In an effort to create an even more over-the-top appetizer, Outback Steakhouse is now topping its famous Bloomin' Onion appetizer with a serving of loaded cheese fries. Although many consumers are looking for healthier options at their favorite chain restaurants, there is still a demand for one-of-a-kind dishes that elevate the traditional dining experience. This outrageous dish appeals to those with adventurous taste buds who are looking for a meal they've never tried before.

The new hybrid appetizer consists of the chain's original Bloomin' Onion, with an order of loaded cheese fries perched atop of the deep-fried onion sticks. The fries are made with bacon, cheese and a spicy ranch sauce to give the appetizer an entirely new flavor. As a representative for the restaurant explains, the outrageous culinary creation "was inspired by Outback's upcoming limited time 'Big Australia' menu which features bigger, Aussie-sized portions."
