How Do I Make Homemade Extra-Crispy Fried Pickles?

The key ingredient is Panko Breadcrumbs! Follow these simple steps and your fried pickles will turn out super crispy!

  1. Make your spears thinner by cutting them in half if you feel they are too thick.
  2. Place the flour in a shallow dish and mix in the onion and garlic powders, and add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Whisk the eggs in a separate shallow dish.
  4. Put the panko breadcrumbs in a third shallow dish.
  5. Dredge the pickle spears first in the flour, then the egg, and finally the breadcrumbs.
  6. Let them sit for 5-10 min.
  7. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and fry the pickle spears in batches until golden brown. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

What Is The Secret To Making Extra-Crispy Homemade Fried Pickles?

There are actually two secrets to making fried pickles extra crispy:

  1. Use panko breadcrumbs instead of regular breadcrumbs. Panko breadcrumbs make fried food crunchier because they are made with a technique that creates crustless bread flakes that are slightly jagged and filled with air pockets.
  2. After breading the pickle spears, let them stand for at least 5 minutes before frying them. This makes the bread coating harden a little so it doesn’t fall off while frying.
