I felt the need to make these deep fried pickles simply because these are my husbands absolute favorite. My hubby and I first had deep fried pickles at Quaker Steak & Lube, and I was pleasantly surprised that my husband (who is an all time picky eater) loved them. So, I knew I'd have to find a way to replicate and make them at home.

How to Make Hot & Spicy Fried Pickles

Step-by-Step

  1. Please Note *You will need a deep fryer or you can use a dutch oven (or any heavy bottomed or cast iron pot)*
  2. Heat your oil to 350 degrees.
  3. Combine your cup of milk Worcestershire sauce and tbsp pickle juice. Then throw your pickles in the marinade. You may be wondering why pickle juice?!? Well, the pickle juice is mainly vinegar based, and the vinegar helps to turn regular milk into buttermilk. Of course, buttermilk is a thicker milk and it will coat the pickles.
  4. While you're waiting on your pickles to marinade, combine all your dry ingredients (flour, yellow cornmeal, cayenne, salt and pepper). Whisk them to combine them all together.
  5. Take the pickles out of the milk and dredge them in your dry ingredients until it is covered, then dip it back into the milk and then dredge it back in the dry ingredients and put into the fryer. Cook them until the coating is golden brown, lay them out on a paper towel to dry off the excess oil, be sure to let them cool a little bit because they are HOT!
