1 jumbo (1 lb.) sweet onion


1 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original version)

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. ground paprika

1/8 tsp. black pepper

1/2 cup fat free liquid egg substitute
(We used Better'n Eggs)

Dipping Sauce

3 Tbsp. fat-free mayo
(We used Fat Free Miracle Whip)

1 Tbsp. ketchup

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/4 tsp. chili powder

1/8 tsp. sage

This recipe was inspired by one that we were told about on Hungry Girl (Hungry-Girl.com). However, we found the original recipe didn't coat easily and our tasters wanted a little more bite in the sauce. So here it is, our version of crunchy and delicious Bloomin' Onion Petals.

1. Preheat over to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Take the onion and slice the top and bottom off. Remove the outer layer and cut the onion into 8 wedges. Separate each layer of the of the onion into individual petals.

2. In a blender or food processor grind up the next 4 ingredients, Fiber One cereal through black pepper, into a flour like consistency.

3. Setup two bowls and a baking sheet. In the first bowl pour the egg substitute. In the second bowl the breading. Set the baking sheet beside the breading bowl. Then take each onion petal and fist dip in the egg substitute, then dust with the breading and finally put it on the baking sheet.

4. Take the baking sheet of onion petals and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

5. While the onion petals are baking, mix the five dipping sauce ingredients, fat-free mayo through sage into a small bowl. Once the onion petals are done baking, spread them around the bowl of dipping sauce and serve immediately. This tastes best when served hot, so don't let it sit around.
