Oven "Fried" Pickles with Skinny Herb Buttermilk Ranch Dip



Cornmeal panko herb crusted dill pickles baked in the oven until golden and crisp. Have you ever had fried pickles?

Fried pickles to a New Yorker is quite uncommon, alien actually! But in the South they are wildly popular. The first time I tried fried pickles was at a restaurant in DC, I found myself trying to decide if I liked them, yet oddly reaching for seconds and thirds.


Since then I have had many requests for a make-over and finally tackled the request.

Baking them worked out great, the crumbs stuck perfectly and with a generous amount of oil sprayed on top, they baked to a golden crisp. You can easily make 1/2 batch (1-16 oz jar) for less people. If you are watching your sodium, you may not want to make them unless you can find low sodium dill pickles.

As a base I started with a version Mary from Mary's Bites shared with me, which I slightly adapted it to suit my taste. Hope you Southerners and even all you Yankees enjoy!!

Ingredients:
  • 2 -16 oz jars (48 slices) sliced oval dill hamburger pickles, I used Vlasic
  • 1/2 cup of Panko crumbs
  • 1/4 cup of cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1/4 tsp of smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1/4 cup dried parsley
  • 1/8th tsp kosher salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • olive oil spray (about 1 tsp)

For the Ranch Dip:

  • 1/4 cup fat free sour cream
  • 1/4 cup fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp light mayo
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh chives 1/4 tsp salt
  • freshly ground pepper to taste 
  • 1 tsp white balsamic vinegar 
  • 1/3 cup 1% low fat buttermilk


Directions:

Make ranch dip by combining all the dip ingredients and refrigerate until pickles are done.

Place pickles to drain on paper towels.


Mix crumbs and flour together along with paprika, parsley, and half the chipotle powder and salt.

Whisk eggs and egg whites in a bowl and season with remaining chipotle powder.  

Dip pickles in egg mixture and then into the crumb mix, pressing down on the crumbs. 

Heat oven to 450°F along with 2 baking sheets. When the oven reaches 450°, remove baking sheets and spray with olive oil spray; place pickles on the baking sheets and spray the tops of the pickles with the more oil.  Bake 8-10 minutes, turn and spray if needed and cook an additional five minutes. Remove pickles from cooking sheet and serve hot with dip.

  9. I really only like refrigerated pickles, like Claussen, but they don't make the chip kind. Do you think this would work with spears? Or would they be soggy. I could always buy whole ones & slice them myself. What do you think?

    1. Claussen makes sandwich slices

    2. I have had fried pickle spears and they work, but, in my opinion, are not as good as the chips. I would just slice whole pickles!

    3. I would buy them whole and slice them.

  10. I live in Canada and these have been cropping up in restaurants and pubs all over the last couple years. I find them incredibly addictive. I prefer the quartered spear versions myself. I think I'll have to give this a try sometime soon!

  12. Hi Gina,

    Do you think I could make these gluten free by omitting the Panko bread crumbs and using gluten free flour instead of regular flour? I have been dying for "fried" pickles, and can't have them at restaurants ever since I found out I have a gluten allergy.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maybe using Mary's Gone Cracker's Gluten Free Crumbs along with the corn meal. I bet they would be good!

      Delete
    2. Panko bread crumbs are light and flakey, that's how they get criser than regular bread crumbs so Idk what to sub thats gluten free.

      Delete
  13. I'm like the above Anonymous when it comes to pickles. I'd buy the whole ones and slice them. Slices are much better than spears. You could also buy the sliced Claussen that are cut lengthwise.

  35. This dish is very odd. i never heard of pickles fry. Any dish which is fried in oil is very tasteful. They provide different taste to it. It is nice to taste.

  60. I am also a Long Islander who has never had this dish until one day when I was visiting Memphis. Like you Gina, as I was eating them, I first thought, this is kind of strange, this tastes a little odd, and then found myself loving them and wanting more. I couldn't stop eating them. lol. Thanks for the healthier version. Can't wait to try them.

    7. I was just thinking EXACTLY the same thing. I want to see if a bunch of people love how they came out.

      Gina, I'm sure you love them, otherwise you wouldn't post. But everyone knows palates are different. I think it's helpful to see how people describe them in their own way. I also appreciate when comments reflect changes or adaptations.

      Delete
    8. I really agree with this comment also and think about this constantly. I think for people that really do cook and try recipes it can be frustrating to scroll through endless comments that are really just commenting on food eye candy. It is wonderful to see comments that are actually substantive and ask questions, have tried the recipe, etc. I generally try not to comment unless I have a question or have actually tried the recipe but felt compelled to voice my agreement with this commenter.

