    1. Drain the pickles and dry on paper towels. (Save the pickle juice to pickle zucchini or to brine chicken.)
    2. Beat the egg in a small bowl large enough to accommodate 5 pickles.
    3. Mix the protein powder and cheese together in a medium bowl with a small whisk until blended.
    4. Heat a medium to large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add enough oil to generously cover the bottom of the pan. The oil is ready when a wooden spoon placed in the oil starts to bubble.
    5. Procedure: Dip 5-6 pickles in the egg wash, coating completely. Shake off any excess egg and place into the coating mixture to coat. Using a fork to help flip the pickles is helpful. Carefully place the pickles into the hot oil and fry 1 minute or until golden brown, flip.
    6. Meanwhile coat the next five pickles and place in the pan to cook. Continue until all of the pickles have been coated and cooked. Drain on paper towels.
    7. Serve at room temperature with spicy dipping sauce.
