I am a southern girl down to my core. I especially miss living in Texas, where I was born but not raised. I don’t think it matters that I wasn’t raised in Texas, I’m a Texas girl deep in my heart. I lived there for several years as an adult, and while I was there I found a cute little restaurant in a tiny little town very South of Dallas, that makes the world’s best Fried Pickles. Don’t argue with me, they are. I made special trips to that restaurant just to eat those fried pickles. Them. Nothing else. Them.
I have spent years trying to recreate that recipe, because no matter what you think, there is nowhere in Missouri that serves amazing fried pickles. Period.
Well, I think I have done it. And not only have I done it, but I have now made my children completely and totally crazed! They just love these things and beg for them weekly. I am not into the habit of making fried foods to often, but this is my one indulgence, my one recipe that I make for them often. I hope if you love Fried Pickles, you will enjoy this recipe as much as we do. This recipe is a culmination of many that I have tried until I perfected it and got it just right.
