Fried Dill Pickles
Dill pickle slices are breaded, then deep fried in peanut oil. A great snack.

give this recipe 4 of 5 as is...was very tasty and great with ranch. took away 1 star b/c it was a bit salty...try 1/4 tsp. or omit all together. second time added 2 tsp. franks hot sauce to milk mixture and 3/4 tsp. cayenne pepper for more flavor. this makes it 5 of 5...not spicy at all just a little more flavor...just as good as hooters!!!!Read More
Jeez... I hate to be the odd person out here but I really disliked these. I was so excited to try them too! I love pickles and thought these would be awesome. I hated the texture of the pickles after they were fried. They became soggy and slimy and retained none of their great crunch. Sorry, I guess this recipe just wasn't for me.Read More

These were definitely a hit. I used zesty pickle spears instead of slices (they retain less oil than an equal weight of slices AND it takes less time to coat and fry them all), added hot sauce to the egg mixture, and added garlic salt rather than plain to the flour. I also tossed a couple of teaspoons of steak seasoning to the flour. I made my husband test them before we left for the party, and he approved. I'm glad I made two jars of pickles, but I wish I had saved one or two for myself!
This is great!!! We were down south last week and had fried pickles at two different restaraunts. It was the first time i had them and I was in love. When we got home, we had to replicate them. Got on allrecipes.com and found this one. The only difference is that we used a skillet and added cayanne. For dipping we used ranch with dill. The breading sticks to these much better than the kind we had down south. :)
I've been meaning to rate these for over a year...This is one of my husbands favorite snack/side dish when we have some sort of sub-type sandwich or hamburgers. I usually add a little more pepper to them when they come out of the pan just because that's what he likes. I've also thrown a handful of panko crumbs into the mix at times for a slightly different texture. Either way these are good. Serve with ranch dressing.
I had fried pickles at a small diner in Charlotte for the first time. I never thought anyone could come close. Wow this is the best recipe for fried pickles ever. Almost better than the diner. Loved them!
Added 2t Frank's hot sauce and 2 t cayanne and these turned out AWESOME! Be sure to eat it with Hidden Valley's homemade buttermilk ranch prepared according to the back of the packet.
I was introduced to these at the Pickle Factory Restaurant Bar at Pepin WI. It is located on Lake Pepin on the Mississippi River and is at a wharf area. Of course they are famous for the Fried Dill Pickles. It is a cool popular place if you every get to Wisconsin. I crave these and this is a great recipe. Not the healthiest so that is the 4 star but sometimes we eat things not too healthy. I do like some panko crumbs mixed in with this (1/2 c.). It seems lighter and a different batter. They serve it with Ranch Dressing but I am going to play with a little hot sauce in it. Now I can make these at home and not have to drive 500 miles.
I grew up in the South but I had never heard of fried dill pickles! I'm surprised my grandmother didn't know about these... I fixed them just like the recipe said but instead of deep frying, I put then in a cast iron skilled and fried then on all four sides until they were golden brown and crispy. I'll make these again....
awesome!!!! so delicious!!.my teenage boys loved them!!
This recipe is the best.
This recipe was a huge hit, and extremely excellent dipped in ranch!!!

Fabulous recipe!! These are better than any I have had in restaurants. Make your own ranch dip for an extra special party treat.
I just don't think you can go wrong w/ fried pickles. These were awesome. I do skip dipping them in the milk and butter as the batter sticks to them w/out it.
the breading is perfect. i would add garlic and hot sauce, as others have suggested. i sprinkle it with parmesan before i serve it. i skipped the worcestershire. i add 3T olive oil to the oil to make it crisp better. i don't know why it works, it just does. learned that from making chalupas.
I made this recipe for the playoffs and had a bunch of friends over...they all LOVED them! We usually go to Hooter's for our fried pickles and these taste exactly the same! I served mine with spicy ranch dressing for dipping. Fantastic recipe! Thanks so much!
These are GREAT! The drier the pickles, the better since it holds the batter better.
Numnumnumnumnum!!! These were excellent (and I've had a few fried pickles in my lifetime!). The batter stuck nicely to the pickles, which is a problem we've had in the past with other recipes. We used Claussen pickles and sliced them a little (just a smidge) thicker than your normal pre-sliced pickles. I would recommend after dipping in the egg mixture then the flour, wait about 20 minutes or so, then dust with a little more flour. We also tried this batter with some jalapeno slivers (even better than the pickles I think). We'll be making these often, thanks!
