    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 Vidalia onion -- (1 pound)
    or any super-sweet onion
    1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    1/4 ounce corn flake crumbs -- (about 1/2 c.)
    1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt
    1 egg white
    Horseradish Dip:
    1/2 cup sour cream
    2 teaspoons mayonnaise
    2 teaspoons horseradish
    1/2 clove garlic -- minced
    Creamy Chili Sauce:
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1/4 cup chili sauce
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne -- or more

    1.Trim the root end of the onion so it upright. Slice 1/2 inch from the top of the onion; discard the papery skin. Cut triangular slices to the center of the onion, slicing from the top to within 1/2 inch of the bottom and working your way around the onion to make several petals.Place the onion in a microwave-safe dish. Drizzle with the oil. Microwave, covered, on High for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until the onion is slightly tender and the petals begin to separate.
    2.Combine the corn flake crumbs, red pepper and seasoned salt in a bowl and mix well. Beat the egg white in a bowl until foamy. Dip the onion into the egg white, coating the petals completely. Place in a 2-cup round baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with the corn flake mixture. Bake at 350 degrees in a preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until brown and crisp.

    Serve immediately with the Horseradish Dip and/or Creamy Chili Sauce.

    NOTES : This isn't as pretty as the Blooming Onions from Outback Steakhouse, but it tastes great and is a good alternative to deep frying.
