Recipe - 10 minute, 5 ingredient fried pickles

 

These are SO easy and SO good!

I was on my frying kick a couple of weeks ago. I was literally searching my kitchen for something to fry.

It was a sad time.

I found some pickles in the fridge. We never eat pickles, so I'm not sure why we had them, but I do LOVE fried pickles. So I got to work!

10 Minute, 5 Ingredient Fried Pickles

1 cup Flour
1 beer
1/4 c Salt
Pickles (about a half a small jar)
1 quart Vegetable Oil for frying

Directions:


Mix the flour, beer, and half the salt. Let the fizz calm down before dipping.

Pat the pickles dry with a paper towel. You want them pretty dry, or the batter doesn't stick as well and the oil bubbles up.

Coat the pickles and fry for about 2 minutes per side.

Sprinkle the fried pickles with the remaining salt (don't skip this step - this really brings out the flavor of the pickles!)

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce - we used ranch and it was great!

Enjoy!
