How about some Spicy Fried Dill Pickles??????
So, hello there - how is your Monday going? Spring is right around the corner, you know.....
We all know that anything fried tastes good! However, we also know to limit our fried foods for health reasons. One of our favorite fried splurges in Oklahoma is dill pickles.
Those who haven’t tasted these delicacies often make faces when they hear about fried dill pickles, but that’s just because they haven’t tried them. If you like fried onion rings, you will love fried dill pickles!
Here is the recipe. Remember to enjoy these only once in a while. I normally like to publish healthy (or at least semi-healthy) recipes, but I realize that a splurge now and then won’t stop the world….
Spicy Fried Dill Pickles
10 medium dill pickles, sliced into thin, quarter-size discs, or you can use the dill pickle “hamburger slices”
1 beaten egg
1 cup low-fat milk
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
5 drops of red pepper sauce
2 cups and 1 Tablespoon flour
Pepper to taste
Enough vegetable oil for deep frying
In a deep fryer, heat the oil to 350 degrees. Mix egg, milk, Worcestershire sauce, pepper sauce, 1 Cup and 1 Tablespoon flour. In another bowl, place the rest of the flour and pepper to taste. Dip the pickle slices in the egg mixture, then in the flour, back in the egg mixture, and finally, back in the flour. Fry the pickles until golden brown.
Drain on a paper towel and serve piping hot.
Some people dip their fried pickles in ranch dressing before eating them. These hot little gems are perfect snacks when settling down with a movie in the dead of winter. Promise yourself that you will visit your farmers' market when spring finally gets here for healthier eating options!
