Second Bar + Kitchen • Austin
These salty, spicy pickles are one of David Bull's favorite dishes at Second Bar + Kitchen, where they're served with a house-made Gorgonzola sauce. He likes pairing them with the bar's Fightin' Words cocktail, a corn-whiskey riff on a gin-based classic called the Last Word.

How to Make It
In a large saucepan, heat 1 1/2 inches of oil to 375°. Pat the pickle slices dry with paper towels. Put the flour, eggs and bread crumbs in 3 separate shallow bowls. Dredge the pickle slices in flour, shaking off the excess. Dip them in the egg, then coat with the bread crumbs.
Fry the pickles, about 5 slices at a time, turning once, until browned and crisp, about 1 minute. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve hot, with blue cheese dressing and hot sauce.
