Bloomin’ Onions



  • 2 onions

Wet Mix

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg

Dry Mix

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Cut off the tops & outer layer of the onions.
  2. Placing the onion cut side down & cut the onion starting 1/2″ below the root going all the way down to the cutting board. Repeat this cut 10-14 times around the onion.
  3. Flip the onions over & use your fingers to gently separate the layers.
  4. Mix all of the wet mix ingredients together in one bowl.
  5. In another bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients together.
  6. Dip the onions once in the dry mixture, once in the wet mixture, and once more in the dry mixture.
  7. Fry each onion for about 5-7 minutes in very hot oil (about 375).

I made a simple dip to go along with the onions – 1 part mayo, 1 part Greek yogurt, and 1 part sriracha sauce.
