Mini Onion Blossom Bites

Our love goes onion on for these lil bites.

Ingredients

  • 10 pearl onions
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • For the sauce:
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup ranch
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chipotle in adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
  • Pinch of salt

Steps

  1. Preheat oil to 375 degrees.
  2. With a sharp paring knife, carefully cut off the non-root end of the onions. Make 8 to 12 small slits around the top of each onion, being careful not to cut all the way through. Use your hands to help separate the “petals”.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Dip onions in egg, followed by the dry mixture. Carefully drop onions into oil and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. They will bloom as they cook. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. In a small bowl, combine all sauce ingredients. Dip cooled onion blossoms in sauce and enjoy!
