Blooming Onion Bites with Dipping Sauce

Dipping Sauce

3 T mayonnaise
3 T sour cream
2 t ketchup
1/2 t Worcestershire sauce
1 T horseradish sauce
1/2 t paprika
1/4 t cayenne pepper
1/4 t black pepper

Combine all dip ingredients and set aside.

Onion

1 large sweet onion
2 c flour
1 t cayenne pepper
1 T paprika
1/2 t each thyme and oregano
1 t ground cumin
1/2 t ground black pepper
1/2 c water
2 large eggs
1 c milk
seasoning salt
Oil for frying

Cut the onion in half and make slices down the onion to make wedges. In a bowl, toss flour and seasonings except seasoning salt. In a second bowl, whisk eggs, milk and water. Ensure onion slices are separated and place the onion wedges in a large ziploc bag. Add about 3/4 c of the flour mix and shake well to coat. Using a fork, gently lift out about 6 onion wedges and put them into the egg mix. Using a fork, remove them from the egg mix and back into the flour mix in the bowl. Toss to coat. Place on a rack while coating all of the onions. Gently tap the rack to remove excess flour before frying. Heat deep fryer or a couple of inches of oil in a pan to 360 – 375 F. Place the onions into the deep fryer or oil in small batches for about 6 minutes or until browned and crispy. Be sure not to overcrowd them. Remove from oil, drain on paper towels and sprinkle with seasoning salt. Serve hot with dipping sauce.