  72. I think it's hard to get the real points, I haven't made these yet, but do you actually use up all of the egg and breadcrumb mixture? I bet there is leftovers in each dipping bowl and therefore those extra calories will not be consumed. I'm sure the points are low for just the pickles without the dip, but can't seem to figure out just how low.

  80. Just as a tip for buying pickles- Vlasic fills their jars with 50% pickles and 50% brine, but Mt. Olive fills theirs with 60% pickles and 40% brine! If you're looking at cost, you can squeeze a few more pickles from Mt. Olive, and they have a 40% reduced sodium version :)

  88. Omg! These turned out great, better then the real fried ones I've tried! I didn't have chipotle spice so just used a sweet and spicy spice instead. I loved how the breading turned out also, so I'm going to try it as an onion ring batter...can't wait:) thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. At first bite I loved them, but then the sodium was overwhelming. Could it be from the Panko or can I attribute all the salt to the pickles? Wondering if the Mt. Olive pickles instead of Claussen would really make a difference in the sodium count.

    Love this site, and this is the first recipe that I'm having trouble with. Also wondering if it could be because I used regular paprika and omitted the chipotle. Would those two ingredients make a difference in the saltiness?

  90. Gina, you just made my year! I love pickles of pretty much any variety but fried dill pickles are one of my all time FAVORITE appetizers, and I can't resist them any time I see them on a menu. It will be nice to have a healthy version I can make at home! Speaking of pickles, grilled dill pickles are pretty delicious too, (something about them being hot just makes them taste better) but like I said, I'm a pickle person ;p

  92. To me, fried pickles have always looked incredibly unhealthy. These look SO good - piled with herbs and a dip. Sounds like a great appetizer for this weekend.

  93. Made these tonight along with the zucchini burgers! I liked the pickles, my husband thought my breading was too thick. The flour did clump, so maybe next time I sift it? Either way, a much enjoyed side dish!

    ReplyDelete
  94. OMG I made these last Friday and they were so fantastic. I didn't need the flour in the mix the panko and cornmeal stuck to the egg coating and they were super crispy. I didn't have the ingredients on hand for the the dip except FF Greek Yogurt and FF mayo so combined this with some Franks Red Hot Sweet with Heat Sauce...What a great combo with the tangy/spicy pickles! Love all your recipes!!

  100. I just made these and they turned out really yummy. Word of warning though, don't coat them TOO much with the breading mixture. Mine turned out a little to crumbly (but still delicious). Also, use a fine ground corn meal. Not medium or coarse ground. I used medium ground and the pickles were too crunchy, and not in a scrumptious fried food sort of way. :-) Thanks Gina! I really did love the recipe, I just did a few things wrong! :D

  103. this sounds amazing. i am obsessed with fried pickles, but i really dont love the thought of eating fried stuff. so this is perfect.

  111. My husband absolutely LOVES pickles so we had to try these. We both thought the pickles and dip were awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  112. The recipe calls for corn meal, but wasn't in the instructions. I assume it went with the panko/flour mixture. These were good, but the breading & eggs only were enough to do one jar of oval pickles. I counted, and there were approx 36 pickles in the one jar. It made a LOT of ranch too, which I wasn't thrilled with. They were good without the dip. You have to love pickles for this recipe. It's a little on the salty side for me. I love your recipes, but this one just wasn't for me. :(

  117. These were surprisingly good. Just be sure to use pickles you actually like by themselves. I made the mistake of buying cheap pickles, only to find I didn't like them out of the jar. They were actually good after baking them, but they would have been much better with a better quality pickle.

  120. Is there a way to reheat these? I know they'd get soggy in the microwave...maybe in the oven for a couple minutes?

  121. Is it really 1/4 cup dried parsley? Did you dry your own? I'm trying to figure out where to get that much! Can't wait to try these out!

  124. I'm staring suspiciously at a pile of these things. They are terrible... They taste like dried out pickles and flour. Avoid them like the plague!

  126. I made these just like the recipe and everyone thought they were fantastic. I want to make again for a party but will need to make them ahead of time. Any thoughts on how to reheat?

  130. These were great! I had six of the huge slices (which may have elevated the calorie count a bit) but they were filling. I didn't have chipotle powder, but I used a bit of cayenne pepper which was delicious and spicy. I'll definitely be making this more often.
