From: Lori Erickson Date: Sat, 18 May 1996 19:59:04 -0600 Last week or so someone requested this recipe. It isnt from the Applebees but hopefully will work. I havent tried it but its from the Taste of Home magazine and so far everything Ive made from there have been wonderful. Enjoy. Leaving the root end intact, peel the outer skin of the onion. Cut a small slice off the top. Starting at the top of the onion and on one side, make a cut downward toward the root end, stopping 1/2 inch from the bottom. Make additional cuts 1/8 inch from the first until there are cuts completely across top of onion. Turn the onion a quarter turn so the slices are horizontal to you. repeat the cuts 1/8 inch apart from each other until there is a checkerboard pattern across entire top of onion. In a small bowl, make dip by combining mayonnaise, sour cream, chili powder and 1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning. Mix well and set asside. In a 1 gallon plastic bag, combine flour and remaining Cajun seasoning. Place milk in a small bowl. Coat the cut onion in flour, then dip into milk and back into the flour mixture. Fry in enough oil to cover onion at 350^ for 5 minutes or until golden, turning once. Remove from oil; place on serving plate. Discard the very center of the fried onion blossom. Place a few poonfuls of dip into the center of blossom and serve immediately. Recipe By : Liars Pub (Bossier City, LA) Posted to Master Cook Recipes List, Digest #90
