Southern Fried Pickles

by 247tasty

I have never tasted like this before until I decided to cook it. It may seem a bit odd at first because it is pickles. It’s best served plain but I was completely wrong. It is best served, fried! This amazing recipe has become my go-to-food for the past 3 weeks. It’s just really simple. Make the sauce, which I have included in the ingredients, by the way, fry the pickles and serve. That’s it! No extra steps or ingredients. It is the easiest dish I have ever prepared and cooked in my whole life. Give it try and taste for yourself. Enjoy!
