Fried pickles are a popular menu item in a lot of Southern casual eateries

This version from Lay’s Potato Chips beats any fried pickles I’ve had anywhere


Crushed potato chips are mixed with flour to create the coating for the pickles


Crush the chips in the food processor or in a bag with a rolling pin and mix with flour


Coat the pickle slices with coating on both sides, pressing it firmly onto the pickle chips with your fingers


Carefully place coated chips into hot oil, 375-400 degrees and fry 2-3 minutes until golden

The coating is light and flavorful, and the end result is a salty crispy treat

Serve with a bowl of Ranch dressing for dipping
