  • 32 dill pickle slices
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons dill pickle juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh dill


  1. Preheat oven to 500°. Let pickle slices stand on a paper towel until liquid is almost completely absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, combine flour and salt. In another shallow bowl, whisk eggs, pickle juice, cayenne and garlic powder. Combine panko and dill in a third shallow bowl.
  3. Dip pickles into flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess. Dip into egg mixture, then into crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere. Transfer to a greased wire rack in a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake until golden brown and crispy, 20-25 minutes.
