Fried Pickles

1 (16 ounce) jar sliced dill pickles, drained

1 cup buttermilk

1 egg

4 dashes tabasco sauce

1 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Oil for frying

In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg, and hot sauce. Add pickles, stir to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Working with a few pickles at a time, roll pickles in flour mixture until well coated. Shake off excess and drop into hot oil. Fry pickles in small batches until golden brown, about 3 - 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve with ranch or horseradish sauce, if desired.