Instead of flour my mom and I used Tempura Batter Mix Extra Crispy. Pretty good. Couple suggestions; repeat the coating step atleast 3x, cut the pickles into bite size, also like others said use some hot sauce in the milk mix.
D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!! Better than nay I've had at a restaurant. My pickles remained crist, and didn't become soggy. I used a presto deep fryer, and vlasic pickle slices.
These turned out great! I'm not usually good at frying foods, but these pickles were delicious. I didn't have Worcestershire sauce, so I substituted Dale's marinade sauce. Yum!
I have made these twice and each time they were a big hit in our home. I followed the recipe exactly and used ranch dressing for dipping sauce. They are very similar to the fried pickles that one of the local bar/grills in our town is known for.
Tastes just like what we eat at a Lowcountry restaurant in South Carolina. I chop pickles into round slices, do not use the Worchestershire and do add 1/4 t. of paprika to the dry mixture. These are delicious dipped in ranch!
these were so so so so good!!!!!! Made as directed but only had whole pickles in a huge jar. What a wonderful treat! Have made 3 times now.
This was definetly different... A little too ...greasy american for me, but I enjoyed making them. Batter was not my favorite also.
I've had fried pickles at restaurants back east, but this wasn't even close. Won't be making these again.
I live down south and crave fried pickles being pregnant. I now don't have to stop at my favorite diner on the way home from work, I just cook up a batch everyday! This is quick and easy!
Yum. I used buttermilk because it was close to being out of date. and I didn't have any worchestershire sauce, so i used steak seasoning for grilling. Still they were delicious. One thing I do differently is to pat the pickles dry, batter, and then chill in the fridge before frying. seems to keep the batter on better.
These were really pretty good, but they were super salty. I would omit all of the salt. They're super good dipped in sour cream which cuts some of the salt flavor.
I just joined! Im so excited! this recipe will be the first in my recipe box. i luv pickles and when i go to mayflower i always get the fried dill pickles as an appetizer but i went to the one in reidsville tonight with our family friends and they didnt have the fried pickles! and one of our friends loves pickles like me so we were devistated! so he asked me to research dill pickle recipes so when i go over on friday we can make them! yay!!!!!!!!!! :p
These were great! I was so glad to come across this recipe since I lost mine a while back! We had them at our tailgate and everyone loved them! A couple of my inlaws from up north in Wash. state came down for thier first football game had never heard of these before. They were a little leary of them at first, but once they tried them they kept eating them! They both said they need to come to MO more often now and try more things they don't have up there! Thanks so much for replacing my lost recipe! :)
I didn't use near that much flour. These are good, I prefer them with garlic chile sauce - yum! My 5 yr old loved them!
These were good as written, but needed a little something. I added a few drops of tabasco sauce to the egg mixture, and some garlic & onion powder to the flour mixture. This was great for breading zucchini as well!
Very tasty! I threw some garlic and some cayenne powder in the flour coating mix.
I have made these many times, and each time received rave reviews. Wonderful dipped in ranch dressing.
these were good, but not the best I've ever had. The batter needed to be thicker, I think.
These were too plain. The coating needed more flavor.
made these exactly as the recipe stated and they were perfect!
My husband loved it...
Good recipe. We didn't use all the ingredients for time sake but the pickles turned out good just using the egg wash & flour. Dipping in Ranch dressing is great.
They were ok, but nothing like the resturant one's I've ordered. I even tried playing with the coating, but it's just not the same. Sorry.
Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! :) This recipe was better than any that I have eaten at a restaurant.
Husband loves the fried pickles they serve at our favorite pub, so I thought I'd give these a whirl. I definitely recommend using peanut oil - things turn out so much more crispy and less greasy than using veg oil. Served them with some Ranch dressing. Good stuff!
I added hot sauce (to taste or preference...mine was 1 tsp. I like the flavor without it setting my mouth on fire) and used dill pickle spears...the dill hamburger chips were too salty after cooking them....and left out the salt. This recipe was soooo easy and flavorful....loved it!!! Thank you :-)
Delicious, easy, but MESSY! We tried the *dipping them twice* process AND only once - we prefer the "single dip" method. Less coating on the outside and they cook better and look prettier. Served with honey mustard for dipping.
