Fried Pickles

Short post for y’all today – but I’m sooo behind on every.single.thing.

I’m still excited to share these with you.

IMGP5948Fried Pickles.

I know. So simple.

IMGP5768But damn. Who knew something so easy and weird at the same time would taste so good?

IMGP5787I had them at a restaurant about three years ago and have been meaning to make them since, but I’m just now getting around to it.

IMGP5857It’s called procrastination. I don’t recommend it.

Here’s your printable-

Fried Pickles


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 12 oz jar hamburger pickles
  • Canola or vegetable oil, for frying


  • Combine the flour, cornmeal, salt, pepper and cayenne in a large bowl.
  • Dip each pickle individually in the buttermilk, then dredge in flour mixture (I did mine twice to get a good coating on there).
  • Bring the oil to 350 degrees.
  • Fry the pickles in batches until brown, 1 to 2 minutes, and move to a paper towel lined plate using a slotted spoon.
  • Serve with Ranch dressing.
