I have been wanting to make these for months now. I finally found the time to do it. And this recipe was in this month’s issue of Cuisine At Home magazine. These were very easy to make and tasted great! I ate at least half for my dinner tonight dipped in ranch dressing. Yummy! Enjoy!
1 jar dill or sweet pickle slices (I used Famous Dave’s Spicy Pickle Chips)
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1 cup flour
2 cups panko bread crumbs
1 pkg dry ranch dressing mix
Heat 1 inch of oil in a large fry pan over medium heat to 360 degrees. Drain pickles, reserving 3/4 cup of pickle juice. Whisk pickle juice, dressing, egg and flour together until smooth. Combine panko and dry ranch mix in a shallow dish. Pat pickles dry with paper towels. Dip pickles into batter, letting excess drip off. Then coat in panko mix and drop into hot oil. Fry pickles in batches until golden, 2-3 minutes, then transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
