    Happy Fry-day! Deep Fried Pickles!!


    1 1/2 cups whole milk
    2 eggs – beaten
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
    1 cup cornmeal
    2 teaspoons baking powder

    vegetable oil – enough to fry
    dill pickle chips/spears
    1/2 cup all purpose flour – or enough to dredge
    ranch dressing – to dip

    1. Place your oil into a deep sided pan. You’ll need enough oil to submerge the pickles. Approximately 2-3″. Heat oil to 350 degrees. {I use a candy thermometer to make sure I monitor my oil temperature}

    2. WHILE oil is heating mix together batter. Into a large bowl add: milk, eggs, 1/4 cup vegetable oil. Whisk to combine. Set aside. Into a separate bowl add: salt, sugar, 1 1/2 cups flour, cornmeal and baking powder. Whisk to combine. GRADUALLY add flour mixture to wet ingredients. Mix until well incorporated.

    3. Lightly dredge desired amount of pickles into flour. Tap off excess. Place each floured pickle into the batter until well coated.

    4. CAREFULLY drop battered pickles into oil. Cook for approximately 2-3 minutes OR until golden on all sides. Remove fried pickles from oil and transfer onto a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess grease.

    5. Serve with a side of ranch dressing for dipping.
