Fried Pickles

Today I was at a county fair & we ordered fried pickles.
That is one of my youngest child's favorites things to order when we go out to dinner.
He's like a territorial dog and guards them while staring you down if you take one.
We have only made these twice at home but they are oh so good!

Ingredients are:

1/2 cup of buttermilk
salt to taste
1 16 oz. jar of sliced pickle chips
1/2 cup of flour
1 1/2 cups of cornmeal
2 tsp. of Cajun seasoning, I like to use Tony's Creole Seasoning
Oil for frying

How to make them:

Have a plate with a paper towel ready for the pickles to drain off the oil ready.
Heat oil in a deep fryer or a deep skillet

Mix in a bowl buttermilk, salt, 1 tsp. of Cajun seasoning
In another bowl mix flour, cornmeal & the other tsp. of the Cajun seasoning

Dip pickles one by one in wet mixture then dry mixture
Then place in frying pan
Fry until golden brown
Remove with tongs or scooper place onto plate with paper towel

We use ranch dressing for dipping. 


  1. I love fried pickles! I'll try this recipe! :))

  2. Thanks Judy, I love them too, I really like them best made with the pickle chips. The spears are just a little to much I think.
    Hope you like them!
