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

Potato Skins


6 Medium Baking Potatoes

Vegetable Oil

All Seasoning Mix

8 oz. Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1/8 cup Bacon Bits

2. Scrub the potatoes clean, rub with vegetable oil and bake for approximately one hour

3. Remove potatoes from oven, allow to cool slightly before handling

4. Cut into halves

5. Using a spoon carefully scoop the inside of the potatoes until ¼ inch of the potato shell remains

6. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees

8. Flip the skins over and bake for an additional 10 minutes
