Fried Dill Pickles


I've seen these as appetizers in restaurants before but
had never tried them.  Taylor and Lauren were talking about
how good they are, so I thought we'd give them a try!

I changed up a few recipes I found online and made this one my own.

Fried Dill Pickles

1 one lb jar of dill pickle slices
2 c Panko Bread Crumbs

2/3 c cornmeal
1/3 c flour
1 c buttermilk
1 egg
1 t paprika


Preheat oil in fryer to 360.

Drain the pickle slices and pat dry with paper towels.

Spread Panko crumbs in a shallow dish.

Whisk up remaining ingredients for the batter.

Dip each pickle slice in the batter and then in the crumbs.
Let sit a minute or two to allow mixture to stick to pickles.
Fry in small batches for 4-5 minutes until brown and crispy.

Serve with ranch dip or dressing.

Yum.

    1. It's a southern thing here, but it's crept it's way up north. You'll have to ask your daughter if she's had them.

  4. Oh my would Don love these...he is such a Dill Pickle fan. He has good reason ~ he married one...HaHa Wanda Dill Slaven. I don't have a deep fryer, but you could probably do it in a cast iron skillet.

    1. You don't have to have a frier...just a sauce pot deep enough to hold a few inches of oil and extra space so the spattering doesn't hit you. A dutch oven would be perfect!

  5. These are so delicious. I confess I like them with an ice cold Blue Moon :)

    1. Personally, I wouldn't eat more than 6-8. An appetizer, for sure.

  7. Oh yes, they are delicious! Sinfully delicious! But, oddly enough, I can't eat too many. I guess because they are fried.....just doesn't sit well in my tummy. A great appetizer for a crowd, though. Yours look like they are cooked to perfection.

    1. I prefer them as an appetizer...wouldn't want a big plate of them for myself. Very fun to try, though.
      Tonight I used the left over batter to do deep fried asparagus.....that was very tasty...

    2. Oh yum! I bet it was! Batter fried green beans are big around here, too.

    3. yeah, those are delish, too! But I better put the fryer away or we'll be in big trouble. ha.

  8. My son loves pickles, and fried food, so this looks like something he would love. And me, too! Have to get my wife to try making this sometime.

  9. I love pickles but never tried deep fried. Cool.
    We have an annual fair called the CNE - Canadian National Exhibition - lovingly known as The Ex. It runs mid-August to Labour Day. Tons of rides, booths, pavilions and FOOD! One of the booths has deep-fried everything. Last year they added deep-fried Coca Cola. It looked like crunchy, curly worms! I didn't try it... maybe this year!

    1. Well, that's a new one to me! I think I'd have to have a funnel cake, though!

      Delete
    2. Do you know I've never had a funnel cake before... or a corn dog... hmmmmm, might have to try them on!

      Delete
    3. Run, do not walk, to The Ex and have both! haha....

  10. I've seen these at restaurants, but we are not dill fans so we've never ordered them. Maybe I'd be surprised though! :)

    1. You might be! I never eat dill pickles, but these were a fun little treat.

  11. Those look perfect! I've tried them at a restaurant once.... didn't like them enough to ever order them a second time! But hey, I'd give yours a try if that opportunity ever presented itself. Maybe while sitting on your porch sipping something.

    1. Yeah, they aren't something I'd ever have a craving for, but they were tasty and fun. I put cornmeal in the breading..reminded me a little of fried green tomatoes. :)

  12. Our local pizza place sells them. Quite delicious.

  13. Hi Betsy - gosh they look and sound good ... would love to try .. but the mess of frying is a step too far and it's only me ... so I'll remember the idea and perhaps one day the occasion will be right ... cheers Hilary

  15. I have eaten them and really liked them, but have not tried to make them. Your recipe sounds great!

    1. Well, let me know if you make them. Nice to see you again! :)

  16. These are really good- I used to eat them all the time when a local hamburger joint made them..these and fried green beans...YUM! Your recipe looks like a good one to try.

    1. They would be a great side to a juicy burger. Gosh...I'd eat that right now!

  17. Well, I would have a go at making some of these but: No dill pickle slices available here within a hundred miles! No "Panko Bread Crumbs" (Never heard of them!). Cornmeal is about as rare as Crushed Snail Shells here. As to "ranch dip", if it's what I think it is it must be similar "farm dip" you find in the fields here, usually by putting your foot in it!

    1. Don't shoot! Joking about the farm dip. . . . .!

    2. lol....my goodness! You certainly can't make these. I'm surprised you don't have a few of these things, though. Panko are Japanese.....your pan fried fish would be perfect made with these. No cornbread over there? I guess not if you don't have cornmeal.
      And no ranch salad dressing? That is probably the most popular salad dressing in America.

      You'll just have to trust me that they were yummy. :)

    3. I made your recipe of Bread and Butter Pickles this morning, and they are now in the 'fridge chilling. Can't wait to take a big bite of them!

    4. Oh, how nice, Cher! I hope you like them as much as we do!

  18. Whenever I have attempted homemade breaded foods, the breading falls off as soon as the food hits the oil. Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong? With the food allergies in my house, it would be fun to acquire this skill in order to customize recipes.

    1. I'd make sure the food is dry before dipping it in the batter...pat well with paper towel or even dust with a little flour. Also, it needs to set up before going in the oil, so let it sit 5-10 minutes so the breading adheres better. Hope that works for you!

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the tips. I've done the drying thing, but I've never let it sit. Boom, milk/egg, boom breading, boom into the oil. Hmmm. I wonder how many jalapeños I've got out in the garden right now....

  19. Sitting here in the Hampton Inn in Mystic Connecticut having breakfast. Kai doesn't eat much of the motel breakfast so we saved leftovers from dinner last night - pizza and fried pickles! First time we ever had fried pickles... not really my thing but Kai loves them!
