    For a unique appetizer or snack item that's quite tasty, although a bit unusual, try this simple recipe...

    The ColeySmokette & I have made these for years now, and they never fail to be a crowd pleaser!...

    Thought I'd share it with my SMF Family!...

    Thanks for the recipe, Coley!

    I've had these in bars a couple of times. They are pretty tasty. The places that I've ordered them usually serves them with a dipping sauce similar to the one served with Bloomin' Onions. Do you happen to have the sauce recipe too?

    I found a recipe for the dipping sauce.

    Dipping Sauce:

    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon ketchup
    2 tablespoons cream-style horseradish sauce
    1/3 teaspoon paprika
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 pinch ground black pepper
    1/3 teaspoon cayenne pepper

    Just mix it all together and refrigerate until you need it.

    Thanks for the recipe for the pickles and sauce. The pickles are good by themselves but much better with the sauce. My wife and I really enjoy this as an apetiser and I'm glad to have the directions. Thanks!

    Hey Coley, thanks for the recipe. I have been gonna try them for two years, I've had a jar of pickles sitting beside the deep fryer for 2 months now. [​IMG][​IMG] I just don't want to get in a hurry and make a mistake. [​IMG][​IMG] The recipe that I have in my book says to quarter whole pickles length wise. Are the chips better? If they take 8 minutes to fry, the quarters must take twenty?
  14. Thanks for the recipe Coley. I LUV dills and I've tried them fried at resturants. I thinks its time to do some myself. I have a fresh jar of Clausen's in the 'fridge now.There are halves so I will quarter them. I had them like that at a resturant and they were very good, you get more pickle taste than a chip.

    I *LOVE* fried pickles almost as much as I love fried sweet potatoes and fried cheesecake. Well, then there's also deep fried bacon... and fried twinkies... fried hershey kisses... fried sausage dipped in pancake batter... ooh and of course fried pork rinds... man I'm startin' to sound like Bubba in Forrest Gump!

    Seriously though, the pickles are one of my favorites - I've found that the cheap store-brand dill chips work the best for some reason. Not too thin, not too thick.
