cornmeal pickle fritters

i don't really think i need to say anything else besides this: pickle fritters. just go freaking make them now. they only lasted 5 minutes when i showed up with them at a bbq.

cornmeal pickle fritters
adapted from epicurious
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/3 cups yellow cornmeal (preferably stone-ground)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • a bunch of chopped pickles (a bunch is the technical term)
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • whisk together the egg, milk, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and pickles
  • heat a generous amount of oil in a pan over medium high heat. when the oil is hot, drop batter (amount depends on how large you want your fritters) and fry on both sides until golden brown.
