2695. MOUSSE of PETITS POIS with CRISP BACON and ONION RINGS

serves six

Mousse
3 sheets leaf gelatine
200 grams petit pois
1 bunches fresh mint
1 pinches sugar
75 ml double cream

Onion rings
6 rings of onions
100 grams flour
1 egg, beaten
50 grams breadcrumbs

Garlic croutons
6 croutons
2 tablespoons garlic oil

To serve
6 rashers of streaky bacon

For the mousse: place the gelatine leaves into a tray of cold water for 2-3 minutes, or until softened. Bring the water to the boil in a saucepan, then add the peas and mint and boil for 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Transfer to a blender and blend to a smooth purée. While the purée is still hot, remove the gelatine leaves from the water, squeeze out any excess moisture and add to the purée and blend again. Pass the purée through a sieve into a bowl, then season to taste with sugar, salt and pepper. Set aside to cool completely, about 30 minutes. When the purée is set, whip the double cream to soft peaks and fold it into the purée. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to allow the mousse to set completely.

??For the onion rings: heat a frying pan with 1-2cm of oil. Dip the onion rings in the flour, then into the egg then roll in the breadcrumbs to cover. Fry in the oil for 3-4 minutes, or until golden-brown and crisp. ??

For the garlic croutons: drizzle the croutons with garlic olive oil. ??To serve, spoon the mousse onto a serving plate, top with a slice of crisp bacon and an onion ring and crouton.

Smoked Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings w/ Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce by Grilling 24?7

This recipe right here is why Twitter is so magical. One night I was messing around on it and I noticed that one of my twitter buddies Joe posted a photo of a bacon wrapped onion ring. I have never even considered such a marvelous idea. I went to his blog MmmGoBluBBQ.com and I saw his version of these amazing treats. This immediately went to the top of my to-do list. Today I’m going to show you my take on this amazing appetizer. I added spicy sriracha hot sauce and make a spicy mayo dipping sauce. I could only imagine how amazing these would be at a tailgate and it for sure rivals one of the best smoked appetizers ever – the smoked stuffed jalapeno pepper. Yeah, these are that good!

One of the most beautiful things about this recipe is that it only has a few ingredients. I decided to be crazy and make a dipping sauce for it but to be honest these are so good you can easily eat them by themselves. Bacon, sweet onions, pepper and sriracha hot sauce (or any other hot sauce you like) is really all you need.

Cutting and onion for #onionrings - grilling24x7.com

Sweet onions are a must for this recipe. They are such tasty and mild onions. The first thing you do is cut the onion in half until you get roughly 1/2 inch tall rings. Be careful doing this as you want to keep the onion completely together or else it will fall apart on the grill or smoker. Cut up a bunch of them and then pop the middles out of the onion ring. You’ll want to leave about 2 “rings” of onion on each one. This provides some stability but at the same time isn’t too hard to bite through.

I was thinking of ways to flavor the onion prior to wrapping it in bacon and I wanted to do something with hot sauce. The problem is that most hot sauces are rather runny and I assumed these sauces would drip right off the onion and barely be noticeable. Sriracha hot sauce, on the other hand, is thick so I knew it would stay on the onion the whole time. Brush that hot sauce on thick.

See how the sauce sticks right to the onion?

The next step is to take full slices of bacon and wrap them around the onion ring. I found that for most onion rings I needed 3, yes THREE, slices of bacon to make it all the way around. Once you are done use a long skewer or toothpick to keep things nice and tight. This also lets you grab them off the smoker with tongs without messing up the onion ring.

If you are using a charcoal grill you can do this via indirect heat and some smoke wood on top of the coals. Aim for 250-350 degrees F and grill the onions rings for about 90 minutes. Today, I was using my Ugly Drum Smoker so I loaded the grate with bacon wrapped onion rings and let it go for about 90 minutes at about 280 degrees F. You’ll know they are done when the bacon looks nicely cooked. We all know what cooked bacon looks like! The only catch here is that the longer these onion rings cook, the softer the internal onion will be. So gauge your temperature and time accordingly and don’t worry if they are taking longer than 90 minutes, just keep an eye on the bacon from overcooking. In other words, don’t think that a quicker high heat will produce just as good of an onion ring. The inside onion won’t be nearly as tender. I bet these onion rings can also work in a normal home oven, you just wouldn’t have the smoky flavor.

Right at the 90 minute mark I opened up the smoker to check these guys out and they were perfectly done. It smelled amazing. As I ran inside to get a plate I thought that I might be able to pull of a quick off-the-cuff sriracha mayo that could be a perfect dipping sauce. I eye balled 2 tablespoons of mayo into a small bowl, 1 tablespoon of sriracha hot sauce and about 1 teaspoon of lime juice. Mix it all up and there you go. It’s that easy!
