Oven Fried Pickles

09.07.2011 · Posted by Emily (The Culinary Couple)

Quick. Name two foods that pregnant women stereotypically crave.

Did you guess ice cream and pickles? Because apparently they’re the most popular answers. And I have both covered. More specifically chocolate peanut butter ice cream and oven fried pickles.

Of course, you don’t have to be sporting a baby bump to enjoy this simple snack.

Sour, crunchy pickles are dipped into a spicy batter, then coated in panko bread crumbs.

Place on a rack set above a baking sheet, and broil just 3 minutes per side.

Serve with Ranch dressing and a dash of hot sauce.

Guaranteed to satisfy your craving — whether you’re pregnant or not.

Oven Fried Pickles

(Printable Recipe)

Makes 6 servings.


  • 1 jar pickle slices (we like large, thick slices of Claussen dill pickles)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs

  1. Turn oven broiler on high.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and flour. Add Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Place panko bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dunk each pickle slice into the egg mixture, than dredge it in the panko bread crumbs.
  4. Place coated pickles on a rack set above a baking sheet and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Place pan in the middle rack of the oven. Broil for about 3 minutes on each side.
