      Some good lookinâ?? cookinâ??

      Our favorite pseudo Lone Star State pal , Jackie Brown from Texas Roadhouse joined us with a couple of easy dishes just in time for the last few holiday parties. Check them out

      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
