More About This Recipe
You've seen the large blooming onions at happy hour. Now they're perfectly mini for a party!
Smaller size, same amazingly addictive snack.
I’m fairly certain that my childhood consisted of just the following foods: pizza, spaghetti, those yogurt cups with sprinkles on top and blooming onions. Every time we went to a restaurant that served the petaled fried onion with creamy dip on the side, we ordered it and I devoured it. It’s a memory that I treasure with much deep-fried nostalgia.
In recent years, however, those blooming onions have been fewer and farther between in my diet. But every once in a while, I get a serious hankering for one. Since I probably shouldn’t just make one giant onion and eat it all myself (or should I…?), I love to make this recipe for Mini Blooming Onions with a creamy, spicy dip on the side. The bite-sized version makes this perfect for sharing the deep-fried goodness with a crowd!
