Easy Beer Batter

This beer batter will give a little extra tang to any dough-coated deep fried foods.

  • Duration
  • Prep Time
  • 1 1/2 cupsServings


  • 1 cup baking mix (like Bisquick)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • Oil, for frying


1. In a bowl, combine the baking mix, salt and egg. Slowly add the beer and stir until blended.

2. Coat foods thoroughly with the batter and deep fry until golden brown.

Tips: It's best to use fritter-size foods, or a little smaller.  Avoid frying watery foods, like mushrooms in the batter; it just doesn't work well. Cauliflower and zucchini rounds are very   good. So are chicken, hot dog bites, etc.      

This recipe can be doubled or tripled.
