  • Basically Bloom Sauce is Outback’s version of the classic southern sauce called Comeback Sauce. I wonder why they just wouldn’t call it that. It works perfectly for marking, doesn’t it?

    Voted as the most unhealthy appetizer offered by chain restaurants, Outback’s Blooming Onion is possibly one of the most delicious as well. You gotta have compromises in life and diving into one of these bad boys once a year should be allowed.

    Let’s break this down: sweet onion, dipped in a tangy batter and fried to a golden brown. Yes, it is tasty, but the peachy-orange dipping sauce known as Bloom Sauce is what really makes the dish, peach in color, not flavor!

    Bloom Sauce can also stay on the table to be a dipping sauce for fries, topper of baked potato, and dressing of salad.

    This might not be the exact recipe… but it is darn close. Since I don’t own one of those handy dandy Bloomin’ Onion Makers (I’d die of a heart attack making them for myself at home) I served my Bloom Sauce with Beer Battered Onion Rings and Fried Cheese Curds.

    The key to the unique tang of Bloom Sauce is using the correct chili sauce. Before making this recipe I wasn’t even aware that Heinz or Del Monte made a chili sauce.

    I assumed it was Thai chili sauce or garlic sauce, but it is not. It almost takes like a spicy ketchup or mild cocktail sauce. You can find it in the condiment near the ketchup.

    Tools for making Outback Blooming Onion Sauce:

    Chili Sauce: See my notes above, click here to see what the bottle looks like.

    Mini Food Processor– I use this thing daily! It is by far my most used kitchen appliance, it is small and I throw all the parts into the dishwasher, well except the base and cord, of course!

    Ramekins– I like giving folks their own individual sauce cups. Then you don’t have to worry about double dipping! Ramekins are also great for ingredient preparation and baking mini soufflés.
