Wonderful Beer-Battered Fried Pickles
Sorry for the lack of pictures.

I know this calls for beer, but you really can't taste it, and all the alcohol cooks out, so these are safe for the young-uns.

  • Step 1

    Pour enough vegetable oil into a skillet to come up the sides about 3/4" and heat it up on the stove.

  • Step 2

    Whisk together the eggs and beer.

  • Step 3

    Slowly add flour to the eggy beer. You may need more or less than I've said. Make it a little thick. Batter-like.

    Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • Step 4

    Dredge your pickle slices in the batter with tongs and carefully place them in the hot oil. I did between five and eight at a time.

    Turn them after about a minute. Let them sit another minute (totaling 2 minutes cooking time per slice), and then take them out and place them on a paper towel or other grease-sucking object.

    Ta-da! You've got some fried pickles! These lasted all of about ten minutes at my house.

Is it possible to thicken up the batter with more flour and bake them in an oven? I do it with zucchini and squid because my stomach doesn't react very well to frying because of all the oil Happy

These things are freakin' delicious. I crave them all the time. I first tried them in Alabama and was a little unsure of how they would taste but they are AMAZING! I've been looking for a recipe, but I need to buy pickles :O

Reading this is making my mouth water! I eat them at Toot's in my hometown, when I get the chance...but it's been a while.

I made these last week, and they were amazing. A tip i would say is that after you put the leftovers in the fridge (if there are any!), whenever you take them out put them in the over for a reheat. Microwaving them would be kinda violent, and they wont taste as good. :]
