How to Make Grilled Bacon Wrapped Vidalia Onions

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix brown sugar/vinegar/molasses or Maple syrup and set aside.
    Cut Vidalia’s into 1/2" to 1" wedges. Throw away (or chop up for other uses) the few center pieces. You need a flat surface to stick picks through
  2. wrap each wedge center to center (around) with a 1/2 piece of bacon, top to bottom corner.
    Stick pick through bacon and onion. All the way through onion. This holds together while grilling. keeps from falling apart
  3. Lay out a single layer of wedges/wrapped and put a spoonful of sauce mixture on each onion. This is thick and will soak in good. After each piece has sauce on it. Cover and place in fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. Flip container over 1/2 way through if possible so liquid soaks in onions good.
  4. Preheat grill to 300-350*
    It is a lot less messy to grill if you use an aluminum pan with holes in it on the grill. (dollar store) or a nonstick grill pad.
    cook until bacon is done and serve soon as possible.
    You will LOVE easier than i make it sound. ;o)
