Homemade Fried Pickles
Baked pickles have the same crispy coating without being fried in oil, making them a healthier choice without sacrificing flavor. And cleanup is a breeze!
PICKLES – Sweet, dill, or spicy, there’s a pickle for every palate! Buy them whole and cut into desired shapes and sizes, or purchase pre-cut jars of spears and rounds. Easy fried pickles can be made with round slices or thinly cut spears like French fries, or they can even be cut into oval slices.
BREADING – Bread crumbs and Panko are always a winning combination because it creates a light, crispy and crunchy coating.
SEASONING – The seasoning for this breading is composed of a simple combination of garlic and hot sauce. However, any complementary seasoning works as long as it doesn’t overwhelm the tangy, vinegary flavor of the pickle. Mix in some powdered ranch dressing, taco seasoning, or a spicy Cajun rub and create a signature recipe!
How To Fry Pickles in Oven
Baked pickles are better than potato chips, and they are super easy to make:
- Combine the flour and seasonings in one bowl, the whisked eggs and hot sauce in another, and the breading ingredients in a third bowl.
- Dip the pickles in the seasoned flour, the egg wash, and then coat in the breadcrumbs.
- Lay pickles on a prepared baking sheet and bake per recipe below, flipping halfway through baking.
Dip For Fried Pickles?
The sky is the limit when it comes to dips for these tasty baked pickles! Ranch is always a go to, but why not try a savory Onion Dip, a fresh and light Tzatziki, or Dill Veggie Dip. Or for a more robust flavor try this Honey Mustard Sauce or Copycat Taco Bell Quesadilla Sauce.
Tips for Success
- For best results, make sure the pickle pieces are very dry so the egg batter and breading adheres properly.
- If you are cutting your own slices from whole pickles, cut them at least ¼” thick or thicker.
- Using a small pair of tongs for each of the breading steps will ensure an even coating and keep your hands free from constant rinsing while you assemble them!
