Deep Fried Pickles

I never would have thought deep fried pickles would be something I’d ever eat. I’ll admit though, I tried these and they were actually really delicious. Who knew? This recipe for Deep Fried Pickles is so easy, you can whip it up in no time and make a fabulous appetizer for a get together or even a potluck! They’ll be a hit!

With summer fast approaching and the fun times to be had at fairs and carnivals, both of which we never can get to with our lack of vehicle and licenses so we make do and create fun fair and carnival treats at home. The deep fried pickle I’ve seen done different ways, and in a couple of restaurants but my kids had no idea it was even a thing. When we whopped these up Jackson was the first one to try them and he loved them!

Really easy, really tasty and really crunchy on the inside these deep fried pickles quickly became a family favourite and didn’t last very long before the kids gobbled them all up! I couldn’t believe it when my five year old was taking them and before I knew it the whole bowl was gone!

Ingredients for this recipe:

  • 1cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch of pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • Oil for frying
  • 8 baby dill pickles

Directions to make these yummy pickles:

  1. Heat oil in a large pot to 365
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk eggs and milk, set aside
  3. In a medium bowl mix your dry ingredients well
  4. Dry your pickles off well with paper towel
  5. Dip a pickle in the egg mixture, roll in bread crumbs and repeat
  6. Continue for all other pickles and fry 4 at a time for 4 – 5 mins
  7. Drain on paper towel and serve up with some ranch dressing or by themselves

If you’ve tried these delicious fried pickles before at a fair or carnival then you’ll lose these. They are full of pickle flavour and have a delicious crispy coating that is to die for! I love deep fried (or air fryed) foods, and although I’m not the biggest pickle fan — these were really good!

Have you ever watched those tv shows that show all the different types of carnival and fair foods? You can deep fry just about everything, and they do! It’s really something else. I’ve never tried anything crazy, but I’ve seen deep fried chocolate, ice cream, butter… You name it, I’m sure they can do it. Not too sure how good it will be but people will try just about anything once it seems! These are delicious and probably the least weird out of everything you can deep fry!

Enjoy!
