I've been a fan of these wonderful fried pickles since I serve these at a resturant in Murrells Inlet, SC 17 years ago. I love them best dipped in Dill Dip instead of other salad dressings. I also used flour instead of corn meal.
i only gave this three stars, because i do not believe sliced pickles should ever be used (they absorb too much oil), and rolling in flour after dipping in such a thin batter may have tasted ok, but it the finished result just LOOKED unappetizing. but it could very easily have five...
here is how i turned a 3 star recipe into a 5 star treat.
1. Use pickle SPEARS instead of slices. they stay crisper.
2. Leave out the cornmeal.
3. instead of saving most of the flour to dredge in, dump ALL ingredients into a bowl and wisk to make a smooth, THICK batter.
4. dip pickle spears into batter, drop into hot oil, fry to golden brown.
5. drain on paper toweling.
6. try dipping in thousand island instead of ranch, YUMMY!
for the record, i used regular milk instead of buttermilk, i eyeballed the ingredients instead of measuring them, and i increased the hot pepper sauce a bit to compensate for being out of cayenne pepper.
i tested this recipe out so i could decide whether or not to bring it as a side dish to a BBQ later tonight... i'm on my way back to the store now to buy two more jars of pickles!
I tried it, I liked it. I tried it again, I loved it. Use a good quality pickle (the first time was using cheap-o pickles) makes all the difference. I love it with a ranch dip and not blue cheese dip(too much)! Thanks so much!
I have a recipe that I used for years, but I decided to try this one. I'm glad I did. Although, I omit the the spicy ingredients, to make it more kid friendly. I use white vinegar in place of the hot sauce! I've even added a little bit more worchestershire sauce, and I think that it makes it just a little bit better! Thanks for the great recipe!
YUMMMMM! I had these at a restaurant and loved them. When I made them, they were just as good. I used the whole chill dills you find in the deli case and cut them into circles. These pickles will stay crisp and not go limp. I'm taking them to my next family get together!
Sorry, no one in my family cared for this recipe. The pickles turned a little soggy and the dill pickle flavoring is really overwhelming. I would not add salt afterwards as there is plenty in the pickle already.
Went to a restaraunt a week ago and had these for the first time. Tried this recipe at home and thought it was great. I did double dip the recipe to get the batter thicker, maybe because I used homemade pickles. TRY THEM, YOU WILL BE HOOKED!!!
These sound so weird, but taste so wonderful! I cook them all the time and make all my friends try them. They're such a hit!!!
