Rated: 5.0    Click here to download this recipe

Submitted By:
Susan Fowler Volland

Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Walla Walla Sweet Onions
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano, or 1 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • Non-stick vegetable cooking spray

 

NOTE: For a deep fried onion flower, soad the cut onion in ice water for 30 minutes before frying. Towel dry. Using large fryer with plenty of oil heated to 375 degrees, cook the coated onion 3 to 4 minutes. Drain well and season again with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the over to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a large baking or roasting pan. Peel the Walla Walla Sweet Onions, cut the bottom level, but leave the core intact. To make the flower design, begin as if you are going to cut the onion in half, from top to bottom, but stop cutting 1/2 inch from the core. Cut the onion this way 5 times to form ten sections or "petals." Carefully loosen the petals slightly by rapping the onion lightly on the work surface, and loosening them with your fingers. Remember that the flower will bloom more as it cooks.
  2. Place flour, salt, pepper, oregano, paprika and mustard in a small paper bag. Spray the onions with cooking spray to lightly coat each petal. Put one of the onions in the bag and gently shake to coat. Remove the onion and pat off the excess flour mixture. Place in a prepared pan and repeat with the other onion. Spray the coated onions lightly again with cooking spray to aid in browning.
  3. Bake the onions in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until tender. Serve the onion flower hot, with your favorite barbecue sauce as a dip, or as an accompaniment with pork loin, or grilled steak.

 

Walla Walla

Walla Walla is actually Native American for “many waters.” Located in the southeast corner of Washington state and nestled at the foot of the Blue Mountains, Walla Walla is a community steeped in history and blessed with natural beauty. Walla Walla has often been called an “oasis in the desert” because of the abundance of trees in this generally arid region. The climate is moderate, with average annual temperatures from 32.4 to 88.9 degrees.

Average annual precipitation is 15.96 inches with approximately 20 inches of snow during the winter months. Walla Wallans enjoy a wide variety of cultural and recreation opportunities, with a world-renowned symphony, three colleges, and a population of nearly 29,000.
