Fried Pickles


  • 2 cups pickles drained and patted dry
  • 1 egg
  • 1 - 1¼ cup beer
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • oil for frying


  1. Pour oil into a heavy pot, a couple inches high. Heat over medium-high.
  2. Whisk together egg, 1 cup beer, flour, and salt until smooth. If batter is too thick, add in the other ¼ cup beer.
  3. 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.
