DIRECTIONS

  • Take a small to medium onion and cut the top off (about 1/4th of the onion).
  • Peel away the outer skin but leave the root on.
  • With a knife cut wedge shapes in it.
  • But here's the trick -- take two wooden cooking spoons and rest the onion between them root down.
  • Now slice wedges into the onion as you would cut a pizza.
  • Doing this keeps the onion together at the base therefore allowing a bloomin onion result.
  • Gently (with a knife) separate the sections from one another.
  • Fry each one for a minute or so (depends on the size of the onion).
  • These small onions will open up quickly and cook quickly so please understand this takes a little practice.
  • Once its bloomin take it out of the grease and season it lightly with creole seasoning or cajun spice.
  • You could also add remolade or rosette sauce on top to finish it.
  • Variation: You can also batter them by mixing 1 cup of Bisquick and 1/2 cup of cornstarch in 2 cups of milk.
  • Make a paste first with a little milk before adding all the milk.
  • Soak the onions for about 30 minutes then dust them with flour and seasoning.
  • Open the onion a little as you do it.
  • Let the onions sit at least 5 minutes before frying.
