Copycat Outback Bloom Sauce

Copycat Outback Bloom Sauce

A couple months ago I posted about some ‘Zax’ Sauce that I made, and judging by all the responses, people loved it.  I guess everyone loves a good sauce, and often times I find myself loving a sauce over whatever food is being sauced.  The sauce usually packs the punch of flavor, and my husband always says that (insert whatever food here) is just a vehicle for the sauce….whatever the sauce may be.  So I started thinking about what other sauces people love, and immediately I thought about the sauce that gets served with the Bloomin’ Onion at Outback Steakhouse.  It’s tangy and spicy, and really would be delightful on anything you can dip….not just a bloomin’ onion.  Once I looked into it some more, I found out that the sauce is called Bloom Sauce…who knew?!

The base for the sauce is very similar to the Zax Sauce, but the additions are different.  The bloom sauce packs a spicy punch of horseradish, where the Zax Sauce is very mild.  After playing around with a couple different ingredients, I think this sauce is nearly identical to the actual sauce that is served at Outback.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Copycat Outback Bloom Sauce
  1. 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used reduced fat)
  2. 2 TBS creamy horseradish
  3. 1 TBS ketchup
  4. 1/3 tsp paprika
  5. 1/3 tsp cayenne pepper
  6. 1/8 tsp dried oregano
  7. 1/4 tsp salt
  8. 1 pinch ground black pepper
  1. 1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Cover and put in the fridge for at least 3 hours to let flavors meld.
  1. Store in fridge.

  6. HaHa! I made my husband be a hand model on my last post! Anyway I love this sauce! Can’t wait to try it out.

  7. That looks amazing! Pinning!

  8. MMM fried onion ring deliciousness!

  9. All I have to say is that I one hundred percent agree with your husband. Food items are just vehicles for sauce (or dip, I can change it out with dip as well).

  10. this sauce is also great with sweet potato fries

  11. Buy some chipolte seasoning at the bulk store. Add just a slight amount to some mayo and mix. Let is sit in the fridge for a bit. Stir again to make sure it is mixed thoroughly. You will love this! and oh so simple. It has a nice kick to it. You can experiment as to how spicy you want it. You dont need much at all. start with just a bit of the seasoning on the tip of a soon… that’s how spicy it can be. Enjoy!

  12. This sauce is also super yummy on fried pickles!
