I fried me some pickles ya'll!
I don't think zangy is actually a word…
Ever since I had some fried pickles at a bar with a friend last Christmas I have been itchy to try and make my own. And you know what, it's super easy!
And although I would not say this is a healthy snack, um, I would say it's healthier than fried cheese.
Healthier than fried cheese, there's something to brag about.
To make these you will need: pickles, flour, 1-2 eggs, cornmeal and oil to fry them in.
In a dutch oven or heavy duty pan heat up enough oil that the pickles could be completely submerged, they need to be able to float a little.
Dip the pickles in flour, then into the whisked egg, then into the fry batter made of 1 part cornmeal and 1 part flour. When the oil is hot gently lay the coated pickles in the oil and let them cook for 2 minutes or so on each side. Using a (not plastic, it'll melt, dude) slotted spoon remove pickles and let them cool on a bed of paper towels.
You can serve them with ranch or ketchup (if you're fancy). I just like to eat them.
