Big games coming up this weekend and great weather for tailgating. Here are some recipes to add to your tailgate or football watching Saturday.
Recipes provided by Shea Goldstein, of Dixie Chik Cooks.
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 T salt
1 T pepper
2 t cayenne pepper
1 cup buttermilk
1 12 oz jar hamburger pickles
Canola or vegetable oil, for frying
Combine the flour, cornmeal, salt, pepper and cayenne in a large bowl.
Dip each pickle individually in the buttermilk, then dredge in flour mixture (I did mine twice to get a good coating on there).
Bring the oil to 350 degrees.
Fry the pickles in batches until brown, 1 to 2 minutes, and move to a paper
towel lined plate using a slotted spoon. Serve with Ranch dressing.

Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese, Monterey Jack and Mueunster over the sauce.
Layer the pepperoni slices and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
