Well, the lead-up games are over, which means it’s time for that two weeks of pre-Super Bowl hype…aka recipe planning!
America’s game means America’s food, so it’s time to break out the deep fryer. This recipe uses the “Hot Mama” pickles from Lynnae’s Gourmet Pickles–which come with a bonus jalapeno kick in the brine–for some spicy, crispy, pickle-y bites of goodness
Hot Mama Fried Pickles
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 jar LGP Hot Mama pickles
2 cups buttermilk
Preheat 8 cups of vegetable oil to 350 degrees in a large pot.
Drain pickles in a colander and then place into a bowl with the 2 cups of buttermilk.
Place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Take about a handful of the pickles out of the buttermilk and dredge into the seasoned flour. Shake off excess flour, and place battered pickles into hot grease. Be careful not to place too many pickles into the hot grease or the pickles won’t fry up crisp.
Fry pickle slices until golden brown. Continue cooking pickles until all are done.
