Deep Fried Pickles

Deep Fried Pickles
24 dill pickle spears, chilled
Egg wash, recipe follows
Breading, recipe follows
Canola Oil, for frying
Ranch Dressing

Using only very cold dill pickle spears, dip into egg wash and then coat with breading. Repeat until no pickles remain, and arrange dipped pickles on a sheet pan lined with waxed paper. Chill for at least 30 minutes.

In a deep fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees F. Alternatively, heat oil in a large heavy pot suitable for deep-frying. Carefully add chilled pickle spears, in batches, to the hot oil and fry for about 3 ½ minutes or until golden. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Serve with Ranch Dressing.
