Pickles (Sliced into rounds)
2 Bottles of Light Beer (we used Bud Light)
3 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Your Favorite Dipping Sauce (optional, I used french onion dip)
What to do:
Heat the oil to about 350F. I don’t use a thermometer (ours broke), so I test it by letting it heat up for a little bit, dropping a small bit of batter in and watching to see if it starts to fry. Then it’s ready.
In a large bowl, mix together the beer, flour, salt and pepper. Whisk until a smooth batter forms.
Pat the pickle rounds dry with a paper towel.
Line a plate with paper towels. (this is where you will place the pickles after they fry)
Working in small batches, about 6 at a time, dip the pickle rounds into the batter. Once they are covered in batter, drop them into the hot oil and let them fry for about 3-4 minutes, or until lightly brown.
(We didn’t want ours super brown or crispy, but you could fry them longer if you wanted)
Remove fried pickles from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain the oil off them.
Continue this process until all pickles are fried.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or eat plain .
I served mine with french onion dip! YUM!
