. Serve hot. Great with Paleo Ranch Sauce, garlic chili sauce, and others.
