You have to try these at least once. They are absolutely delicious... dip them in a little ranch dressing and you'll be addicted! Use your favorite cucumber pickles (I've only tried Dills, but Sweets might be good too!)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • oil (for frying)
  • 10 pickles (whole or spears)
  • 12 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning, blend (I use Montreal Steak Spice, but Mrs. Dash or similar product will work)


  1. Heat oil.
  2. Remove any excess liquid from pickles by blotting on paper towel.
  3. Place flour in a plastic ziptop bag and add pickles, shake well to coat.
  4. Beat Egg and 1 Tbsp of water together in a bowl.
  5. Combine Bread Crumbs and Seasoning in a second ziptop bag.
  6. Take 1 floured pickle and dip into egg mixture. Shake lightly to remove excess egg and place in Bread Crumbs. Shake Bag.
  7. Repeat for all pickles.
  8. Fry until golden brown.
  9. Serve with Ranch Dip.

These are so addicting it aint funny. I made these as part of my finger foods for the Bowl games. Everyone enjoyed them. I did add 1/2 a pouch of Hidden Valley Ranch Packet to the bread crumb mix. Yumm-o!! Thanks for posting a great recipe

Like others that have tried this recipe we used a whole packet of Hidden Valley Ranch powder. We also deep fried the coated pickles until they were golden brown. I have to say they are the best deep fried pickles we ever tasted. I am totally addicted. Thank you for a fantastic recipe!!!
