There is no question that fast food pickles like those at Chick Fil A and McDonalds are addictive. They are to me anyway! I had to recreate these yummy pickles that are super sour, thin, with no other flavor other than PICKLE!

My husband has become a pickle addict and when I made these yummy fast food pickles he was hooked! He literally eats them out of the jar.

I wrote this recipe keeping in mind that some of us (like me) only want to make one batch of pickles and we are not interested in make 10 gallons of pickles to store for the winter. We just want a small batch of homemade fast food pickles!


The key to fast food pickles is only using vinegar, dill, salt, and water as your pickling liquid. This gives nice and sour dill pickles. I start out with baby cucumbers that I picked up at Kroger.

The key to making these pickles as close to fast food pickles as possible, is to cook the brine and pour the hot brine over the pickles. So I poured the brine out of the jar into a saucepan and brought it to a boil.

Then I poured it back over the pickles, added the dried dill, and gave them a quick stir in the jar. You can see that the pickles start to loose their bright green color from the cooking process.

If you are as addicted to pickles as my husband, you may way to make a double batch!

Serve these at your next BBQ with some Instant Pot Pulled Pork and use my 90 Second Bread as the buns!
