Fried Pickles are a delicious snack food that you just have to try. They are perfect to share with friends and families when watching the big sports or at any other time. They can be hard to find in restaurants, so I am excited to share this homemade version with you today!
Pickles are very popular here in the United States as a topping for hamburgers and hot dogs. They come in many varieties – dill, bread and butter, and sweet to name a few. You can use them on their own or you can make dressings with them if you are really adventurous. They come whole, sliced lengthwise, or cut into round discs, and they are delicious!
The first time that I tried fried pickles was in a popular restaurant here in Colorado called Texas Roadhouse. I was a little bit hesitant to try the fried pickles as an appetizer, but I have to say that I ended up loving them. They are especially tasty when they are recently fried.
Since we don’t go out to eat there very often, I decided to make my own version and to create an delicious sauce to accompany them. I have to say, I enjoy my own version even more than the restaurant version. Try them for yourself and put it to the test!
Earlier this year I gave birth to my third son, and one of the side dish options for my meal at the hospital was fried pickles! Now that I wasn’t suffering from heartburn for the first time in nine months, I had to try them. Let me tell you – I fell in love again.
The sauce that I decided to make with my own version is a chipotle-dill crema and it goes perfectly with these delicious fried pickles.
Make sure that you eat these when they are still hot and crispy – you won’t regret it!

Products Used For This Recipe
Fryer: You will need to have a high quality fryer when making these fried pickles. This is a great option, but you can really use any that you want.
Measuring Spoons/Cups: You are going to need to measure all of the different ingredients that you use to make this recipe. I don’t know about you, but my measuring cups always seem to get separated, and sometimes I can’t find the one I need. I recommend this set, because it has the spoons and cups all together, is stainless steel, and has a solid ring to keep them together.
Kitchen Prep Bowls: Since you have to use multiple bowls in this recipe, you should have some good kitchen prep bowls. I like these ones, because they can be used to prep and they are good for serving as well.
Condiment Bowls: These fried pickles go great with many sauces, including our homemade ranch. You will want to have some of these condiment bowls on hand so that you can try it with as many different sauces as you want.
