Love fried dill pickles? My Fried Pickle Dip gives you tart dill pickles, creamy sour cream to mellow them out, and toasted buttery panko breadcrumbs to mimic the crispy fried coating!
Fried Pickle Dip
One of the best appetizers out there are fried pickles! Tart, juicy pickles with crispy, buttery coating. What more could you ask for? I can’t think of a better appetizer, but what if I don’t have time to make the pickles, coat them, fry or bake them, make a dipping sauce, AND clean up the mess that making fried pickles causes?
Check out my Fried Pickle Dip which is everything you love about fried pickles, their dipping sauce, and all without the mess? How about if I told you that you can make it a few days ahead of time?

Fried Pickles with Cornmeal
When I think about fried pickles, which is pretty often I might admit, I think of two things.
- the sour and tart dill pickle, and hope they are thick and not some sliver that disintegrates when it gets fried.
- the buttery, crispy coating holding all that tart juice inside!
If the fried pickle is any good, the coating will be super crispy, not at all greasy, and the pickle inside will be firm and not floppy and soggy. I have tried to make fried pickles at home, all while making a ginormous mess, and one incident where I slipped on the floor from all the splattered grease.
I have tried, deep frying, pan frying, and even baking them in the oven. The one thing I found that made the crispiest coating is Panko breadcrumbs. Lot’s of recipes make fried pickles with cornmeal, but I have found that the small size of the crumb means the fried pickles get soggy much quicker. Trust me when I say, stick to the PANKO!
Deep Fried Pickle Recipe
When I order my fried pickles, I immediately think of what dipping sauce they are coming with. Ranch is the standard but if you bring me a spicy jalapeño ranch, that is even better! I could give you a recipe for a kick-ass Fried Pickle Dipping Sauce but why have a separate sauce when you can get it all together?
My Fried Pickle Dip is just that. A fried pickle AND a dipping sauce all in one bowl! The cool creamy taste of a dipping sauce, the tartness of the pickle, and the crunch of the coating are all in this one recipe.
FAQ about Fried Pickle Dip:
- Q: Can you I use bread and butter pickles?
A: Yes, you can use any pickles that you like!
- Q: Can I use regular breadcrumbs instead of Panko bread crumbs?
A: Yes you can, but I find that they don’t get as crispy due to their smaller size and just end up getting sticky and gummy on the dip.
- Q: Can I use Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese instead of regular cream cheese?
A: Yes, you can, but it will make the dip even tangier.
- Q: Can I serve it with something other than chips?
A: The Fried Pickle Dip tastes great with pretzels and kettle chips, but I haven’t tried it with anything else. If you do, let me know how it turns out!
My Fried Pickle Dip recipe is pretty mild as is, but if you prefer to have it kicked up a notch, add some diced jalapeño, a dash of hot sauce, or a little fresh minced garlic.
