I had fried pickles once at a restaurant and decided to make them for myself. This is how I do it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (24 ounce) jar pickle spears
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 2 -3 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 cups vegetable oil (enough to cover the surface of a skillet 1 inch deep)


  1. Put the flour, eggs, and crumbs into separate bowls.
  2. Put oil in pan, heat on medium.
  3. For each pickle:.
  4. Cover the pickle in flour by dipping it in the bowl and working on it from there.
  5. Then, dip the pickle in the eggs and quickly cover it in egg.
  6. Next, dip the pickle into the bread crumbs and quickly cover the pickle in bread crumbs.
  7. You have to move quickly or the egg will slide off of the pickle.
  8. GENTLY place the pickle in the hot oil.
  9. (CAUTION: Pickles are mostly water, so oil will pop at you).
  10. Once the pickle is a nice golden brown color, remove from oil and place on a paper towel covered plate. Repeat until you are out of pickles!
  11. Enjoy!
