Bloomin' Cabbage Wedges
The Bloomin’ Cabbage is a nod to the classic Bloomin’ Onion. Instead of frying a whole cabbage, we broke it into wedges to make it easier to eat and fry. Believe us, this is one fried treat you’ll want to try.
Thanks to the flavorful breading this recipe is delicious on its own, but you can also serve it with your favorite dipper. (No surprise, Haley enjoyed dipping in mayonnaise.)
Whisk together flour, cornstarch, 2 Tbsp. salt, garlic, cumin, paprika, thyme, oregano, and cayenne in a bowl. Whisk together milk and egg in a second bowl.
Dredge cabbage wedges in flour mixture; shake off excess. Dip into milk mixture; let excess drip off. Return wedges to flour mixture; shake off excess. Transfer prepared wedges to a baking sheet and repeat process with remaining wedges. (Be sure to distribute the flour and milk mixtures between the layers of each wedge at each stage.)
Chill wedges while heating oil.
Heat 2½–3 inches oil in a large pot (at least 6 inches tall) to 375°. Carefully add two wedges to pot, and fry until cabbage is tender and golden brown, 3–5 minutes, maintaining oil temperature of 350°.
Transfer fried wedges to a paper-towel- lined plate to drain; season with salt and Parmesan. Repeat frying with remaining wedges. Serve wedges with your favorite dipping sauce.
