I forgot to add the dipping sauce in the video! (Recipe Below)

Recipe: You will need 3 things...

1 cup milk
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
Whisk together / set aside

2 cups flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp. dry oregano
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. cumin
Mix well / set aside

Dipping Sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp. ketchup
2 tbsp. horseradish sauce (cream style)
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp dry oregano
1/4 tsp. black pepper
(Pinch of cayenne pepper)
Mix well and put in the frig until onions are done!

Start with a large sweet onion!
Cut off 1/2 inch of the top (not the root end)
In the center cut a 1 & 1/4 inch core out about
2/3 of the way down.

It is "not that important" to take the core out at this time
but you do need that 1 & 1/4 inch circle cut to free up the
pedals when you cut them! ... be careful!

Then on the bottom of the onion lightly trim off the roots
but just lightly!

Turn the onion with the root side up on the table and start
your cut about 1/2 inch away from the root and all the way
down to the table. Start with 4 cuts opposite of each other
like a X ... then cut in between each cut... continue until you
have 16 cuts! All cuts need to be 1/2 inch away from that root!

Turn the onion over and gently spread the pedals!

Take the onion, now open, and dip it in your batter
and shake off the excess, then put it in the breading
and try to get as much breading in between each pedal.
Shake off the bread and put it back in the batter one more
time, then back in the batter. It's called double dipping!

Shake off the extra batter and put it on a plate and try to
fan out the pedals a bit more, then put it in the freezer for
15 minutes! Then bring it out to cook.

In a large pot put about 3 to 4 inches of oil. No more than
2/3 of the depth of the pot so oil doesn't boil over when you
put the onion in. Heat the oil to 350 degrees.

Lower the onion in slowly. Cook it for 10 minutes.
It will start floating after 5 minutes but "do not" take it out
of the oil until 10 minutes is up!

Put the onion on a paper towel for 5 minutes to drain.
Serve with the dipping sauce you have in the frig!

You can do the same process with just loose onion pedals!
See video on how to cut them up! Hope you enjoy this!
