Fried Dill Pickles

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.

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