Fried Pickles

There's nothin' like Southern fried pickles for an appetizer before a good home-cooked Southern dinner! Here is a simple, yet tasty recipe for fried pickles.

  • dill pickles
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 envelope dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
  • oil for frying (I prefer peanut oil.)
  • bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing for dipping sauce
  1. Heat oil on medium heat until it reaches 350 degrees. (I use an electric skillet, but I am sure a fryer/Fry Daddy would be fine.)
  2. Drain pickles.
  3. Mix flour & dry dressing mix in 1 gallon Ziploc bag.
  4. Shake several pickles in flour mixture until well coated.
  5. Drop coated pickles into hot oil. Try not to clump them together.
  6. Pickles are done when they float to top of oil.
  7. Drain on several paper towels before serving with ranch dipping sauce.
