Step 1

In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat your oil on hot.

In a large shallow bowl, mix onion powder, garlic powder, dry bread crumbs, whole wheat flour, white flour, and yeast with a whisk until completely blended.

One at a time, take your pickles with your left hand and drop them into the flour mix, and then coat with your right hand.

(Your hand being used to fish out pickles will get wet, and your other hand will get kind pasty - so if you keep each hand doing a separate job, the whole process is a little less messy and easier.)

Once you have a coating on your pickle you like, remove it with your right/wet and pasty hand and carefully drop into the hot oil. They fry fast, so once you see the coating turn a nice light golden brown, remove the pickle with a slotted spoon and place it on a plate with a paper towel on it to soak up extra Oil. Just keep repeating this process till you've fried the whole jar. Once you get the hang of it, you can do a few at a time, but start off with one so you can see how fast they brown and if you want to adjust how much coating you're getting.

If you want a thicker coating, coat the pickle like it says above and then set them aside for 30 seconds to kinda soak up the dry coating. You'll see the powdery coating start to get kinda pasty. Then re-coat with the flour mix and drop in the oil like is says above.

Serve warm with your favorite dip!
