  • Oil for frying
  • 1 quart dill pickles cut lengthwise into quarters
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon salt


  1. Pour enough oil into a large deep pot that it comes about half-way up the sides.
  2. Turn on medium to high heat and bring the oil to 390 to 400 degrees.
  3. Dry the pickle slices very well with paper towels.
  4. Pour the buttermilk into a shallow dish and set aside.
  5. Mix together the flour, bread crumbs, and salt in another shallow dish.
  6. Dip each pickle, one at a time into the buttermilk and then into the flour/bread crumb mix.
  7. Carefully place each pickle into the hot oil and cook until golden brown. About two minutes.
  8. Drain on a cooling rack placed above a sheet pan. This will allow the breading to stay crunchy.
