These fried pickles are easy to make at home and are a great game-day or party snack.


  • 1 small jar 16 oz of sliced dill pickles
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs


  1. Pour about 2 inches of oil in pot being used for frying. Heat to 350°F.

  2. In a small bowl, mix together flour and breadcrumbs. Keep the buttermilk in a separate bowl. Dip pickle slice in buttermilk, then flour mixture, then again in buttermilk and again in flour mixture, so there is a double coat. 

  3. Gently place into hot oil. Repeat with other pickles. Fry a few at a time until they are golden brown. Remove finished pickles from hot oil and place on a paper towel to drain some of the oil. Repeat process with remaining pickles.
