Some good onion blossom recipes include Pillsbury’s baked onion blossom and the grilled onion blossom from Kraft. Both of these use onions peeled and cut into wedges to help create the illusion of a flower from the remaining inner layers of the onion as it cooks.
Pillsbury’s recipe combines a large sweet onion with 2 tablespoons of melted butter or margarine and 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard. Three tablespoons of plain bread crumbs give the onion an extra crispiness. Peel the outer layer of the onion, and discard the peel. Slice the onion eight times from top to bottom, without completing the cut through the onion’s base, to prepare it for baking. Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, and spread a mixture of butter and mustard over the hot onion after removing it from the oven. Cover the finished onion with bread crumbs for added crunch.
Kraft’s recipe uses a large Vidalia onion sliced three times to create 6 wedges. As with the other recipe, avoid cutting through the last bit of the onion’s base to keep it intact. Place the onion on a large sheet of foil, and sprinkle 3 tablespoons of grated cheese over the top. Drizzle steak sauce over the onion, and grill the prepared onion until tender.
