1. Blooming-Style Onion: A Feast for Your Eyes and Taste Buds

Have you ever heard of a blooming-style onion? This dish is not only delicious, but it is also visually stunning. The concept originated in the United States and gained popularity in the 1980s. Slicing an onion into a beautiful blooming shape, coating it in a unique blend of breading, and deep-frying it to perfection creates a dish that is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the taste buds. Although one of the founding members of Outback Steakhouse gets credit for the blooming onion, chef Jeff Glowski is the original creator. The now iconic dish is known as Onion Mum in Australia, even though the dish is an American creation.

One of the best things about blooming-style onions is that they are perfect for sharing. This dish is ideal for friends or family to enjoy together. It is also a great appetizer to kick-start your meal. The dish is not only delicious, but it is also a conversation starter. You can impress your guests with the beauty of the dish and its unique preparation method.

At Crimson Coward, we put our spin on this classic dish to ensure that every bite is a perfect blend of flavors and textures. We use fresh onions and a secret breading blend to create a crispy outer layer that complements the soft and juicy onion. Our blooming-style onion is served with a side of our signature dipping sauce, which adds a tangy kick to the dish.

Try the Crimson Onion Joey Style at any of our restaurants for a heartier, fully dressed, blooming-style dish. It features boneless chicken breast, our signature Crimson sauce, slaw, pickles, and cheese, served over a Crimson Onion!

Overall, blooming-style onions are a must-try dish for anyone who appreciates the art of cooking and enjoys visually stunning dishes. At Crimson Coward, we take pride in our version of this classic dish and invite you to come and experience it for yourself.

3. Fried Green Tomatoes: A Southern Classic

Fried green tomatoes became an iconic Southern dish thanks to the early 1990s movie Fried Green Tomatoes. The movie is inspired by the book Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe. Although not historically a Southern dish, fried green tomatoes are associated with Southern roots due to the book and movie.

Fried green tomatoes are a dish that has become synonymous with the Southern United States despite immigrant roots. The dish is made by slicing unripe green tomatoes, coating them in a flavorful cornmeal breading, and frying them to a perfect crispness—the tangy and slightly tart flavor of green tomatoes pairs wonderfully with the golden crunch of the coating.

One of the things that makes fried green tomatoes so special is their versatility. They are perfect as appetizers, side dishes, or main course. They can be served as a snack or as a larger meal. They are also a great way to use up any unripe tomatoes left in your garden at the end of the season. In conclusion, fried green tomatoes are a new Southern classic that has become a beloved dish nationwide.