Pretty good. They definitely need a little extra flavor and no added salt. I added Tony's cajun seasoning to the flour. This is a really easy recipe and they turn out nice and crisp!
I really enjoyed making these pickles. However, after several trials, my family and I decided garlic powder and a little more pepper makes this a much more delectable treat!
Yummy! I fried these on the stove as when I used them in the deep fryer they made a horrible mess. ;o) Thanks for sharing!!!
Loved these. I used the flat dill sandwich pickles, which makes ALL the difference in the world - they're SUPER easy to fry and turn. I normally have an issue when I fry pickles with the batter not sticking to them, but I think the 1 T. of flour in the egg mixture did the trick. I double-dipped them as the recipe called for, but I am big on the fried part, so I will triple-dip next time I make them. The Worchestire gives them a nice little kick/flavor. These were awesome!!
This recipe tasted almost dead-on to fried pickles I had eaten in a restaurant in Georgia over the summer. The South can come into my Pennsylvania kitchen any time! Hint: Slightly increase ground pepper to a teaspoon or so.
Very good. Tastes very much like Fried Pickles made by one of our local pubs.
I tried this & to my surprise for it to be this simple it was delish! My family wanted more!
I love this recipe. The only thing I changed was to add a little more pepper than the recipe called for because I like pepper...LOL. I will definitely be making these again.
Sensational!!!!!!!! We didn't have Worcestershire sauce and they were still dynamic.
Not a fan of this recipe...i've had better. Prefer to use bread crumbs for crispiness!
WOW, so good, never would have thought to do this!!
Great and easy recipe. Used seasoned salt and made a horseradish dipping sauce...ONO! will definately be making this again soon.
Delicious! The hardest part, really, is breading the pickles since it's so time-consuming. I had a teaspoon of Frank's Red Hot to the batter and served with homemade ranch! I can't wait to make them again!
Made this with pickle spears for my daughter's birthday party and everyone loved them. I love how the batter stayed on so well because of the time in the fridge! Much better than the chips I used to fry and always had batter falling off! We will have these again!
Excellent recipe! Had fried pickles out at a restaurant and decided to try my hand at it using this recipe. My family loved them! The next time we ordered them out at a restaurant no one liked them-they said this recipe was so much better! Definitely use good pickles, and we dipped in Cajun ranch dressing (8 oz. of favorite ranch dressing with 2-3 tsp Cajun seasoning) Thanks for sharing :)
I loved this recipe! I even forgot to put the salt and pepper in the flour and just put it on the hot pickles when they were hot. I dipped them in buttermilk ranch dressing. I used the sandwich pickles. The dip and flour is enough to make more than just a jar of pickles. I may reduce the amounts next time if I'm just making these for myself. Though it's great if you're making these for a party.
I had fried pickles during a trip to New Orleans and I fell in love with them! This recipe was exactly as I remembered. My husband finally understands why I was always raving about fried pickles, he loves them too now!
Very good recipe- we made a batch as is and it was really good. Then we did a batch with extra seasonings in the wet mixture and the dry mix. Sooo much better! I used a season salt for the dry and a garlic sauce in the wet mix... couldnt cook them fast enough for everyone! Will definitely use this base recipe again!
These were really good!!! It took me a few tries to get the amount of batter just right on the pickle, but once i did, man they were wonderful
The batter is WAY too thin and the recipe calls for too much flour/dry ingredients. I added an extra egg and flour to the batter and took out more than 1/2 of flour and added plain bread crumbs to the dry ingreds, plus a lot of spices. My first batch (from AllRecipes) was so bland and tasteless...I working on my 2nd batch as I type this. Good luck!
I have tried several different recipes and this is what I've been looking for. It's a nice batter that provide just enough thickness to give the pickle a bit of something extra. The batter, however, is a bit plain. I added garlic salt instead of plain salt which gave it a little more flavor. Thanks for sharing.
Delicious and easy! Just the right amount of crispy and pickle-y. Sometimes the restaurants add too much breading and you lose the taste of the pickle; this recipe hit the spot... Especially when served with Chuy's Creamy Jalapeno dip!
I made these upon my husbands request. He said they were good.
