Crispy Fried Pickles
Crispy fried pickles made with sliced dill pickles breaded in seasoned flour and fried crispy are a perfect side dish to add to your BBQ!
- For the pickles:
- 12-15 sandwich sliced dill pickles
- 1-2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
- Oil for frying
- For the batter:
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon dill (optional)
In a dutch oven, preheat oil to 360-370 degrees F.
Combine all batter ingredients and stir until smooth, let sit for at least 5 minutes.
Dab pickle slices on paper towels to dry them. Place about 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs in a bowl (add more as needed). If they get wet, they don't stick so its best to work in small batches.
Dip each pickle slice in the wet batter and then gently toss in the breadcrumbs, let sit for a minute or so, this will allow the crumbs to stick better.
Fry in small batches for 3-4 minutes or until brown and crispy.
Serve with ranch or your favorite dip.
