Deep Fried Onion Blossom

Bring this restaurant favorite home.

Yield: Serves 3 to 4


1 large onion

- Canola oil or blended vegetable oil for frying

2 eggs

1/2 cup beer

1/2 cup milk

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oil to 375 degrees F. Peel onion and cut the bottom off. Cut the onion into 3/4-inch wedges without cutting all the way through the base. Soak onion in ice cold water for approximately 7-12 minutes, until wedges open. Drain onion and pat dry. Mix together eggs, beer and milk. In a separate bowl mix flour, baking soda and black pepper.

Dust the onion with the flour mixture. Dip the onion in the batter. Re-dust with the flour mixture. Shake off the excess. Make sure that the onion is completely coated.
Carefully lower the blossom into hot oil being very careful to avoid splattering. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn onion and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until golden brown. Lift the cooked blossom from the oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
