Beer Battered Fried Pickles

Dill pickles are dipped in a light beer batter and fried until golden and crispy. There’s even more pickles in the dipping sauce filling every bite with salty, briny pickle flavor.

If you never had a fried pickle before then these might sound weird to you like they did to me but weird is totally delicious here! I solemnly pinky swear.

Once you have them you won’t soon forget them.

I made these with Farmer’s Garden® Kosher dill spears by Vlasic®. Farmer’s Garden pickles are made with the finest, specially selected ingredients – deliciously ripe cucumbers, whole garlic cloves, slices of red bell pepper, rounds of carrots and fresh herbs and spices all harvested at the peak of freshness.

I love how every single Farmer’s Garden® cucumber is hand-packed in a traditional mason jar (that you can use over and over again) and pickled using home-style canning techniques to lock in the bold, fresh taste.

Fried Pickles with Pickle Dipping Sauce
There are five delicious varieties of Farmer’s Garden® by Vlasic® pickles: Zesty Garlic Chips, Bread & Butter Chips, Kosher Dill Spears, Kosher Dill Halves and Dill Chips. The best pickles for this are the kosher dill spears or dill chips.

Beer Battered Fried Pickles with Pickle Dipping Sauce

INGREDIENTS:

Sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise (regular or low-fat)
4 tablespoons ketchup
1/3 cup diced Vlasic Farmer's Market® Kosher dill spears or chips
3 teaspoons minced onion
1 teaspoon white vinegar
Pickles:
1 large egg
12 ounces beer or club soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
vegetable oil, for frying
2 jars (minus the ones you used for the sauce) Vlasic Farmer's Market® Kosher dill spears or chips, drained and patted dry with paper towels

INSTRUCTIONS:

    Make the Sauce:
  1. Whisk the mayo, ketchup and vinegar together. Stir in the pickles and onion. Refrigerate.
  2. Make the Batter:
  3. In a large mixing bowl whisk the egg, beer and baking powder together. Whisk in the flour slowly, then the salt and continue whisking until smooth.
  4. Fry the Pickles:
  5. Fill a Dutch oven (or use a deep fryer) with 1 to 1 + 1/2 inches of oil. Fit with a splatter screen and heat over medium heat to 340 - 350 degrees F.
  6. Dip pickle slices one at a time into the batter and carefully slide them into the hot oil. Fry the pickles in batches, 4 - 5 minutes or until golden.
  7. Drain on paper towels or wire racks and serve hot and fresh with the pickle sauce. If they sit around they get soggy.
