    • 8 dill pickles
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • 1/4 cup beer
    • 1 1/4 T paprika
    • 1 1/4 T cayenne pepper
    • 1 1/4 T black pepper
    • 1/2 t salt
    • 2 t garlic salt
    • 3 dashes tabasco sauce
    • Oil for deep frying

Cut the dill pickles in slices as thick as a silver dollar. Mix together the remaining ingredients to form the batter. Dip the pickles in the batter and quickly fry in the hot oil (375F/190C) until pickles float to the top, about 4 minutes.

Elvis came across these in pickles at roadhouses outside Memphis; fried pickles are the perfect accompaniment to beer. They are believed to have been invented at the Hollywood, a roadhouse originally in Hollywood, Mississippi.
