      Fried Dill Pickles

      Fried Dill Pickles with Ranch Dressing from Everyday Good Thinking | @HamiltonBeach

      Do you know what food tastes good fried? Trick question. All of them! But there are some things you may not have thought to fry that lend themselves well to the irresistible crunch of an expertly fried dish. Dill pickles are one of these things. They turn out crispy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside, with a sour and salty flavor that’s just a touch sweeter than your normal pickle. If you want a good side and a creative substitute for the average french fry, you should give these a try.

      Yield: Yields 12
      Author: Hamilton Beach Test Kitchen


      • Vegetable oil for frying
      • 1 jar (24 oz.) kosher dill pickles, well drained and patted dry
      • 2 large eggs, beaten
      • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
      • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
      • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
      • 1 teaspoon salt
      • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


      1. Pour oil into deep fryer and preheat to 375F.
      2. Place pickles and eggs in large bowl, toss until well coated.
      3. In large resealable plastic bag, add panko bread crumbs, flour, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper. Seal bag and shake.
      4. Add half of the pickles to bag. Seal bag and shake until pickles are well coated.
      5. Place a single layer of pickles in deep fryer basket. Cook for 4 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining pickles.
      6. Serve with ranch dressing, if desired.


      We enjoyed frying these pickles in the Cool Touch Deep Fryer (35020). They make a great appetizer, game-time snack or finger food.
