Buttermilk Fried Pickles #SundaySupper

Buttermilk fried pickles is a recipe I make every Superbowl to start off the feast. The first few years I made these I used beer batter, regular flour, and a tons of spices. The spices have stayed but the beer and the flour changed after trying various recipes through out the years.

The first and foremost important tip to remember is to get Vlasic as these pickles are crisp. You MUST have a crisp pickle to make them or they will fall apart when frying. The flavor or spice of the pickle is up to you. I have fried up dill pickles but this year I am putting a twist on the traditional favorite by using bread and butter pickles. Along with that change I used cake flour and buttermilk to bread the pickles. The cake flour is light and airy. It creates the perfect batter and the buttermilk helps the flour to attach in flaky layers. Paprika and cayenne pepper are a must for seasoning!

  1. 1 jar of pickles; your choice of flavor
  2. 1 to 1 1/2 cups cake flour
  3. 2 cups buttermilk
  4. 1 tablespoon paprika
  5. 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  6. vegetable oil for frying
  7. Salt and pepper
  1. Open pickles and drain off the juice into the sink. Place pickles in a large bowl. Pour buttermilk over pickles and let rest for about 2 minutes.
  2. In a skillet or deep saute pan, add oil and heat to a medium heat for frying.
  3. In medium sized bowl, add cake flour and spices; whisk until spices are integrated. Toss a few pickles in flour batter at a time. Add pickles to frying pan and fry for about 30 seconds to a 1 minute on each side. They will cook fast! If the batter starts to brown fast then turn down the heat a little. Drain pickles on a paper towel. Serve with ranch dressing or ranch dipping sauce.

    I love fried pickles! We have a place in Seaside, Fl actually called Pickles, so I just get them there when craving. I stick to dill, but your recipe looks great! #SundaySupper

      I hear there is a place somewhere in Texas with the same name “Pickles” that makes them too. I’ve had them a few places but the best have a cranberry chili sauce served with them!

    Trying to make your ex jealous is just one of the worst things
    you can do if you wish to come back with your ex-spouse, since all it is going to
    do is show him that you have moved on which he should do the very same.
    Instead, you desire him to believe that he was the most effective thing
    in your life, and that nobody as compares to just what
    he had to offer you. By enhancing his self-confidence without appearing underprivileged, he will soon recognize both
    of you were great together despite the little battle or differences.
    Also, stay away from acquiring dismayed if he is viewing other people, because you won’t have the ability to quit it
    whatever you try.
