Trü Recipes

  • Trü Fried Pickles
    1 egg, beaten
    1 cup milk
    1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
    1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
    ¾ tsp salt
    1 tsp ground black pepper
    3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
    1 jar Trü Pickles (sliced in quarters lengthwise) Place on paper towel to remove moisture
    1 quart vegetable oil for deep frying

    In a small bowl, mix together the egg, milk, 1 Tbsp flour, and Worcestershire sauce.
    In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining flour, salt and pepper.
    Heat oil to 350 F (175 C) in a deep-fryer or heavy deep skillet.
    Dip pickle slices into the milk mixture, then into the flour mixture. Then re-dip into the milk mixture and into the flour mixture (two coats per slice).
    Place the pickles carefully into the hot oil. Avoid over-crowding by frying in several batches.
    Fry until pickles float to the surface and are golden brown.
    Remove with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels. Tastes great with a ranch dip mixed with small amount of Trü Pickle juice!