Quick Easy and Fun!.... would be much better with a spice element such as cayenne pepper. Batter stuck on great... maybe a little too much, next time I will try just one dip in mixture and flour. Overall great
Delicious! :) Husband loved them and has asked for them every night since I made them.
Great recipe! I'm so glad to finally be able to make thes at home! I wish I would have had this recipe when I was pregnant with my second child! (Fried pickles was my #1 craving during that pregnancy) :)
Loved them!! I could not fry them fast enough for my family. I served them with ranch dressing. My daughters are begging me to make them again.
Made this will dill spears instead of slices. My whole family loved them! Definitely a recipe we will keep.
yummy- I used whole pickles and just sliced.
These were awsome!!!! Followed reciepe exactly and used ranch for dipping. Everybody loved them and we will make these again on our next fried food night.
These were great, but it was messier than i figured it would be. It's a keeper.
I am always in the kitchen, and I love trying new recipes or finding the "southern foods" my husband loves. We're newly married, and I am so glad to say that my first attempt at this was a success! I surprised my husband with these, and he has me make them every chance we get. = ]
made them for the first time tonight!and we loved them!
Fantastic! Next time I´m making more so I don´t have to fight with my son over them! lol I used a little less salt and added a pinch of cayenne pepper. The whole family loved them!
Easy to make. The taste is just okay unless you have a great dipping sauce (I used the sauce from the blooming onion). DH thinks it'd be much better on a burger or in a sandwich. Fun to try and the kids loved them.
They are awesome!
Easy to make. We love pickles but we didn't like these and won't be making them again.
Tasty! I followed the recipe exactly, the only change I made was to the method. I dipped in the egg mixture, then the flour, then back into the egg and then back into the flour and into the fryer. This makes a thick, crispy coating. Mix up some mayo (Hellmans) and fresh garlic and dip away!
This recipe rocks! Every summer party, I am tasked to make this and I can't make enough. Great with Southwest dipping sauce.
These were good. Next time I won't use as much milk in the egg mixture.
Great recipe! Very simple. I tweeked it just a lil bit. I doubled the worcestershire sauce and added a 2 tablespoons of cornmeal to the flour and pepper mix. YUM!!
Awesome!! Perfect for those late-night cravings!!
Pretty good... added cayenne pepper to the flour... and hot sauce instead of worchesshire sauce.
Very good stuff!! Love deep fried pickles and this recipe recreates restaurant style quality.
Lol i heard about fried pickles from Snooki, but I'm positive that this recipe delivers a batch of amazing pickles that even she hasn't tried yet! Thanks.
I'm in the military, stationed in Hawaii, and it can be hard to find some of my family's favorites from back home on the islands. My pregnant wife started to crave "frickles", as we call them. Found this recipe and it hit the spot! I added in some garlic powder and a pinch of chili powder to the flour mixture. This recipe is highly-customizable! I'm trying to watch what I eat, but I couldn't help but to have some of these puppies with my light, home-made ranch.
I did the recipe exactly as written, add added some Franks Red Hot sauce to add some spice. They turned out horrible!! The breading was so bland. I will never make these again.
amazing! I added the hot sauce and cayenne pepper to the egg mixture, but also added parsley, Cajun seasoning, and onion powder to the flour mixture. Delish!
Loved this recipe. Made it for the first time yesterday. Used baby kosher dills so the pickles were bite-sized. Added a 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce to the egg mixture and served with a homemade buttermilk ranch dressing for dipping. Would definitely make again. Easy to prepare and do, great as an unexpected appetizer. Let the dill pickles sit out for about an hour after sliced to help dry out a little.
So very delicious! I will definitely make this for future parties again!
Wow! I'd never had fried pickles before but came across this recipe and just had to try them. Note that the recipe does call for double-dipping: Milk-flour-milk-flour. This gives them a nice coating of light batter. Wonderful in ranch dressing. Had them a few times now and get 'cravings' regularly.
I actually LOVE fried pickles. When I became pregnant with my 3rd child it's what I craved. I made these as followed and was not a HUGE fan. They were good but next time I'll have to make sure the oil isn't too hot and I may opt to use breadcrumbs instead, maybe with some spicy seasoning.
Great recipe! Easy and tasty! Good dipped in ketchup or thousand island dressing.
