Fried Pickles Recipe with Spicy Ranch Dressing

For the fried pickles:

  1. 1 small jar thick-sliced dill pickles
  2. 1 cup flour
  3. ¼ teaspoon paprika
  4. ¼ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning (optional)
  5. ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  6. ½ teaspoon pepper
  7. 1 egg
  8. 1/3 cup milk
  9. 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  10. 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  11. ½ teaspoon salt

For the spicy ranch:

  1. 1/3 cup Ranch dressing (use your favorite brand or make your own)
  2. 1-2 teaspoons hot sauce

To make the pickles:

  1. In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat 1-inch of vegetable oil over medium heat to 365 degrees.
  2. Meanwhile, in a flat bowl, combine and whisk flour, paprika, Old Bay, garlic powder and pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, Worcestershire, hot sauce, milk and salt. Set that aside next to the first bowl.
  4. Next, we prepare the pickles. Place a layer of paper towels on a plate, and lay pickles in a flat layer on top. Dab the juices off the top of the pickles with another paper towel.
  5. Time to set the dipping station. Take your plate of pickles and line it up next to the flour and egg mixtures, and add another clean plate on the other end.
  6. Dip a pickle into the flour, flip it over several times to coat.
  7. Dip the pickle into the egg wash quickly, just to get it wet.
  8. Then, dip the pickle back into the flour, and flip it around in there several times to coat it well.
  9. Lay dipped pickle on to the clean plate, and repeat with all pickles.
  10. Frying time. Move your dipped pickles over to the stove top, and prepare a draining station by lining a plate with paper towels.
  11. Using tongs or chopsticks, drop a few pickles into the hot oil. Be careful not to overcrowd the pot. Having too much in there can bring down the temperature of the oil.
  12. Fry pickles until golden brown, then remove from oil and drain on your draining station.

To make the spicy ranch:

  1. Easy. Just combine ranch dressing with hot sauce until it’s to your liking.
  2. Enjoy!
