Chop the onion ends off and then halve the remaining.

Carefully remove the outer rings of the onion so that you have 4 – 5 large rings to work with.

Wrap the streaky bacon around the rings – use a toothpick to hold the bacon in place if you need to – some rings will require more than one rasher of bacon. 1 pack of bacon should cover 5 large onion rings.

Braai for 15 minutes or until the bacon is cooked and crispy!

Tip of the day

Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
