Restaurants provide fried pickles as an appetizer. Make your own deep fried pickle spears with this simple recipe!


8 spears of quartered pickles

1 cup milk

1 egg

flour (two cups)

1 cup bread crumbs (panko-style)

2 tablespoons powdered mustard

to taste : salt and pepper

4 cups oil for cooking


Set aside a baking sheet lined with tinfoil.

In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and egg. Combine the flour, panko bread crumbs, mustard powder, salt, and pepper in a second shallow dish.

Dip each pickle in the milk and egg mixture, then flip to coat fully in the flour mixture. Arrange the breaded pickles on a baking sheet.

Put the pickle tray in the freezer for 20 minutes (overnight works too).

In a pan, dutch oven, or deep fryer, heat the oil to 375 degrees F. Fry approximately 6 pickles at a time in the oil, flipping once to ensure all sides are golden brown. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Rep with the remaining pickles. Serve immediately.
