Crispy beer battered baked pickle fries that are perfect for dipping in a cool and creamy ranch sauce.
Pickle fries are normally deep fried in oil, but I decided to bake them instead with a coating of panko bread crumbs to keep them crispy, though I could not pass up on the beer batter to hold the bread crumbs on. Despite pickles being a bit wet to begin with, these baked fries turn out nice and crispy and oh so irresistibly good! Beer battered crispy baked pickle fries are sure to be a star at your party for the big game and they are so easy to make!
48 slices of pickles, drained and pat dry with paper towels
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup beer, buttermilk or milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon creole seasoning (optional) - link this
1 cup panko bread crumbs
Dip the pickle slices in the mixture of the flour, beer, egg and creole seasoning, dredge in the bread crumbs and place on a rack on a baking dish.
Bake in a preheated 425F oven until golden brown and crispy, about 12-14 minutes.
