Have you ever eaten fried pickles? In this day it seems they are deep fat frying anything and everything you can think of, even snickers bars are being thrown into the fryer. Anyhow, I have a recipe for fried pickle "coins" and I am tempted to try them - they sound like they might actually be good. Have any of you tried fried pickles? did you make them yourself? did you like them? If you have not tried them, do they sound like something you would like to give a go at? What other strange things have you heard of or even tried that are being deep fat fried these days?

Oh yes modestah, They are soo soo good. I tried them at the fair one year. These were fried pickle spears on a stick... Oh my gosh what a taste sensation. if you like pickles you will love them deep fried. I also once had a sinfully deep fried ham and swiss sandwich. It was held together with tooth picks then dipped in a think batter and deep fried. Served with a spicy mustard to dip it in... Gosh that was out of this world. I think it was called a Monte Crisco.

I know, I always wondered about that with ice cream.... I have ordered it once and did not care for it. fried dill pickle coins (Cheryl M. taste of home magazine) 2 cups a.p. flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon of pepper 2 eggs 1 cup milk 3 cups thin dill pickle slices drained oil for deep fat frying ranch dressing as a dip if desired in a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper. In another bowl, beat eggs and milk. blot pickles with paper towels to remove moisture. coat pickles with flour mixture, then dip in egg mixture coat again with flour mixture. in an electric skillet or deep fat fryer heat oil to 375* Fry pickles, about 10 at a time, for 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels, serve warm with ranch dressing.

No I've never tried and never will. I had a heart attack and I'm overweight which means I never eat deep fried food. I was told a few years ago by a lady her most favorite thing is deep fried bananas. Again Yes I'd love to try these things but I refuse to even try just in case I like it.

When I worked in Alabama, this was a staple on the local restaurants. I was a little hesitant at first, but finally got the nerve to try them...and they were absolutetly delicious. I have never tried to make them myself, but it shouldn't be that hard!

I know this is a big rage at the state fairs! I have not tried anything. Call me chicken. I know you can get deep fried oreos and deep fried cheesecake. Oh I take it back I have had deep fried green beans and they were really good. It reminded me of tempura.

I tried fried pickles a few years ago at the urging of a friend. They actually weren't bad though I'm not a huge fan of deep fried foods. They seem to be deep frying everything these days...candy, oreos, Twinkies, burgers, hot dogs...

I've never had fried pickles. We never have a lot of pickles in this house so it wouldn't happen. I'm sure many people here would be wondering why I was frying pickles. I've heard about deep fried Oreo's and I'm wondering how those really taste. I can't remember who, but someone that I know has had them before and they seemed to like them so I think it'd be worth trying. I'm just not sure how the pickles would taste.

The first and only time I ever had fried pickles was in Utah back in 1975. It was until relatively recently the only way I would eat a pickle. Love them!! But, I found that pickles in German roast meat recipes are pretty darned good, too. In fact, I'll be making one Rouladen recipe tomorrow for my mother and me. But, fried pickles...way good! And, very Southern, from what I can see. Yum.

I often see cuts off beef labeled for Rouladen at the commissary but I have never had it, nor do I know what the recipe is like.

The recipe I'm going to use can be seen at http://www.grouprecipes.com/49812/german-beef-rouladen.html. I like easy recipes and this one looked pretty good. I bought beef for braciole instead of trying to slice a flank steak down and flattening it. The braciole is already cut. But, if you have Rouladen cuts in your commissary, then you're set to go. We shall see how it turns out.

I love fried pickles! We have a 50's Diner not too far from me and they make fried pickles. I haven't had them in ages because I don't go over there, and they aren't that healthy. They are what you would term 'coin' shape. I've heard of deep fried donuts, twinkies, and oreos. Never tried any of them though.

I have never heard of fried twinkies or oreos. Those don't sound good to me either. But as I said in my response down further I don't eat fried foods hardly at all.

Now that was the first time that i have ever heard of fried pickles!! I didn't know that they even done that to pickles; when you try it out let me know how the pickles taste. One question though; are the sour or sweet pickles that are being fried? Sweet pickles maybe but sour ones i can't see.

oh, good question. I am not certain but I am thinking the recipes call for Dill Pickles.

Fried Pickles really dont sound like anything that I would eat. This is the first time I even knew pickles were fried. Other things that are fried are icecream, candy bars, and even green beans. I have tried the green beans and they are really good.

I have never tried fried pickles but they might be good. I do love pickles. I have heard of snickers and mozzarella being fried but never tried either one of those. i bet the mozzarella is good though. do not know about the snickers though.

I've never tried fried pickles...I don't really like normal pickles. xD But yeah, there are interesting things getting deep fried these days. The other day I saw a special on different fried treats on Food network. One restaraunt deep fried sliced of bacon and served them with gravy.

well..i'd never heard of doing that..but i imagine it's probably similar to fried okra,maybe a bit tangier.i suppose i'd try them at least once. um..the weirdest thing beside the snickers i'd heard is probably the fried twinkies.i don't see the point..

I have had fried pickles at carnivals and county fairs. I think that they are awesome. I have never fried them myself. I just bought them. The sour taste and the batter works together to make a wonderful treat.
