Many people are surprised that they love this unusual food item. I know there are many recipes here for this food item, this is the way we fix them. The first time we made these we ran out of pickles so we started to "fry" anything that was not tied down, olives, cheese, veggies, I even was looking at the cats ( well the wife would not stand for that ) so it did not happen LOL! Cooking times are approximations, use your judgement. SOURCE Shadows

YUMMY! I'm so glad I found this recipe! My boyfriend and I have made them several times now and they are definitely a favorite! They are especially good dipped in ranch dressing!

Yowza!!! I did a very small batch of these, in case they tasted as wierd as they sound, with my home-made dill pickles. Well they were so tasty I did up a BIG batch for a bunch of friends on a camping trip the next weekend and didn't have one left! Wierd, but wonderful!

WOW, these were quite interesting...and addictive ! The only thing I changed was using my deep fryer but at the temp. posted here. I know my family will love these, but I will have them finished by the time they get home ! Thanks Shadow.
