This is a short-but-sweet kind of post.
I love those amazing deep-fried blooming/blossoming onion appetizers that they have at steak houses. They consist of a sweet onion (we used a small vidalia), that’s cut so that the slices form petals. This is then breaded and deep friend to form a beautiful flower that is made up of little pieces of battered and fried onion. Paired with a horseradish & mayo dipping sauce, it’s positively heavenly.
I had a craving, so after a cursory internet search, I came upon this recipe here:
And while I followed the recipe (I doubled the breading mixture, per comments), I felt that a little photo-tour would help with those like me who were attempting this deliciousness for the first time.
