For All You Bloomin Onion Lovers

I am sure many of you have had the Outback Bloomin Onion. It's pretty fantastic isn't it? But have you really ever thought about what you are really putting in your mouth, the calories, the carbs, the sugar, I could go on but I will let you see for yourself.

Calories: 326 per serving: Total 1,956
Carbs: 20 per serving: Total 117
Total Fat: 27g per serving: Total 161 g
Sugars: 5g per serving: Total 28g
Sodium: 684 mg per serving: Total 4102 mg
I received this info from the Outback Official Website.  (This is just some of the nutritional value)
So I got to thinking how could I make my own version of the blooming onion? Then I remembered when I made the homemade mozzarella sticks and thought, why wouldn't it work for this?
So I got busy in the kitchen and pulled everything out that I needed.
What you will need
1 white onion
flax seed
seasonings ( I used garlic salt and italian seasoning)
1 egg
Preheat oven to 350"
Start by chopping your onion into small pieces (sorry look below I am not sure how to describe how to cut them ha)
Then like I did with my mozzarella sticks dip the onion into the beaten egg and then into the flax seed. (make sure you add your seasoning to your flax seed.
Then put on a baking sheet and let cook for 15 to 20  minutes (once again it depends on the oven.)

Take out when crispy on the outside.
Then enjoy your healthy  " NON Bloomin Onion". I dipped mine in siraracha hot sauce.

Later that evening I got a little hungry and almost went over and got some frozen yogurt but I decided to make me a salad instead. Good choice for me :)
