Hardwood Hickory

No need to go to a lousy chain steak house anymore for a blooming onion, you can now make this iconic dish right in your backyard with minimal effort.

Ingredients

4 CUPS ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR

1/4 cup GRANULATED GARLIC

1/4 cup ONION POWDER

4 tbsp KOSHER SALT

1 Tbsp BLACK PEPPER

1 Tbsp PAPRIKA

2 tbsp CAYENNE

1/2 tbsp GROUND MUSTARD

1 quart BUTTERMILK

1 large Vidalia Onion

1 tbsp Canola Oil

4 Tbsp parmesan cheese, shredded

1 tbsp CHOPPED PARSLEY, to garnish

Preparation

Peel the onion, but do not cut off the root end. Cut into 8 wedges about 1/2-inch from the bottom, making sure not to cut all the way through. Carefully separate the onion sections.

Combine all ingredients for the coating in a medium bowl and mix well. Split the coating in half between two medium bowls.

Pour buttermilk in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Dredge onion into the flour mixture, then in the buttermilk, then back into the flour mixture.

Place the onion root side down onto a sheet tray lines with parchment paper and spray with oil spray.

When ready to cook, start Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 450 degrees F and preheat, lid closed (10 to 15 minutes).

Place tray in the middle of the grill and cook for 30 minutes.

After the onion has cooked and opened up, finish by sprinkling the cheese evenly over the onion, and grill for another 2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.

Garnish with fresh parsley. Serve immediately with lemon wedges and your favorite dipping sauces. Enjoy!
