Yay it’s Mardi Gras! Yay we’re going to teach you how to make fried pickle chips! Sorry for the short intro, we had a very busy weekend of wedding planning including taste testing at the reception place. And in case you are wondering, yes the food there is amazing!
Anyway, today’s recipe is not ours. We found this recipe on Adrianna’s blog “A Cozy Kitchen” so check it out!
Also, today is Declan’s Mom’s birthday! So be sure to leave her a Happy Birthday comment below because she is awesome!
Are fried pickles a Mardi Gras thing? Or do we just like fried pickles a little too much?
- Servings – 4
- Prep time – 15 minutes
- Cook time – 1 to 2 minutes per batch
- 6 small to medium, kosher dill pickles (or any variety of pickles you like)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 eggs beaten
- 2/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs or cornmeal
- 1 cup of canola oil (or peanut oil)
1. Cut your pickles into 1/4 or 1/2 inch slices (but make sure they are about even for all slices).
2. Create an assembly line for the milk, flour, egg, and crumbs or cornmeal (in that order and in small bowls).
3. Heat your canola oil in a pan over high heat. You will know when it is hot when you sprinkle a bit of water on top and you hear a “popping” noise.
4. Take your pickle slices and go down your assembly line making sure to evenly coat your slices.
5. In small batches (this size depends on the size of your pan, just be aware not to over crowd the pan) drop your coated pickle slices into the hot oil and cook on each side for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.
6. Remove from the pan and place on paper towels to cook and drain, repeat with your other batches.
7. Season with salt and enjoy!
