Awesome Blossom -- With Dip Recipe
1 sweet onion, texas, vidalia
1 walla walla or maui
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp flour
1 cup cracker crumbs
1 or coating mix
1 oil, for deep frying
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup thousand island dressing
2 tbsp horseradish, grated
Select a well-rounded onion. Peel outer skin off. Leave root intact;
cut off any hanging roots. Using small, sharp fnife, divide onion
into four sections by making 2 cuts crosswise, beginning at the top
and cutting toward root, stopping about 1/2 inch away. Cut each
section twice. Place onion in bowl of enough boiling water to cover
it and leave for 5 minutes. The sections, or "petals" will begin to
open. Remove onion from hot water and immerse into ice water, to help
the opening. Drain well by turning opside down on paper towel. Put
flour into paper bag, add onion and shake gently to coat with flour.
Roll floured onion in beaten egg to cover. Put cracker crumbs or
coating mix in paper bag, add onion and shake gently to coat.
Refrigerate for 1 hour before deep frying in oil to golden brown, 3
to 5 minutes. Cooked onion may be kept for a time in warm oven. The
"Outback Steakhouse" serves this with a delicious hot-hot sauce to
dunk' in. They also add hot spices to the flour and/or coating mix.
