*Thanks for the tips from Cameron Fontana!


  • Heat oil in a small pan over low to medium heat. Oil temperature should reach approximately 350 degrees.
  • While oil is warming, prepare other ingredients.
  • Add ½ cup flour to a bowl; set aside.
  • Mix Panko, dried dill and garlic powder in a second bowl; set aside.
  • Beat eggs in a third bowl; set aside.
  • Place dill pickle slices in a single layer on a plate lined with a paper towel. Press another paper towel on top of the pickles, pressing firmly to dry pickles thoroughly. Repeat if necessary.
  • Dredge each pickle in flour, then egg, then Panko mixture.
  • Using tongs, gently place each coated pickle slice to the hot oil. Fry each one until golden brown, approximately 2-3 minutes on each side.
  • Carefully remove from hot oil, placing on a rack or a plate lined with a paper towel.
  • Enjoy!
