If you’re a low carb eater, you probably thought you’d never eat onion rings again. Well, you were wrong. These low carb onion rings pack all the flavor of the less healthy varieties. And in my opinion, they taste way better — without the heartburn and weight gain. Win-win!
For either recipe you can serve these with a low carb, high fat dip like guacamole, ranch dressing or sugar free ketchup.

1⃣RECIPE 1: Paleo Onion Rings
Servings: 4 (3 large rings per person)
Carbs per serving: 1.68
Net carbs per serving: 1.38
1 Large onion
1. Preheat oven to 375. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Slice onions into ¼” slices; use only large rings and save remaining smaller circles for another dish.
3. Wrap each onion ring with a strip of baking, pulling the bacon taught as you cover the onion. Depending on the size of the onion, you may have to use 2 slices. Secure the bacon with a toothpick.
4. Place the bacon ring on baking sheet and repeat for remaining slices of onion.
5. Cook for 25-30 minutes, until bacon is crispy. Recommend placing rings on lower third of oven, as that is closest to the heat source.
6. Remove from oven and let cool for 3 minutes. Remove toothpicks (giving toothpicks a twist makes them easy to remove) and serve.
