Fried Dill Pickles


Canola oil for frying
About 3 cups Claussen pickles sliced about 1/4" thick
1 cup flour
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 cups Panko bread crumbs
2 teaspoons dried dill
2 teaspoons garlic powder
Kosher salt

In a large heavy-bottomed skillet or cast-iron pan, heat enough oil to cover 1/2-inch of the skillet over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 degrees F.

Cut dill pickles into 1/4 inch pieces

Place all pickles and flour in a zip top bag and shake until all pickles are coated

Mix 2 large eggs and 1/2 cup milk in large dish

Mix 2 cups Panko, 2 teaspoons dried dill, and 2 teaspoons garlic powder in plate or dish for coating

Drop flour coated pickles in egg and milk bath and coat completely

Then put pickles into Panko mixture and coat completely

Watch the temperature of oil on stove and do a sample test

Place pickles in batches of 15 at a time, once pickles are placed in oil they are usually ready to come out.  They fry extremely quickly

Buttermilk Ranch Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper

Mix ingredients together and allow to sit in the fridge for about an hour.  Sample and adjust seasoning to taste.
