It’s Friday, Friday, Friday…fun, fun, fun, fun. Ok I’ll stop, that song always gets in my head and I absolutely hate it. I’m in a pretty good mood today. We got our new bed frame and mattress yesterday and I had the best sleep last night than I had in a while. Thank you Crate & Barrel and your Comforpedic mattress, love love love!!
I am having some issues, however. Like the fact that I cannot find the fried pickle recipe I based this on and I can’t remember all of the ingredients I used! I need a refresher. How did this recipe disappear of the face of the internet?! It’s seriously a mystery. I found it on pinterest and now when I search for fried pickles I get nada. I’m giving up for now but I will find it!
The idea started as “fried” pickles, but then I found another recipe that I thought sounded even better so it ended up as just fried pickles you see. I’m not usually big on frying but I have a serious love for pickles and buttermilk batter, I even dipped some onion rings in this batter and fried those up, heaven!
I’m going to take a wild guess at the recipe, I do know the basics and hopefully I’m not leaving anything out.
Fried Dill Pickles
adapted from a recipe that I can no longer find on Pinterest
6 dill pickles, quartered
1/2 cup flour
1 egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
2-3 tablespoons pickle juice
2/3 cup buttermilk Bisquick
2 teaspoons jerk seasoning (original called for old bay)
1 tablespoon dill weed
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
ranch dressing for dipping
oil for frying
Heat your oil in a deep pan or fryer until about 180 degrees.
Place the flour in a bowl and set aside.
In another bowl mix together the egg, pickle juice and buttermilk until well combined. Add the Bisquick, jerk seasoning and dill weed, stir. Then add the lemon juice, salt & pepper, mix.
Toss your pickles in the flour, removing any excess. Then dip into the buttermilk mixture and carefully place in the hot oil. Fry in oil until golden brown. Serve while hot!
