The first time we had fried pickles, we knew they had to go on the menu at The Lady & Sons. If you’ve never had them—or heard of them—give them a chance. Crisp, salty, and fried, with a sweet-spicy dip they are everything you want in a snack.
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons honey
Vegetable oil for frying
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup cornmeal
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
48 slices bread and butter pickles (from a 16-ounce jar)
For the sauce, in a small bowl, stir together all the sauce ingredients until smooth. (The dipping sauce can be made ahead and refrigerated until ready to use.)
For the pickles, in a heavy pot, heat 2 inches of oil to 350¡F. Put the flour in one bowl, the beaten eggs in a second bowl, and the cornmeal in a third bowl; season the flour and cornmeal with salt and pepper.
Dip the pickles first in the flour, shaking off the excess; dip into the beaten egg, then dredge in the cornmeal to coat. Lay on a baking sheet. When all the pickles are coated, fry them in batches in the hot oil about 30 seconds or until brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer fried pickles a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Serve pickles hot with honeymustard sauce for dipping.
Servings: 6 to 8
