    I heard you can make the blooming onion using the apple wedger. I can see how - but does anyone have the recipe or any recipe for a blooming onion? I also noticed at Wal-Mart the other day that they sell a blooming onion kit in the produce section. Anyway, I thought that would be a fun appetizer to have out at some shows. Any help would be appreciated!! :D

    Bloomin' Onion Recipe

    Here is a recipe for a Bloomin' Onion. It is claimed to be the Outback Original Recipe, but I can't verify if it actually is. I have not made this, since it is deep fried, and I don't really care to do much of that. (Too messy, and too fattening!) I have always wanted to try baking it to see how it would turn out. Just never seem to have the time to experiment. Hope this helps atleast spark some ideas. The dipping sauce sounds good. :) Maybe someone else may have some other versions or some added advice. Good Luck!

    Chili's Awesome Blossom

    I used to love these, especially the sauce. This isn't an official recipe, however, so I can't attest to this since I haven't tried it yet.

    Chili's Awesome Blossom

    Ease of Cooking: Experienced Cook
    Serving Size: 4-6

    This is similar to Chili's Awesome Blossom.

    1 Prepared Onion
    2 1/2 C. Flour
    2 tsp McCormick Seasoned Salt
    1/2 tsp. Coarsely Ground Pepper
    1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
    1 C. Butter Milk

    Mix all dry ingredients together. Onion may be sliced like a blossom by cutting the top 1/4 off, the top has the stem. Then peel and be very careful to leave the root intact. Carefully slice from the top of the onion down but stop about 1/2" before you get to the root, taking care not to cut through the root. Slice the rest of the onion like a pie into many servings. When complete soak onion in cold ice water for 1/2 hr. so the onion's petals will start to open up and bloom. Drain onion and dip in flour mixture and dust well. Dip onion then in buttermilk and back in flour mixture. Place in hot oil and fry until golden. Oil should cover onion. When done drain well and place on plate and cut center out of onion so the petals may easily be removed.

    Dipping Sauce

    1/2 C. Sour Cream
    2 Tbsp. Catsup
    1/2 tsp. McCormick Seasoned Salt
    1/8 tsp. Red Pepper
    1 1/2 tsp. Fresh Horseradish
    1/4 tsp. Paprika

    Mix all together and serve in the middle of the onion blossom. Garnish with paprika and just a dash of red pepper.
