Outback Steakhouse is celebrating its 20th birthday and with that comes the anniversary of the Bloomin' Onion, the first item ever on the Outback menu. (I mean seriously I don't need to review the onion itself because WHO HAS NOT had one of these yummy babies!) I remember the absolute bliss I felt when I first had this colossal onion!
In honor, Outback has created a select number of special menu items available through April.
Some fun Onion Facts!
- Outback has sold more than 133.5 million Bloomin' Onions.

- Before it is "bloomed," each onion is specially grown to be 16 ounces big and 4 inches wide.
