Ingredients

  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons black pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 Cup buttermilk
  • 5 Cups dill pickle slices
  • Oil, for frying

Directions

Combine the all-purpose flour, kosher salt, black pepper, granulated garlic, and cayenne to make seasoned flour. Add the buttermilk to a separate dish. 

Dredge the pickle slices in the buttermilk then in the seasoned flour. Heat 2-3 inches of oil in a large skillet to 375 degrees. Fry the pickles for about 1-1 ½ minutes, until crispy and golden brown. 

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
