1 cup cornmeal
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 large jar sliced dill pickles
4 cups vegetable oil
Fresh ground black pepper

(Serves 6)


In a medium mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, 2 1/4 cups flour, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well and set aside.

In a separate medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, worcestershire sauce and Tabasco. Mix until well combined. Set aside.

Drain pickles.

In a large sturdy sauce pan set over medium-high heat, heat oil to 350F. Keep an eye on the temperature and adjust heat if necessary.

Once oil is heated, dip drained pickles into milk mixture, then dredge in flour mixture and carefully drop into the hot oil.

Deep fry until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side.

Once cooked, transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Serve immediately.
