      I worked for Outback for years, the blooming onion is breaded, not battered. Skip the beer, flour the onion, dip it in a milk wash, the flour it again.

      really fluffy and crispy batter! used less than 18oz of beer. was pretty good, but will definately up the spices and salt next time, was alittle bland for us. chili sauce was good too, make it a day ahead of time is best in my opinion. thanks for a great supper side!
