These Sriracha bacon onion rings on the Char-Broil Big Easy give new meaning to kicked-up goodness. I mean, come on, what could be better than Sriracha and bacon? I have to tell you, these rings don’t get all super crispy like deep-fried, but they more than make up for that with flavor. You can’t possibly make enough of these to satisfy your guests!
Basically, you can serve the Sriracha Bacon Onion Rings on the Char-Broil Big Easy ‘as-is’. Or do as I did and mix a few squirts of Sriracha and Ranch dressing together and use that as a dipping sauce. The cool Ranch will help cool off the spicy goodness, but it doesn’t hide it. Heck, I added Sriracha to it so it’s not like it’s wimpy.
You can’t fit a whole bunch of Sriracha bacon onion rings on the standard basket that comes with your Big Easy. To really make a batch, you’ll need the bunk bed basket. It adds a lot of cooking room.
Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.
Sriracha Bacon Onion Rings on the Char-Broil Big Easy
- 2 large Vidalia onions
- Sriracha sauce
- 12 slices bacon
- Fire up your Big Easy.
- Slice the onion into thick ‘steaks’ about 1/2″ thick.
- Push out the inner rings (save for another use), leaving the last two outer rings still together as one. Do not separate them. Note: If the rings are particularly thick then you can separate them as cook them as single rings.
- Squeeze some Sriracha into a bowl that’s just big enough to fit an onion ring.
- Place the ring into the sauce. Using your fingers, spread the sauce all over the ring. Flip the onion and repeat. Get it coated, but not drenched.
- Wrap bacon around the rings. Don’t wrap too tightly since the bacon will shrink. Don’t wrap it too loose or it’ll fall off.
- Brush (or just use your fingers) more Sriracha on the outside of the bacon.
- Place the rings on your Big Easy rack and lower into the Big Easy.
- Cook the rings until the bacon just starts to crisp. Gently flip them and cook another 10-15 minutes. Remove to a baking sheet and let firm up a bit.
