Blooming Onion Recipe

Would you like to have a blooming onion recipe so you can make something delicious with large onions? We use the Texas 1015Y organic onion.  This onion is called 1015Y since it is planted in Texas in October. 

One of the most popular onions in the country, yellow 1015Y gets sweeter as the bulb gets larger.

A short-day variety, this Texas Super Sweet onion grows best in Southern regions. Short-day varieties start bulbing when daylight length reaches 10 to 12 hours.

They take about 110 days to mature in the South and just 75 days in the north. The earlier you plant them, the larger they get, but they don’t grow as big in the northern states.

Mature 1015Y onions store for up to two months.

We will direct sow are 1015Ys.

Till your garden so that you have about eight inches of good, loose dirt.  Make sure you remove all rocks and mulch.  These can hinder the growing roots and make the onions grow crooked and thin, instead of straight and round.

Make rows one foot apart for three feet.  Then you will want a foot path in order to work in your beet patch.  Make a V trench using a hoe, about 1/4 inch deep.  The seeds do not need to be very deep.

Plant the seeds about three inches apart.

Seeds should germinate in about seven days but can take up to 21 days depending on temperature, water and soil conditions.  When the seeds germinate and break surface, thin to eight inches apart.  The distance between the onions will have a lot to do with the size of the onion.

Once the little plants form, keep the soil moist, just like the way brown sugar feels in your fingers.  When the bulb starts to form, make sure you keep it covered with dirt.  If it is not, the uncovered part will not develop correctly and will be hard as well as inedible.

In about 110 days the onion tops will bend over.  This is the sign that they are ready to be harvested.

Blooming Onion Recipe

For the blooming onion recipe, you will need:

  • 1 large yellow onion, preferably garden-fresh
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut off about 1/4-inch of the top of the onion until a few of the inside layers are exposed. Be careful to cut the top side, not the root side. Peel the outermost layer of the onion down to the root, leaving the root as is.
  2. Lay the onion cut side down on the cutting board. Remember not to cut all the way through, as the onion must stay in one piece to work. Cut  the onion into 16ths, beginning with your knife 1/8-inch away from the root and cutting straight down to the cutting board, being careful not to cut the bottom portion of the onion. You can cut more sections if you have an especially large onion. Once all cuts are complete, turn the onion over and set on a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Use your fingers to separate the onion petals and open it completely.
  3. In a small, combine breadcrumbs, paprika, Cajun seasoning, and salt. Beat the eggs together in a separate bowl.
  4. Coat each onion petal with beaten egg, and then sprinkle liberally with the breadcrumb mixture. Work from the bottom to the top in each section. Brush the entire onion one more time with the beaten egg and sprinkle it again with leftover breadcrumbs.
  5. Bake covered with aluminum foil for 5 minutes, then uncovered for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the onion is tender and the edges are browned.
  6. Serve with your favorite dip.
