Leave it to the chefs in Food Network Kitchen to take a restaurant classic with a cult following and remake it for home cooks, stripping away the tricky chef techniques and leaving just the over-the-top flavor you crave. That's the case with this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week, a crispy onion-and-dip starter inspired by the appetizer served at a steakhouse chain. This next-level recipe, featured in Food Network Magazine, features a sweet onion sliced bloomin' style, then dredged in a cayenne-spiked batter and fried until golden brown.
