Fried Pickles

Raven Higheagle


Living in Texas fried pickles are always a welcome addition to most any party or barbecuing affair. We even make the when we are tailgating. Nowadays you can find them on the appetizer portion of most restaurants too. I thought I'd share the recipe for them so you can make them at your home.
Serve them with ranch dressing and you'll have a winner at your next barbecue.

How to Make Fried Pickles


  1. Pour oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven until the oil is about 1-2 inches up the side of the pan.
  2. Heat oil to 350 degrees.
  3. Strain pickles in a small colander.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and 3/4 cup of beer together.
  5. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.

  9. Place pickles on a plate lined with paper towel and then season with salt and pepper.
