It's hard to hold back whenever you see those blooming onions that resemble flower petals at Outback Steakhouse and other classic restaurants. The good news is that you can make them yourself right at home.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Cut the top of the Sweet Onion (1).
Step 2
Lace the onion cut-side down, and, using a sharp knife, make 1/2-inch cuts in a circular motion to create "petals." Flip the onion over and, using your hands, begin coaxing apart its layers.
Step 3
In a large bowl, combine All-Purpose Flour (2 1/2 cup), Cayenne Pepper (1 teaspoon), Paprika (2 tablespoon), Dried Oregano (1/2 teaspoon), Salt (to taste), Garlic Powder (1 teaspoon) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste).
Step 4
Place the onion cut-side down in the bowl, cover with a plate, and shake to coat onion and each "petal."
Step 5
Meanwhile, in a separate medium bowl, mix large Large Egg (2) with Milk (1 cup). Dip onion in egg wash cut-side down; shake off excess egg wash and return onion to flour mixture to coat a second time. Shake off any excess flour.
Step 6
In a deep-fryer or a heavy Dutch oven, heat Corn Oil (as needed) to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), adding enough oil so that the entire onion will be able to float.
Step 7
Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine dip ingredients until well-mixed. Set aside.
Step 8
In the deep-fryer or Dutch oven, add the onion cut-side down in the oil for 2-3 minutes, then carefully flip the onion and allow it to fry for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the batter is golden brown.
Step 9
Move it to a plate covered in paper towels to drain off excess oil and season with a little Seasoned Salt (1 teaspoon).
Step 10
Serve immediately with sauce.
