peanut oil for frying, or as needed
1 (32 ounce) jar
dill pickle slices, drained
Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 (8 ounce) bottle
Excellent! After I patted the pickle slices dry, I put them in flour; then egg; and then the bread crumb mixture. I then put them on a parchment paper-lined pan and put them in the freezer for a couple hours. I think that really helped the breading to stay on. You may also omit the pepper(s) if you want it kid-friendly or you don't like spicy. Minus the peppers, it tasted just like those at the Quaker Steak and Lube restaurants! I found that the dill pickle slices work much better than spears.
Perhaps it was the cheap pickles I used, but next time I will try a batter that also includes flour and milk. The bread crumbs added texture though, which I liked!
These were fantastic!!! I added some dill weed to the bread crumb mixture, and worcestershire sauce to the beaten eggs. I'd recommend double dipping so you have a good crispy coating. They turned out great! Will definitely make again!!
I have fried pickles all the time, but I never added any spice. These are great. The ones I make I coat in cornmeal, because I first had them at a catfish place that did the same, but now this way I have a different way to fry my pickles..
My kids and husband loved these. It was a fun after school snack, and I was able to cook and clean all within 15 minutes.
YUM! I've only made the pickles that were battered before, so I wanted to give this a shot to compare...these were way better, IMO! I LOVED the spicy kick of these! I halved the recipe, but only used 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper because my little guy was eating these too! We really REALLY enjoyed these and I will be making these often! Thanks for sharing. :)
I had fried pickles before and they were really salty. This is the best recipe out there hands down!!!
Update: Made these for my FIL for a Superbowl appetizer. He really did not like them, but I thought they were good! I think fried pickles are an 'aquired taste'! Note to previous reviewer: I think that this might need paprika, maybe 1/4-1/2 tsp.? I am combining this recipe with one a friend gave me, also hers uses beer combined w/ egg to dip in. Might try that, too. Will update on taste.
