Outback Steakhouse Has A New Bloomin’ Onion


By Cooking Panda

The world of glorious, over-the-top, fried monstrosities is about to get a whole-lot cheesier. And baconier. And ranchier. And French fryier. Basically everything-ier.

If you’re anything like our favorite foodie celebrity, Chrissy Teigen, you love Outback Steakhouse’s Bloomin’ Onion—a massive plate of fried onion pieces arranged in the shape of a flower and practically begging to be shared. According to People, however, the already outrageous appetizer is about to get a whole lot crazier.

Starting on June 21, Outback will offer an upgraded version of the Bloomin’ Onion. Named the “Loaded Bloom,” this new Franken-food will consist of a classic Bloomin’ Onion topped with spicy ranch, bacon, and the chain’s Aussie Cheese Fries.

Unsurprisingly, the Loaded Bloom contains more than a day’s worth of energy, clocking in at an astonishing 2,360 calories.

For obvious reasons, we suggest sharing Outback’s Loaded Bloom. However, if it sounds like something that you’d enjoy, you’re in luck! It turns out that the over-the-top food is part of a larger campaign by the chain. According to an Outback Steakhouse representative, “The new Aussie-tizer was inspired by Outback’s upcoming, limited time ‘Big Australia’ menu which features bigger, Aussie-sized portions.”

While the choice to introduce the larger, more-caloric portion sizes seems like a strange way to upgrade a menu, we can’t say that we’re not intrigued by the Loaded Bloom. Head to your local Outback Steakhouse anytime after June 21 to check it out for yourself!
