Blooming Onion Sauce is a knockoff of Outback Steakhouse’s dipping sauce, which is suitable for the restaurant’s famed bloomin onion. A tasty sauce made with cupboard goods that is simple to create. We created Air Fryer Onion Rings and had to serve them with blooming onion sauce. This quick and easy sauce is also great on French Fries, Onion Strings, and Air Fryer Tater Tots.
ONION RING SAUCE BLOOMING ONION SAUCE Deep-fried dishes and dipping sauces go together, and we love this imitation Outback sauce for onion rings or onion petals. It’s incredibly easy to create with items you most likely already have on hand or can readily acquire at any grocery shop.
Ketchup Mayonnaise Prepared Horseradish Sauce – find it in the condiment isle at any grocery store. It’s the secret ingredient to duplicating the famous sauce with a kick. Granulated Garlic Smoked Paprika Ground Cumin Dried Oregano Kosher Salt Black Pepper
n a small bowl, add mayonnaise, ketchup, horseradish sauce, garlic, smoked paprika, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir together until well combined.
Cover and refrigerate about 30 minutes before serving. Sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks. Serve with onion rings or favorite fried foods. This makes a small batch, really just enough for four servings and it keeps well, so don’t hesitate to make a double batch. It’s good for dipping your favorite fried foods including fried chicken strips, fried shrimp and don’t forget the deep fried okra. We just can’t get enough of it.
I often say that sauces could be their own food group at our house, so much that we even owned our own BBQ sauce business back in the days before we were food bloggers. We are constantly coming up with new flavor combinations and each one seems to be my new favorite. We’ve been making Outback sauce for ages and finally wrote it down to share.
FAVORITE DIPPING SAUCES:
Homemade Barbecue Sauce is so good that we put it on everything, especially grilling recipes. Burger Sauce is another favorite that is like a kicked up version of McDonald’s secret sauce. It’s good on fries too! Honey Mustard Sauce is one of our go-to dipping sauces for air fryer chicken tenders, tater tots and fries.
Cocktail Sauce is great for seafood and hushpuppies and is another favorite to make with horseradish. We live about 2 hours away from the nearest Outback Steakhouse so we enjoy making this copycat recipe at home. It’s a great recipe to have on hand for all of your favorite deep fried snacks and appetizers. If you love homemade onion rings give this easy Blooming Onion Sauce recipe a try. You can even make it ahead to have on hand when the craving strikes.
