One last Superbowl idea for you!
I don’t usually like doing fried foods when I’m entertaining. They take a lot of time and since you can’t really do them ahead of time, you wind up spending most of your time standing over the stove.
But as we all know, fried foods are almost always crowd-pleasers! These fried pickles take no time at all so they’re perfect for cooking up right as your guests are walking through the door
And umm… fried pickles? One of man’s greatest inventions!
(I am never going to get rid of that Natural Light that my husband’s friends left in my fridge. I’ve been cooking with it at least once a week but it seems to be multiplying. Send beer recipes.)
- 2 cups pickles drained and patted dry
- 1 egg
- 1 - 1¼ cup beer
- 1 cup flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- oil for frying
Pour oil into a heavy pot, a couple inches high. Heat over medium-high.
Whisk together egg, 1 cup beer, flour, and salt until smooth. If batter is too thick, add in the other ¼ cup beer.
Once oil is hot, dip pickles, one at a time, in the batter. Allow excess batter to drip off and then drop the pickles in the oil. Fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.
