I shouldn't be eating this!

Fried Pickles. I'm addicted. The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?! When I was pregnant with Baby Girl, Josh and I went to the mountains for our was there that I REALLY became a fan! So when we got back home, I played around with different things until I found the PERFECT recipe.

1 Egg
1/2 - 1 cup milk
Zatarains seasoned fish fry-Crispy Southern Style-be SURE to use this exact same one!!
Pickles-I use the hamburger chips, but I have used others

Take as many pickles as you want to fry out of the jar and let them drain a little on some paper towels...don't pat them dry! Mix your milk and egg in a bowl. Dump some of the fish fry onto a plate. If you want to be lazy, you can just put it in a bag...but I'm telling you, they don't taste as good!!!! Put some of the pickles in the milk/egg mixture, coating them. Pick them out one by one and drop them in the fish fry, coating them again. Then you'll just put them in the fry basket. Continue this over and over until you get them all in the basket. Deep fry them at about 350 degrees...and it doesn't take long at all....a couple of minutes. We usually eat them with ranch dressing.

You're welcome!

Next time I'll post a healthy recipe...I'm pretty sure I just clogged your arteries!

Sounds great! I use that exact same fish fry to fry everything from fish to green tomatoes. It is fabulous!

Oven Fry
We dredge in buttermilk and flour, brown in EVOO and bake @ 375 to 425 til brown. Works for chicken, fish, will try for pickles!
