Ingredients

Instructions

  1. On the stove top, add about 1 inch of oil to a large pan. You can use oil of choice. I have used vegetable and peanut oil and both work well. You will need a thermometer to make sure the oil is at 375 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, mix all the sauce ingredients together and set to the side while the oil is heating up.
  3. Drain the pickle slices. Pat dry.
  4. Grab 2 bowls. Add the buttermilk and eggs in bowl #1. Add cornmeal, cayenne, pepper and flour in bowl #2.
  5. Each pickle needs to be dipped in bowl #1 and then coated in bowl #2. Set coated pickles on a large plate. Repeat process until all the pickles are coated.
  6. In small batches, add the coated pickles to the pan with oil at 375 degrees. Cook around 2 minutes or until golden brown flipping half way through. Remove from oil and place on paper towels. Repeat until pickles are all fried.
  7. Dip fried pickles in sauce ad enjoy!
