Arkansas Fried Pickles
Fried Pickles? YES! These pickles are absolutely delicious and super easy to make! Serve with ranch dressing and enjoy this fried delicacy!
- 30 ea dill chip pickles
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1/2 cup corn meal
- 1/2 ts pepper
- 1/2 ts salt
- 1/2 ts cayenne
- vegetable oil
- Ranch dressing to serve
Pat dry your pickles.
Lightly whisk the egg and 1 tbsp milk in a small bowl. Set aside.
Prepare cornmeal mixture - add the pepper, salt, and cayenne to the cornmeal in it's own bowl.
Dip each chip into the egg and milk mixture (let excess run off) and then coat in the cornmeal mixture.
In the meantime, pour enough vegetable oil into a heavy skillet to cover it in about 1/2 inch of oil.
Heat the oil on med high until it is shimmering.
Drop each pickle into the oil and turn over after about 20-30 seconds. You may need to keep turning the pickles a few times until both sides are golden brown.
Place the fried pickles onto a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil.
That's it! Enjoy your pickles on their own, or dipped into a delicious Ranch dressing, and enjoy a taste of Arkansas!
Please note: this recipe is easily halved. Do use 1 egg and 1 tbsp milk but halve all the other ingredients for 2 servings. You will have some of the egg and milk mixture leftover. I microwaved the leftover mixture and gave it to my dog Toby. No waste! :-)
