These fried, ranch-flavored, panko-coated pickles are delicious with dip and perfect for appetizers. For the crispiest pickles, use whole pickles, hand-cut into spears.

Ingredients

4
to 6 cups vegetable oil
1
cup all-purpose flour
2
teaspoons dry ranch dressing mix (from 1-oz package)
4
eggs
2
cups Progresso™ panko crispy bread crumbs
12
crisp pickle spears

Directions

  • 2 Meanwhile, in shallow bowl, stir together flour and dressing mix. In another shallow bowl, beat eggs with whisk. In third shallow bowl, place bread crumbs.
  • 3 Dip each pickle spear into flour mixture, then into egg. Dip into flour a second time, then into egg a second time. Coat pickle spear with bread crumbs.

Expert Tips

For the crispiest pickle spears, buy whole pickles from the refrigerated section of your supermarket, and cut them into spears for the recipe.

For a thinner breading, you can replace 2 of the eggs with 1 cup milk, and only dip in the flour and egg once, instead of twice.
