Pregnant Fried Pickles

Fried pickles (also known as frickles) are a Southern tradition that everyone should try. Crunchy, sweet and tangy, this fried appetizer is delicious. If you're a fan of weird flavor combinations (or if you're having certain cravings), we've got a different spin on this pickle favorite with peanut butter fried pickles. Sure, peanut butter and pickles might sound unusual, but the creamy, salty peanut butter goes so well with dill pickle slices.

How To Make Fried Pickles 

In a large bowl stir the all-purpose flour, buttermilk, egg, peanut butter, cayenne pepper, salt, and ground black pepper together and mix until smooth. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until the oil reaches a temperature of 375 degrees. Make sure the pickle chips are dry before you drop them in the batter. Once they're coated, place in the hot oil and fry until golden brown. You'll want to fry the pickles in batches.

Place the peanut butter fried pickles on a paper towel-lined plate and let them drain. Serve them with a side of ranch dressing and just try not to eat all of them by yourself!
