Fry Those Pickles!

Sometimes you just need fried pickles. There are many, many recipes out there. After looking through most all of them, I decided to do it my way. 

Fried Pickles for One Hungry Person With A Serious Craving

16 good sized pickle slices
1/2 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Oil for frying

Heat an inch or so of oil in a sturdy pan. Put the milk in a bowl and soak the pickles in the milk. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and spices. When the oil is hot enough for frying, coat each pickle slice in flour and fry until golden brown. That took me about 7 minutes, you may have a different experience; just keep an eye on them. Drain on paper towels.

You'll probably want some dipping sauce. Plain ranch is good, cocktail sauce is fun, barbecue sauce is daring, and you can't go wrong with good old ketchup. I mixed ranch dressing with a dab of liquid smoke and a spoonful of jalapeƱo brine, voila, chipotle ranch!
