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.
- 1 (16 ounce) jar dill hamburger chips, drained

- Pour half an inch of oil in to a heavy bottomed pot or deep skillet and heat to 350 degrees over medium heat.. I use cast iron to fry in.

- Pour the buttermilk in a shallow dish
- Lightly coat the pickles in the flour, dip in the buttermilk, and coat again in flour.
