Blooming onions, Preheat grill or oven to 425°F (if using grill, grill indirectly).
Lightly grease a baking dish (large enough for the onions to fall open).
Peel the skin off the onion.
Slice off a little of the root to create a flat surface.
Cut onion down the middle being careful not to slice all the way through (leave about 3/8” intact).
Rotate the onion and cut in half again, creating 4 quarters (don’t cut all the way through)
Cut each 1/4 in half creating 8 equal segments all still joined at the bottom.
Repeat with additional onions.
Place onions in prepared baking dish, drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. (Use about 1/2 tbsp olive oil, and 1/2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar per onion.)
Season with salt & pepper.
Cover with foil and bake for 25-30 minutes until onions have opened and are nearly tender.
Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes.
