  • 1
    In large bowl, mix flour, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, cheese and beer with whisk until smooth. Add broccoli; toss until well coated with batter.
  • 2
    In deep fryer or heavy saucepan, heat 2 to 3 inches oil to 375°F. Fry broccoli in batches 2 to 3 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • 3
    Serve warm broccoli bites with ranch dressing for dipping.

  • Self-rising flour works best in this recipe, but if you can’t find it, you can substitute 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Be sure to not crowd the fryer or pan, only frying several florets at a time.
  • Try beer-battering and deep-frying other vegetables, such as green beans, cauliflower florets or zucchini or yellow squash slices.
