"You've likely heard of blooming onion from Outback Steakhouse or the likes of your favorite chain restaurants, but now you can make it right at home. This fried appetizer is a cool little twist on onion rings and is fun to pull apart and dunk in sauce. This restaurant-style blooming onion is sliced into petals, double dipped in an egg mixture then seasonings, and fried to a crispy golden brown. It’s one of the tastiest party appetizers for football parties or gatherings! "
