Fried Pickles


Here is a super easy recipe for Fried Pickles! It is one of my favorite appetizers. If you want great fried pickles the key is to start with a great pickle. So be sure to use a dill pickle you like. I find some dill pickle chips to be too strong.

Fried Pickles Ingredients:

2 Cups of All-Purpose Flour

1/2 Teaspoon of Salt

1/4 Teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper or Black Pepper  (More or Less to Taste)

2 Eggs

1 Cup of Milk

Vegetable Oil (for frying)

Ranch or Hot Sauce for Dipping

pickle ingredients

pickles coat 1

pickles coat 2

pickles coat 3

pickles plated


Drain pickles and blot with paper towel to remove excess moisture.

In a bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. I use cayenne pepper, but if you prefer things less spicy I would substitute black pepper.  Separate mix into two bowls.

In a separate bowl, combine eggs and milk. Mix well.

Dip each pickle chip in flour, the egg, the flour mixture.

In a skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees.  Depending on your skillet size, add a few pickles at a time. Fry approximately 3 minutes turning once. Fry until a light golden brown.

Drain fried pickles on a plate lined with paper towels.

Serve with Ranch and Hot Sauce.

    They sound crazy, but I do LOVE friend pickles! I used to always order them when going to a certain restaurant for lunch from work when I lived in New Orleans. I don’t think I’ve seen them on any menus where I live in NY now. Finally broke down and made some for the first time a while back and was very happy with how they turned out. I used crushed White Cheddar Cheeze-It crackers for the coating – no eggs. Might have to make another batch now that I’m seeing this – I’ve only ever had them with hot sauce (I like a little sour cream or yogurt with Sriracha), so you’ve got me wondering about the Ranch. OK, now that I’m thinking about them again, I wonder how a beer batter would be. Hmmm… 😉 [#CraftyAndDelicious]

      Hi Chris! Yes, I think they are a Southern thing….we will fry pretty much anything. 🙂 Your coating sounds great- I will have to give it a try. Yes, I do want to try them in beer batter too! Thanks for stopping by! -Jessica

    THANK YOU for posting this recipe! I have been looking for the “right” one to try and get good results. We were recently spoiled on a trip to Chicago with the BEST fried pickles I had eaten in my whole life… until trying a modified recipe of your recipe at home today. We just sifted some chop house steak rub (1/4 cup) spices into the left breading bowl, then put the leftover chunks and a 1/4 cup of Panko bread crumbs in the right breading bowl. AMAZING. Hubby made a dip with olive-oil-mayo and Sriracha sauce! I used my grandmothers old Westinghouse fryer at 400 for about 3 to 5 minutes. A little California twist on a Southern fave. Again, thank you!
