  • 6 Pickle slices
  • 1 cup Cooked Hill Meat Ends & Pieces
  • 1 cup Cornmeal
  • 1 cup All-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons Granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kinders Buttery Garlic and Herb
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • 1 cup Beer of choice
  • 2 quarts Vegetable oil
  1. Step 1

    In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and your seasonings.

  2. Step 2

    Add buttermilk, egg, honey, and your cooked bacon to a bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined with the dry ingredients. Set bowl aside and let batter rest 10 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    While batter rest, heat up your oil. We used a deep fryer, but you can easily us a deep skillet and heat it up to 350 degrees F.

  4. Step 4

    Use a paper towel to pat dry the pickles to get any excess moisture off of them.

  5. Step 5

    Give the batter a stir and add in your beer. The batter should be able to thickly coat a spoon while also be fluid enough to slowly drip off. if batter is too thin add a little bit of flour at a time mixing in between and checking consistency.

  6. Step 6

    Pour batter into a tall drinking glass, filling to about 3/4 full. In a small bowl add some flour and coat each pickle then dip your Pickle into the batter; gently twisting to coat the pickle from end to end. Slowly pull the pickle out of the batter, shaking off any excess.

  7. Step 7

    Holding the coated Pickle by one end, gently drop it into the oil, letting go before the oil touches you fingers. Cook for 3-5 minutes, using tongs to turn the pickle as needed. Use tongs to transfer your pickles to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat this step until all pickles are cooked. To speed things along, fry the Pig Fingers in batches.
