Fried pickles are the ultimate game day snack and truly one of our all time favorite snacks!! Who can resist a tangy dill pickle in a crispy crunch panko crust?! (Not me, that’s for sure)!
I tried deep fried pickles for the first time at a restaurant while travelling and I’ve been hooked ever since. I haven’t found anyone who makes excellent fried pickles near me so I decided to make my own!
I am telling you, these are my newest addiction! (And I may or may not have had a few fried pickles for breakfast today with my coffee… but I won’t say for sure).
You can use any type of dill pickles (sweet pickles don’t have the same impact as a tangy dill pickle) to make these.
Rounds, slices, spears or halves all work but I always choose the sandwich slices because I like the size of them plus they’re perfect for dipping!
“Who would have thought that pickles could taste so good fried? Partner them with Cajun buttermilk ranch dressing for dipping. Yum!”
Awesome recipe. I did not use the seafood seasoning because I did not have it. But I did use the Cajun and it was good. It tasted just like eating out. Also, I picked this recipe because it did not have eggs. I was beginning to think you could not fry pickles without eggs. Thanks so much poster.
Dill Pickle Chips
3/4 to 1 cup of beer
1 -2 cups of flour
Cholesterol free oil
Pour oil in a large skillet until the oil is about 1-2 inches up the side of the pan. Heat oil to 350 degrees.
Strain pickles in a small colander.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the yolks and 3/4 cup of the beer. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Whisk in enough flour to form a batter. If the batter is too thick add the remaining beer to thin the batter.
Dip pickles one at a time using tongs into the batter and then place in the heated oil.
Fry pickles for about 2 minutes flipping the pickle after about 1 minute.
Place pickles on a plate lined with paper towel and then season with salt. Serve with Ranch Dressing.
