Fried Pickles #SundaySupper

Fried Pickles for a Man Food #SundaySupper

Today we’re celebrating the men in our lives with a Man Food #SundaySupper. Fried pickles would be great served while watching sports. I ate this batch while watching game 2 of the hockey finals.

Fried pickles seem to be a Southern thing. Dill pickle chips are breaded in seasoned flour and deep fried until golden and crispy and served along side Ranch dressing for dipping. I know some of you are thinking “That’s just crazy. There is no way that would be good.” I was that way until I tried them. I don’t even really like pickles but I love fried pickles.

This is normally something I order when I go eat at a local barbecue joint but I think these taste even better.

This is also my first anniversary as part of the #SundaySupper crew. My very first post was coconut cream pie for last year’s Father’s Day event. I’ve enjoyed getting to know this awesome group of bloggers and trying new recipes and techniques.

  8. […] I make this dressing more than I do any other. Mostly because I’m low on homemade Ranch mix and haven’t bought the ingredients to replenish my supply. It’s also surprisingly good as a French fry dip or even with fried pickles. […]
