Two Guys, One Grill: Bacon Bomb & Bacon-Wrapped Onion Rings [VIDEO]
I love to BBQ. Any chance I get to whip up a meaty concoction in my back yard, I take it. My coworker Ron Roth feels the same way.
We are constantly calling each other out Facebook each week, just to show off what we threw on the grill. Because of this, people are constantly asking us for recipes - which got us thinking, "why don't we just record some videos and show the process?"
Each week, one of us will do a main dish, while the other does a side dish. This week, shows you how to make a bacon bomb, while I show you how to make some bacon-wrapped onion rings...Enjoy!
Bacon Bomb -
What You Need -
1 lb spicy ground sausage
1 lb ground beef
1 1/2 lb thick cut bacon
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced red pepper
Small amount of cheese (any kind will do)
Aluminum foil pan
Beer or alcohol
The most difficult part of this recipe is weaving the bacon into what looks like lattice. Whatever you do, begin your drinking AFTER you weave the bacon. I won't give step-by-step instructions for the bacon weave because either i won't explain it right or you won't understand it. I'm going with the latter. You'll catch on when you have to restart a couple of times. Also, remember that it's YOUR meal and any variations you make to the recipe is ok.
Now you can have a cocktail. Then, thoroughly combine the spicy sausage and ground beef. Lay this mixture on the bacon weave you made while you were sober and press it flat so it stretches almost to the edges of the bacon weave. Make a small indentation (more like a groove) the length of the sausage/beef mixture. Place the onion, pepper and cheese in this groove. Carefully lift one side of the meat masterpiece and roll it over so you make a meat sandwich with the bacon weave on the outside. Now you can drink again. Rub some brown sugar on top and place in foil pan. Cook on the grill (with grill lid closed) over medium heat until the center of the bacon bomb reaches 165-170 degrees. Remove from grill and cover. Drink two beers (about 15 minutes) Your bacon bomb is finished.
Slice in half and place one of the halves in a zip lock bacon and refrigerate. You need to do this because you'll want to have some for lunch the next day and your dinner crew will eat everything in sight once they taste it. Have another cocktail.
Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings
What You Need:
1 Big-Ass Onion
1 Pound Of Bacon
Frank's Hot Sauce (duh)
Cut onion into rings. Pretty easy to do, just cut the onion width-wise, then peel the rings right off.
Wrap onion rings in bacon. Depending on the size of the rings, it usually takes 2-3 pieces per ring.
Dip in Frank's Hot Sauce...or whatever flavor you may want to use. I use Frank's for everything, but to each his own.
Throw on grill at medium heat. Cook for about 10-15 minutes, flip, then another 10-15 minutes. Make sure you are watching the rings, as they can burn pretty quickly if you're not paying attention.
Serve with booze, and enjoy!
