Directions

  1. Combine bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper in a bowl; set aside. Whisk egg and milk together in a separate bowl. Dip dill pickle spears into the egg mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture until well-coated. Dip the pickles in the egg and bread crumb mixtures a second time so each spear is double coated. Arrange pickles in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the breading is set, about 30 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Fry the pickles in the preheated oil until light golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Love these! They taste just like the ones you get at restaurants. I used pickle slices rather than spears because they make crunchier fried pickles and they're easier to eat. When you make the slices there is a lot of the bread crumb coating left over, so it might be a good idea to reduce that part of the recipe. Also, it seemed like there was an awfully lot of milk added to one egg. Less than a cup of milk would probably suffice. I'm going to try these changes next time. I served them with thousand island and it was great! I like ranch, too!

This recipe doesn't work. There is waaaaaay too much milk. A dash of milk at most is all that is needed. The breading all fell off the pickles.

I LOVE deep fried Pickles and was so excited to try this with my husband. I love th recipe except that the breading on my pickles came off some of them in the oil and also slid off when we picked up the pickles :( My oil may not have been right but who knows... I think i will try this awesome beer batter recipe I found on this site to make fish tacos. I would have given it 5 stars if my breading hadnt of fallen off.

i did a trial run and only had some plain bread crumbs and added some Italian seasoning and pepper, garlic powder and cayeene, I used one egg and a little bit of milk, used sliced pickles. It was tasty I think I am going to play around with the seasonings!

They were ok...I don't have much else to say. I mean they are delicous they just don't have the extra zing i was looking for :)

I've never had fried pickles before so I gave it a try. I reduced the amount of milk so the breading would stick better. It was okay, I didn't care for the italian seasoning. I felt like it was too much. It might have been better with bread-n-butter pickles. I'll have to try it next time.

These were fantastic. We used baby pickles, so we didn't have to cut them at all. Going to make them again tonight at a fish fry.
