In a deep fryer or cast iron skillet, fill up with your desired oil and heat the oil until it reaches 300 to 325 degrees Farenheit. (While waiting for the grease to get hot, pour 16oz Gourmet Fish Fry Breading in a gallon Ziploc bag).
In a separate bowl, combine eggs, milk, and 2 cubes of ice and stir until ice dissolves.
