This past summer, one of my friends invited me over for a barbecue at his house. I happily accepted his invite knowing that he could cook and that there would be tons of good food there. After I arrived and greeted everyone I knew, I went into the kitchen to fix myself a plate. The first thing that caught my eye was a crispy golden brown fried onion. It had been years since I had previously gone to outback steakhouse and I completely forgot how good that their Bloomin Onions were. I excitedly put a few of the pieces on my plate and couldn’t wait to try them once again. After my first bite, I had found my old-found love for the delicious appetizer and immediately asked for his recipe. The following week, I went to the store and gathered my ingredients.

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
