  1. In a small bowl, mix together the egg, milk, 1 tablespoon of flour, and Worcestershire sauce. In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining flour, salt, and pepper.
  2. Heat oil to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) in a deep-fryer or heavy deep skillet. Dip pickle slices into the milk mixture, then into the flour mixture. Repeat dipping.
  3. Place the pickles carefully into the hot oil. Avoid over crowding by frying in several batches. Fry until pickles float to the surface, and are golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels.

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!!!!

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 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. :)
