  • 16 oz whole dill pickles
  • 3 large eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper optional
  • Neutral oil for frying peanut, vegetable, canola, etc


  • Preheat about 2-inches of oil in a large (8 quart) pot to 350°F. Prepare a tray with double paper towel stack. Set aside.
  • Drain pickle juice from pickles then cut the pickles into ¼ inch slices.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk egg and hot sauce and set aside.
  • In another bowl, add flour, cornmeal, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and cayenne and whisk to combine.
  • Add pickle slices to eggs then dip into flour mixture then shake off excess then lay on a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Drop pickles in hot oil and fry until golden brown on all sides. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.


The thicker you cut your pickles, the longer you will need to fry them.  Very thin pickle slices will fry quite quickly so keep an eye on them.
