Well, I am back from my long hiatus! My dietetic internship keeps me really busy, but I’m ready to start sharing delicious recipes with you again! The latest Picky Girl adventure was a blooming onion, which I think turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. I even got the blooming onion to actually look like a blooming onion and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

This is a healthier version of your standard fried blooming onion, but still gives you that crunchy oniony taste that you love! It is also a perfect snack to serve during your upcoming family or football watching festivities.
Going into this I had no idea how to make a blooming onion, so I went on Pinterest and found this recipe for a Baked Blooming Onion. I followed her directions exactly, I just had to bake mine for longer than she said to.
Hope that you enjoy and stay tuned for new recipes coming your way!
