    Default I'm a fair cook

    if I must say so myself. In fact, I've never really met a dish I can't
    make ... except a Bloomin' Onion.

    I love to eat 'em, but I cannot make 'em.

    IAWTP, I can cook pretty well and haven't met too many dishes I can't
    reasonably replicate. The bloomin' onion is all about equipment.
    LOTS of hot oil needed. (Although I can't say I care for them).

    I prefer White Castle onion chips. We don't need no rings or
    bloomin' this or that.

    This is also how I make fried onions at home. It doesn't take up as
    much room in the skillet as compared to rings. Sure, rings and
    blooms are pretty, but they're not practical.

    I even have a bloomin onion machine which I haven't used (As Seen on
    TV). Bought at a garage sale for $1. The seller hadn't used it
    either.

    I've never had one of those Bloomin' Onions. I'd like to have one.

    I suggest you try one... but only one. While it is a fabulous thing to
    eat, it is so horribly bad for you, only once is a good thing.

    It isn't trolling crossposting if both are interested in the topic.

    I tried to make one once by hand. Not fun. A bunch of floating mess
    in the oil without the desired end result.

    Plenty of grease, nice sized onion. Just didn't turn out right. Not
    sure why.

    And exactly how is a crosspost trolling? Looked like a legitimate question
    to me. Do you mean that just because a post is crossed to other groups that
    are correct for the topic, that it automatically makes it trolling? It
    appeared to me to be someone who wanted to make a blooming onion for a snack
    while watching college football. Maybe he and his college football buddies
    wanted some expertise from a cooking group on how to accomplish that? Does
    that mean he can't share the answer to his question with them? Do you think
    all college football watchers are trolls if they crosspost?

    Oh. I know you. You're that guy who built a website stalking his

    Cheryl, don't try and take me on just for your namesake and out of
    spite of me.

    This was cross-posted to rec.sports.foootball.college. The 3rd most
    troll-ridden group in Usenet history.

    There are recipes for the batter everywhere, and special cutters for
    cutting the onion. I'd think the hardest thing would be to put enough
    oil in a big enough pan to deep fry it .... and then, of course, you
    have the 2800 or 3500 or whatever calories that are in it....
