Help - Fried Pickle Batter
« on: April 13, 2011, 06:37:31 PM »
My wife and I have been trying to get an effective, yet delicious fried pickle batter made. So far, unsuccessful.

We have got the batter consistency and texture close, but it is not quite there. This is where we are at:
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 3 cups flour
- 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Seasoned Salt
- Pepper
- Chili Powder

It is just missing the bold flavor we are used to getting from the restaurant variety. Maybe Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, garlic, onion? I don't know, what do you all use?

I'd add some garlic powder and some old bay to the mix.  Also, are you tasting the flavors of the spices you have added? if not you might need to up the quantity a bit.

You have to help me out here, 'old bay'? Exactly what is it?

The Chili powder is easily detected as well as the pepper. Haven't put a lot of the Lawry's in the batter yet.

Add some dill to the batter... :yup:
Ahhh. Good call.

You can probably use it and replace the chili powder. its a good somewhat spicy seasoning.

Steal some breader from Chick-Fil-A... seriously...

The trick is to dip them in eggwash/milkwash and then dredge them in a dry mix. Don't use a wet batter.

I used to make them all the time when I worked @ CFA.
