Living in Texas fried pickles are always a welcome addition to most any party or barbecuing affair. We even make the when we are tailgating. Nowadays you can find them on the appetizer portion of most restaurants too. I thought I'd share the recipe for them so you can make them at your home.
Serve them with ranch dressing and you'll have a winner at your next barbecue.
