Make it yourself version of the classic Bloomin' Onion!
Ingredients
  • 1 large onion
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • ⅔ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup finely grated cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Olive oil cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut about 1 inch off the stem end of the onion, leaving the root end intact. Place on a cutting board, cut side down. Make cuts all the way around the onion, about ¼ inch apart from root end to stem end - making your cuts go almost to the center of the onion.
  3. Whisk together the buttermilk and the egg. Stir together the almond flour, cheeses, parsley, salt, paprika and pepper.
  4. Place the onion root end down in a bowl. Carefully pry the slices of petals apart, being careful not to detach them from the root end. Your onion should resemble a large mum. Spoon over the onion the buttermilk mixture, being careful to get all parts of the onion coated. Sprinkle generously with the almond flour mixture.
  5. Transfer the onion to a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Spray with olive oil.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and spray with oil again. Bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until golden brown.
