Applebee's Onion Peels
By Todd Wilbur

Recipe Type: Appetizer
Calories: 540
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Recipe Rating: 4.0 (7 reviews)

Menu Description: "Crisp-fried tender onion strips served with a creamy horseradish dipping sauce."

This signature appetizer from Applebee's is the chain's reaction to overwhelming success of Outback's Bloomin' Onion and Chili's Awesome Blossom. A Bloomin' Onion is sliced with a special device, but cloning Onion Peels requires only the most basic kitchen prep and tools: slice the onion with a knife, separate the slices, dip the slices in batter and fry. Just remember to make the essential horseradish dipping sauce in advance so that the ingredients can mingle in the fridge.

This recipe did not work for me, the batter kept falling off the onion peels. It ended up in the trash can.

The sauce just didn't taste right, I followed the directions to a T. The batter fell right off the onions, it just didn't want to stick. I will try it again though, I think with some tinkering it could be good.
