Do you remember when fried pickles first became a “thing”?

Most of my friends were grossed out by them, but I was obsessed. When they started to pop up at local bars or chain restaurants, I was usually the only person in the group who wanted to order them.

I think fried pickles are very much a love them or hate them kind of food. And I’m definitely on the love ’em team.

I’ve always been a huge lover of pickles. I love pickled anything, and can’t get enough of the briny and acidic flavor. And fried pickles? Now that’s just next-level. They’re the perfect finger food or bar snack. Crunchy, salty, savory, and tangy all in one bite.

Bubbies pickles are the best for fried pickles

There is one caveat to my pickle loving ways, though. I only like dill pickles.

And Bubbies are my favorite. Bubbies makes the absolute best naturally fermented dill pickles. They contain no sugar, vinegar, or preservatives and they have the perfect blend of spices.

I think you can really taste the difference with Bubbies’ pickles. I’m a huge fan of all of their products, actually, including Bubbies sauerkraut, horseradish, and spicy pickles.

And Bubbies kosher dill pickles make the very best fried pickles!

Fried pickles are fairly easy to make. The batter is everything you likely have in your pantry — flour, salt, spices — and a few fridge staples. 

The perfect dip to these pickles is a cool and creamy homemade ranch dip. This dip comes together in just minutes and is complemented by a kick of heat from Sriracha.

No matter who you put this plate of fried pickles in front of, it’s impossible to resist. Serve these pickles at your next game night, backyard shindig, or your version of weekday happy hour!

Pickle Ranch Dressing

We’re always looking for new ways to use our Bubbies Kosher Dills and this is one of our new favorites! Ranch dressing is already amazing, but this version is the perfect consistency between a salad dressing and a dip.

We used french fries, gluten free chicken strips, carrots and celery, but feel free to use anything your heart desires. Dipping our Kosher Dill Pickles is also suggested!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 heaping tbs of sour cream
  • Hidden Valley Ranch packet
  • 2 large Bubbies Kosher Dill Pickles (blended)
  • Splash of pickle juice

Cover and refrigerate until desired thickness.
