I saw a recipe for this a few days ago and thought it was a crazy idea but decided to google and see other Fried Pickle recipes I could find. I came up with this tweaked combination from half a dozen recipes for it and it's yummy! Even without a dipping sauce they are divine and I have a feeling I am going to become addicted ;-)
Whisk together egg, milk, hot sauce, Worcestershire, pickle juice and 1/4 cup flour in a bowl.
In another bowl mix together remaining 1/4 cup flour, tempura batter mix, salt and pepper.
Dip pickle slices in to egg batter then dredge into tempura mixture to coat completely.
Transfer dredged pickles to a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Place cookie sheet in freezer for 30 to 45 minutes
Heat the oil in a deep fryer or sauce pan to medium-high heat and fry pickles in batches until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes.
Transfer on to cloth or paper towel to drain.
Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.

Last year, while on vacation, we visited Stone Mountain, GA. We really enjoyed our trip, and one thing that we really enjoyed was "Deep Fried Pickles" that were served in one of the restaurants.
