Fried Pickles

Fried pickles are an appetizer I seldom make myself, but I love to order in a restaurant. A special request prompted me to make fried pickles this week for family at home. These are so very yummy, I really should make them more often. Here's a fact: Fried pickles are fun.

Fried Pickles

1 (16 ounce) jar sliced dill pickles, drained
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
4 dashes tabasco sauce
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Oil for frying

In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg, and hot sauce. Add pickles, stir to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Working with a few pickles at a time, roll pickles in flour mixture until well coated. Shake off excess and drop into hot oil. Fry pickles in small batches until golden brown, about 3 - 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve with ranch or horseradish sauce, if desired.
