Fried Pickles

Photo from A Chick Who Can Cook Blog

I found this recipe via Pinterest.  I gave them a try tonight.  I lightened up the recipe a bit by using fat free and lower fat products. You can view the original recipe at A Chick Who Can Cook.  In the end, they're still fried pickles, but every little bit counts. 

Fried Pickles
  • 15-20 round pickle slices (I used dill slices)
  • 1/4 cup egg beaters
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire
  • 1/2 cup flour, divided
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • kosher salt
  • oil for frying, such as canola or vegetable

  1. Lay pickle slices on a paper towel and pat dry.
  2. In bowl whisk together egg, milk, a couple drops of hot sauce, Worcestershire and 1/4 cup flour.
  3. In another bowl mix together remaining 1/4 cup flour, panko bread crumbs, garlic powder and ground pepper.
  4. Dip a dried pickle into batter then dredge into panko mixture to coat completely. Transfer to a plate, repeat with remaining pickles. Allow to sit while the oil heats.
  5. Heat 1 inch of oil in a sauce pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil starts to shimmer, sprinkle in a pinch of flour. If it sizzles the oil is hot enough. Fry pickles in batches until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Transfer to paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Serve immediately.

We ate these with ranch dressing.

This looks so good! What type of pickle did you use - dill or the sweeter bread and butter type? Thanks for sharing!
