~~~Bloomin Onions Anyone??? ~~~




Yesterday I went to Mary's to spend the day with her and Christal... We sat around just chatting for the longest time when Mary said "HEY! How about we make some Bloomin' Onions?" We I have had Blooming Onions from Outback Steakhouse and loved them so I right away jumped up & down saying yes, yes, YES!!! So off to the kitchen we headed to make Bloomin' Onions!!!

First thing you do is to buy a couple of very LARGE Vidalia or Sweet Onions and this GREAT mix that is over on the right in the picture ................





First you peel the onions and then leaving the root on cut them into 12 equal sections



soak them in ice water for at least 30 minutes or longer and then dust with dry mix



After that you dip them in the batter making sure all your petals are covered


Dust them in batter once again and then deep fry them for 5 minutes



and Walla!!! One delicious Bloomin' Onion




Thank you so much Mary for making these delicious Bloomin' Onions BUT I think I'll continue to buy them at Outback or Chilis' ~~~ That's a lot of WORK!!!


And as you all know I am retired and allergic to work!!!

Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!

Now you've made me hungry and I haven't even had my breakfast yet!

Thanks for showing how to make them.

Maybe it's not too much work, except for the clean up.

I've heard of Bloomin Onions before but I have never had them. It sure looks like a lot of work and a little on the messy side. Glad you had fun making them and eating them.

Yummy! that looks so good and I haven't had one in so long!
Donna, I've read that book and what a wonderful book. Gave it to my sister in law to read before she passed away but I'm not sure she had time to read it. She knows now, Heaven is really for real!
You're a doll.

My gosh!! I didn't know I was missing all this food prep...I will have to stop by more often! I will have to look at your new site and see if I can add some of our favorite places in there.

The only time I've ever tasted Bloomin' Onions is at the Outback as well and I agree with you, they are soooo delicious. Never tried making my own but as you say, it looks to be an awful lot of work! I bet they tasted even better, though, because they were shared with good friends:-) xoxo
