Fried Dill Pickles Recipe from addapinch.com

Have you ever tried a fried dill pickle?

There is nothing like them!

A tart dill pickle encased in a crispy, crunchy coating that is just perfect for snacking. I remember growing up, my family would drive over to a restaurant in Anniston, Alabama that served the best fried dill pickles I’d ever eaten.

They were legendary.

And they were an appetizer that if you ordered them, you better believe there wouldn’t be any left by the time you were ready to enjoy your supper!

While we loved their catfish and other dishes, I have to say that the fried dill pickles were most likely what drew us in time and again!

After I was married, I started making them myself. With just five simple ingredients that I generally have on hand in my pantry, I can generally have these babies ready on a moment’s notice.

I’m not 100% sure that’s a good thing. But, with my son and his buddies, it just seems like teenage boys are always starving. These definitely hold them over while supper’s cooking!

Here’s my Fried Dill Pickles recipe. They couldn’t get much easier!

  1. I was a cook at a restaurant, we dipped the pickles in an egg wash before putting in the cornmeal mix. The egg wash was a mixture off egg and milk wisked together.

  2. Restaurents serve them up north but the serve them with a spicy sauce thats to die for! I’m not a fan but my daughter is.

  3. 5 stars
    I’ve made these for parties and there were never any left for me by the time I got to the plate. Yours are prettier than mine were so I’m going to use your recipe next.

      In baking section at grocery store you might find stone ground cornmeal(not likely in most places) then there is cornmeal mix, which is cornmeal with salt and baking powder already added. It is ready for mixing with milk,eggs and oil to make cornbread. Hope this helps.

    2. Cornmeal mix is a combination of cornmeal, salt, and baking powder, also called Self-rising Cornmeal Mix. Where we live the only one that I can buy is Aunt Jemima brand.
