A friend challenged me to do this after she saw something similar.
For the batter-Combine the ingredients and mix well. This produces a nice thick batter. Feel free to add any seasonings, dry mustard might be good, or try a different beer.
1 cup flour
1 cup beer, I used Pabst Blue Ribbon
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground garlic
Cut the bacon strips in half, coat with flour, coat with batter and immerse in hot oil until golden brown (three to five minutes or so)
I used buffalo blue cheese dressing, but I think a home made spicy remoulade, or a satay would have been better.
