Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Mozzarella Rings (Bacon Donuts) (food52)

24 slices bacon
8 slices pineapple rings from can, drained
8 mozzarella string cheese sticks
1 large sweet yellow onion, cut into 1/3″ rings
1 pinch your favorite BBQ rub
4 T your favorite BBQ sauce

Match the onion rings to the size of the pineapple slices, choose rings that have more of a bowl shape to help hold the string cheese in place. Tear the mozzarella string cheese in half. Place one half of the mozzarella in the onion ring and cut the other half to fill in the remaining gap. Place the cut piece filling in the gap. Stack the mozzarella lined onion ring on the pineapple and start wrapping with bacon slices. Use 2 – 3 slices of bacon per ring. Just take it slow and keep it all in place and it will eventually wrap—sometimes it takes some repositioning or restuffing of string cheese into ring. Once all wrapped, sprinkle on some fav BBQ rub on the rings. Start up your grill and cook indirect at 400 F for 30 min. Glaze with your favorite BBQ sauce. Let cool down for a few minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, such as marinara. Serves 4.
