Summer Eats: Bonus Week

Fried dill pickles, onion rings and a sauce

I intended for last week to be the final week in this series, but I thought I'd give it a bonus week. Several of my friends who never comment on anything I write commented on these food articles, and I didn't receive one why are you writing about food on a Mississippi State blog comment, so why not throw out one more?

These are super easy and really good. Always an excellent snack while you are watching college football.

Fried dill pickles

Grab a handful/spoonful of pickles, cover them in flour and throw them in the deep fryer for 3 minutes. That's it. You don't need to dip them in egg or buttermilk because they are already wet from the pickle jar so the flour will easily stick. And I always use hamburger pickle chips like in the picture above.

Onion rings

Take a sweet Vidalia onion and slice it up. Pull the rings apart, dip them in a whisked egg, cover in 3/4 flour and 1/4 corn meal (corn meal gives it the crispness), and throw them in the deep fryer for 4 minutes.


This sauce works great for both the pickles and onions.


  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper
  • 1.5 teaspoons horseradish
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
Mix those up and you've got an excellent dipping sauce (similar to Chili's awesome blossom sauce).

Well, that's it. Hope y'all enjoyed this summer series. Now that it's over...time for football! Hail State.
