Recipe: A Bloomin Onion

Title: A Bloomin' Onion
Categories: Appetizers, Vegetables
Yield: 6 servings

Water; ice 2 tb Flour
Water; boiling 1 c Cracker crumbs
4 Eggs; beaten

Select a well-rounded onion. Peel outer skin off. Leave root intact and cut
off any hanging roots. Using a small, sharp knife, divide onion into four
sections by making 2 cuts crosswise, beginning at the top and cutting
toward root, stopping about 1/2" 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 water and
immerse into ice water, which will further the opening. Drain well by
turning upside 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 in bag, add onion, and shake gently to coat.
Refrigerate 1 hour before deep frying in oil to golden brown, 3 to 5
minutes. Cooked onion can be kept for a time in warm oven. This recipe was
posted some weeks ago. It did not include a sauce. If I remember correctly,
the poster said to serve with Ranch Dressing for a sauce. I would just let
my imagination go, on the sauce! I haven't tried this yet, even though it
is tempting...I have to watch out for my husband's diet, so we try to stay
away from fried things. Sorry, I don't know the name of the original
poster, but that is his/her ID, after the recipe title. Barb Day
