Mini (Outback Steakhouse) Bloomin’ Onion Bites

Outback Steakhouse’s Bloomin’ Onion is the #1 Restaurant Appetizer in America (according to Outback, anyway) and by far the most popular recipe on Secret Copycat Restaurant Recipe (Click HERE now for Outback Steakhouse’s Bloomin’ Onion Recipe)

While the Bloomin’ Onion is delicious and a perfect way to start a big meal with friends – a party recipe it is not. It’s way too big and messy to make a good “walking-around-and-eating-while-socializing-with- friends” food.

Our buddies at Delish have got our back.

Mini Bloomin’ Onion Bites are everything you love in Outback Steakhouse’s large, serve-the-whole-table-sized Bloomin’ Onions – but in a more convenient, personal bite-sized snack – perfect for any party.

The Full Written Recipe – Ingredients and Directions – is below the video.
