Have you ever tried fried pickles? If you haven’t they really are a must!! According to Wikipedia the first known printed fried pickle recipe was in the Oakland Tribune on November 19, 1962, for “French Fried Pickles.” That recipe called for using sweet pickle slices and pancake mix. According to the owners of the Hollywood Cafe in Robinsonville, Mississippi, fried dill pickles made their debut in 1969 when a desperate cook running out of catfish reached for a jar of dill pickles. Bob Austin of Atkins, Arkansas claims to have invented the fried dill pickle in 1960 while operating the Duchess Drive In. Who knows for sure who invented the fried pickle but it sure is delicious.
Anyway- here's the recipe for these: http://www.smalltownwoman.com/fried-baby-dill-pickles/
