Fried Pickles

Let's talk about something random for a minute.. fried pickles. I had no idea these delicious chips existed until I moved to Memphis. In fact, I even remember the first time I heard about them! Jeremy mentioned them and I actually thought he was making them up.

I had my first taste of this goodness at a Huey's and since then my life has never been the same. Ok, maybe that's a little dramatic, but seriously, they are soo soo soo good. I instantly fell in love. We've actually made our own fried pickles, which reminds me, we have to do that again soon.

I've learned about a lot of new things when I abruptly moved to the South. Fried pickles are definitely one of the true joys that I am happy to now have the pleasure of knowing.

So, now I want to hear from you!
Do you prefer chips or spears?
Where are your favorite fried pickles from?


  1. I'm big fan of pickle chips. Up here in NY and Nj we don't see a lot of fried pickles except for county fairs but I have had them at Cheeseburger in Paradise and they were pretty awesome.

  2. Kensei introduced me to fried pickles when I first visited him in Memphis, I LOVE them! I only get them at restaurants when I am actually in Memphis because in SC they aren't as good. I usually make my own either frying them when I make onion rings or I just found a recipe on pintrest for baking them that I'm going to try next time!

  3. Well you know I had to comment on this post (wink). I make them in beer batter. Yum Tum! and my fav's are from a local place called Old Neighborhood Bar & Grill. I prefer chips, with girls friends setting around a table, gossip and a cool refreshing beverage.

  4. Brandon loves fried pickles and he kinda turned me onto them as well. But too many give me a belly ache.

  5. I was salivating while reading about fried pickles.....have to try them one day!

  6. I LOVE fried pickles. I love reading your blog. Ever since I moved to Dallas it's nice to read up on my old southern habits!

  7. AJAX Diner in Oxford, MS....so yummy!!


I appreciate each and every comment!! I love hearing from my readers :)
