Finally got a deep fryer and made these tonight and everyone loved them. Leave it to the Texans to beer batter the pickles and add some bbq rub to it! I really enjoyed the texture of the corn meal mixed in with the flour. It was super easy to make these and we even used this mixture to coat some cheese and hot peppers too. They all tasted wonderful. The only I ended changing the second time around was to add more seasoning because I couldn't taste just 1 tsp, so we added 1 tbsp. Anyway, it is a wonderful recipe and look fantastic too. Gotta luv those Texans!

How To Make frickles (texas style)

  • 1
    First dip your pickles in plain flour and shake off excess flour. Next you will dip in the slurry. Finally got my middle nephew Brendan to help in the kitchen! Yeah!!!
  • 2
    In a small bowl make a slurry of the mustard and beer. Dip the pickle slices in the mustard-beer mixture.
  • 3
    Combine the flour and cornmeal (50/50) and season with your favorite BBQ spice rub and dip the pickle in the flour-cornmeal.
  • 4
    Now you are ready to deep fry 5 to 6 pickles at a time at about 370º degrees until the batter is browned, about 30 seconds. Pickles will float to top when done.
