Bloomin Onion

1 egg
1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1 large Sweet onion
vegetable oil for frying

Beat the egg and combine it with the milk in a medium bowl big
enough to hold the onion. In a separate bowl, combine the flour,salt
,peppers,oregano,thyme,and cumin. Now it is time to slice the
onion-this is the trickiest step.First slice 3/4 inch to 1 inch
off the top and bottom of the onion. Remove the papery skin.Use a
thin knife to cut a 1-inch diameter core out of the middle of the
onion. Now use a very sharp, large knife to slice the onion several
times down the center to create the "petals" of the completed onion.
First slice through the center of the onion to about three-fourths
of the way down.Turn the onion 90 degrees and slice it again in
an "X" across the first slice. Keep slicing the sections in half,
very carefully, until you've cut the onion 16 ties. Do not cut down
to the bottom. The last 8 slices are a little tricky, just use a
steady hand and don't worry if your onion doesn't look like a
perfect flower. It will still taste good. Spread the "petals"of
the onion apart. The onion sections tend to stick together, so you
will want to separate them to make coating easier.

Dip the onion in the milk mixture, and then coat it liberally with
the dry ingredients. Again separate the "petals" and sprinkle the
dry coating between them.Once you're sure the onion is well- coated,
dip it back into the wet mixture and into the dry coating again.This
double dipping makes sure you have a well coated onion because some
of the coating tends to fall off when you fry it.Let the onion rest
in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes while you get the oil
ready. Heat oil in a deep fryer or deep pot to 350*F. Make sure
you use enough oil to completely cover the onion when it fries.
Fry the onion right side up in the oil for 10 minutes or until
golden brown. When the onion has browned, remove it from the oil
and drain on paper towels. Now enjoy!
