MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Monday on WMBF News at 4 p.m., the Texas Roadhouse stopped by the studios to prepare a couple of great Super Bowl snacks that you can make right at home.
Here is the recipe for Fried Pickles:
Choose your favorite kind of pickle; chips work best.
Prepare Seasoned Flour:
1 cup flour
1tsp of each -- salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and chili powder
Heat peanut or fry oil in a heavy stock pot or Dutch oven to 350F.
Using a zip-top baggie, thoroughly coat pickle chips in seasoned flour, (combine flour, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and chili powder to taste)
Shake off excess flour and fry small batches of pickles in the oil (pickles will float with no bubbles when cooked)
Use a slotted spoon to remove cooked pickles
Drain on a paper towel lined plate or sheet pan and keep warm in oven
Thicker pickle chips will cook more slowly
Allow time some between batches for the oil to reheat
Serve with your favorite dressing or sauce like Ranch or horseradish
