Excellent! After I patted the pickle slices dry, I put them in flour; then egg; and then the bread crumb mixture. I then put them on a parchment paper-lined pan and put them in the freezer for a couple hours. I think that really helped the breading to stay on. You may also omit the pepper(s) if you want it kid-friendly or you don't like spicy. Minus the peppers, it tasted just like those at the Quaker Steak and Lube restaurants! I found that the dill pickle slices work much better than spears.

These were fantastic!!! I added some dill weed to the bread crumb mixture, and worcestershire sauce to the beaten eggs. I'd recommend double dipping so you have a good crispy coating. They turned out great! Will definitely make again!!

I have fried pickles all the time, but I never added any spice. These are great. The ones I make I coat in cornmeal, because I first had them at a catfish place that did the same, but now this way I have a different way to fry my pickles..
