Gluten Free Fried Pickles Anyone???
Gluten Free Fried Pickles
1 jar Vlasik Kosher Dill stackers
Drained. Put pickles on paper towel to absorb extra liquid.
In large bowl, combine on egg beaten and 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
stir well and add pickles.
In large zip lock bag, combine:
1/2 cup GF corn flake crumbs
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1 tsp xantham gum
1 tsp pepper
1 TLB salt
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp basil
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
Zip up bag and shake vigorously to mix ingredients well.
Take pickles from butter milk and place in bag, zipping bag and shaking well to coat pickles.
Remove pickles and place in glass dish. Pour butter milk solution over breaded pickles coating well.
Place pickles back into zip lock bag and shake vigorously to recoat pickles with flour mixture again.
Heat up enough oil to fry. I used a medium sized pan and had the oil 1 1/2 inches deep. (2 cups)
I used Olive oil.
When oil is hot, place pickles in the oil, but do not let them touch each other. I was able to cook 5 at a time.
Let them get a nice golden brown, turned them for about 15 seconds and then removed them to drain on a paper towel. Continue process until all pickles are fried.
ENJOY with Ranch Dressing!
Litehouse Brand is GF!
NOTE: This same recipe is good for chicken too. I have made chicken nuggets and plain fried chicken. It was wonderful. And especially good cooked in coconut oil.
