My family really likes these fried vegetables for a change of pace, especially when it's near fair time. You can use any type of dipping sauce that you enjoy with these vegetables.

Really easy to make fried vegetable. Was a hit in my thanksgiving dinner. I would add some cornstarch to the seasoning mix to make it crunchier. Read More

Try this recipe once and you will NEVER try it again. What a nightmare! I followed the recipe to the "T" because I had 1)never used a beer batter and 2) I had never attempted to fry vegetables in this manner. It was a ridiculous mess. The batter came out too hard when finished that is the part of the batter that stayed on. It took nearly 1 1/2 hours to fry less than 2 lbs of vegetables. I will admit that the taste was not terrible once done but who wants to go through that much trouble for an appetizer or side dish? Really? I was so frustrated at the end that it could have tasted like ambrosia from the Heavens and I would not have appreciated it. I will definitely NOT be making this again. Sorry D.J. Two thumbs down!

This was a very good batter...I'm not sure what the reason was for dipping in egg and milk and flour before the batter. I have made beer batter before and the batter sticks fine to the veggies without the flour and egg, etc. Read More

First this IS a little messy but not too bad. I did skip the milk/egg batter just used the beer/flour mix and certainly did NOT let it sit for 3 hours first: half hour worked fine for me. I added some all season salt and a dash of lemon pepper seasoning to the beer batter and fried a variety of veggies (green peppers onions and zucchini). We enjoyed these alot! Although I normally don't fry my veggies (as it severly decreases the nutritional value of the vegetables) this was a nice change and I might do it again every once in a while. Read More

The flavor of this is wonderful. I used other suggestions in adding some spices to flavor flour/beer mixture.I did not use the egg batter and it didn't make any difference.I used the same batter on shrimp too. Mmm. Fantastic! Read More
