Logan's Roadhouse Restaurant Copycat Recipe

2-3 extra large onions

Dipping Sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1⁄4 cup prepared chili sauce
1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons horseradish sauce

Seasoned Flour:
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper

Onion Batter:
3⁄4 cup flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
3⁄4 teaspoon pepper
1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1⁄2 cups cornstarch
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
12 ounces beer

Dipping Sauce:  Mix mayonnaise, sour cream, chili sauce, cayenne pepper and horseradish sauce in a medium mixing bowl until well combined.Divide sauce among small condiment cups. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Heat the oil in a deep fryer or large stock pot to 375-400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Seasoned Flour:  Prepare the seasoned flour mix by combining flour with garlic powder, paprika, sugar and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Whisk seasonings and flour to incorporate well.

Onion Preparation:  Slice 3/4 inch of the root end of each onion. Make 12-16 slices into the trimmed end working in a clockwise manner. Do not cut completely through the onion, leaving about an inch of uncut onion near the opposite root end. Remove about 1 inch of the center petals from each onion. Toss the onions in the seasoned flour to coat well. Peel back the petals slightly to allow the flour to reach between each petal, but do not remove.

Batter: Combine remaining flour, paprika, pepper, cornstarch, salt, and garlic salt and beer in a second large mixing bowl. Whisk well until smooth. Dip the floured onions in the batter. Allow excess batter to drip off each onion.

Use a fryer basket to carefully place the battered onions, one at a time, into the hot oil. Cook for about 90 seconds, flip and cook for an additional 90 seconds. Transfer onions to a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Place on a serving platter and insert the cup of dipping sauce in the center of each onion.
