Keto Blooming Onion
I am in love with these Keto Blooming Onions. My breath may be atrocious after I take a few bites, but it’s totally worth it. Blooming onions are like the king of the onion rings and I even can’t drive past an Outback Steakhouse or walk around a street fair without thinking about ‘em.
This keto-fied version of the classic appetizer are a far cry nutritionally from their restaurant counter parts, but right on par in the flavor department.
When Chili’s added their absolute monstrosity of blooming onion to the menu they called it the “Awesome Blossom”, which was dubbed one of the “Worst Appetizer in America” by Men’s Health in an issue from 2008.
What made it the worst? I’m glad you asked… if you ate the whole thing by yourself you would consume over 2700 calories, 203 grams of fat (not healthy fats either, lots of trans fat) 194 grams of carbs, and as much sodium as 67 strips of bacon.
If you ate that entire thing, God rest your soul, but you could eat eat an entire blooming onion using this recipe if it fits your macros and not require immediate medical intervention.
