Great marinade! I didn't have hickory smoked bacon, so I splashed it with hickory flavored liquid smoke. I also grilled (with the marinade)it in a foil packet flipping it every 5 minutes. The onions were soft & the bacon was tender (but cooked) just like my husband likes it, great with steaks. Thanks SLM!



these were a big hit at our barbeque. several people asked for the recipe. we used vidalia onions and prepared them the night before with the marinade. they were a little tricky on the grill because of the dripping bacon fat, but well worth the effort.



Yum! I marinated the onion/bacon bundles in the refrigerator overnight, baked them in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes, then they went on the grill. My guests raved!
