Sooo....I sort of messed this recipe up. And it's all my fault. I didn't follow the directions exactly and that is my bad.
Mistake #1-Cutting off the bottom of the onion even though I was not told to do so in the recipe.
Mistake #2-Using liquid egg whites instead of actual eggs.
These mistakes resulted in a poorly cut onion and the breading not really sticking so well.
And I feel like you all deserve to know that there is a healthier way to enjoy a blooming onion (like you get at certain restaurants)--so I wanted to share this with you. And show you where to find the original recipe that you should FOLLOW. Don't make my mistakes my friends. Enjoy your successful baked blooming onion!
