The Minnesota State Fair is just around the corner- which means an eating frenzy of delicious fried foods (fried pickle recipe anyone?!) and various delicacies on a stick will soon be here. In order to get your body good and prepped for such a mouth-filling event I teamed up with several of my favorite food bloggers to create a round up of our best foods that copycat the Minnesota State Fair foods.
Enjoy your favorites like certain chocolate chip cookies, or pronto pups, mini donuts- and of course my favorite- fried pickles! Which leads us into my recipe for said Fried Pickles.
Fried Pickle Recipe with Sriracha Ranch Dip
The biggest challenge with making fried pickles is to make sure to not over fry them. They aren’t really fried pickles anymore if they taste like oil and not dill pickle vinegary goodness!
The easiest way that I have found to do this is by freezing the pickles after coating them in the wet batter but before frying them. It’s a step I strongly recommend not skipping- trust me on this one.
After that the process is easy. Fry a few pickles, eat a few. Repeat. They are especially delicious when dipped in the Sriracha Ranch Dip which does an amazing job of cooling with a tiny hint of spicy heat at the same time.
Both the Sriracha Ranch Dip and Fried Pickle Recipe are detailed below. Enjoy them immediately!
