Bacon Bangles

Back to recipe


For Bangles:

  • 3-4 large yellow onions
  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • Sweet barbecue rub of choice, to taste (optional)
  • Two 12-ounce packages of thin cut bacon

For Cracked Pepper Maple Syrup Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cracked pepper


  1. Cut 1/2" to 3/4"thick slices of onion.
  2. Separate the rings and lay them out so that there is a gap between the two layers of rings about 1/4".
  3. Season breakfast sausage with barbecue rub and then stuff the sausage in between the onion rings.
  4. Take 2-3 pieces of thin cut bacon and wrap them around the sausage stuffed onion rings. Note: Thick bacon doesn't do as well for wrapping.
  5. Season the rings with an additional shake of the rub. Set on indirect heat to grill. To accomplish this, set one side of your grill on high and leave the other side off. Place the bangles on the non-heated side of the grill and cook for 30 to 45 minutes until the bacon has crisped up. You can also cook these in a heated 350 F oven.
  6. Make the dipping sauce by combining all ingredients. Either drizzle the sauce onto the bangles or serve as a dipping sauce.
