Be sure to choose an almond flour or almond meal that’s super finely ground for the perfect crunchy coating. If you don’t have the taco seasoning you can substitute 1 teaspoon each of garlic powder and onion powder, 1/2 a teaspoon of salt and cayenne pepper for a little kick!

I love that there is no hot oil in this recipe. No splatters to burn you makes me a very happy cook and I get to save all the calories of the vegetable oil.

How to Make Fried Pickles

  1. Start by turning your oven’s broiler to high.
  2. Beat together your eggs, cream, and water in a bowl. You’ll dip the pickles in this concoction before breading them.
  3. Combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, and taco seasoning in another bowl. This mixture creates the most delicious low carb crust!
  4. Lay your sliced pickles out on a paper towel to drain off some of the excess moisture. Then roll them in the almond flour mixture and shake off the excess.
  5. After they’re coated in the breading, dunk them in the egg mixture. Then they go back into the almond flour breading for a final coating.
  6. Lay the coated pickles out on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray.
  7. Broil the pickles in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes per side until they’re golden brown. Serve these pickles chips warm or at room temperature with your favorite ranch dressing, hot sauce, or keto dipping sauce.

Sometimes I stir a little hot sauce into the ranch and oh my gosh, it is SO good with these pickles!!

If you want a bigger pickle taste, substitute spears instead! You’ll want to broil them for 5 to 7 minutes instead. I love using homemade Refrigerator Pickles for fried pickle spears.
