Buffalo Fried Pickles

Second Bar + Kitchen • Austin

These salty, spicy pickles are one of David Bull's favorite dishes at Second Bar + Kitchen, where they're served with a house-made Gorgonzola sauce. He likes pairing them with the bar's Fightin' Words cocktail, a corn-whiskey riff on a gin-based classic called the Last Word.

How to Get the Most from Your Egg Slicer


  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 2 kosher dill pickles (about 6 inches long), sliced lengthwise 1/4 inch thick
  • All-purpose flour, for dredging
  • 2 large eggs beaten with 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup fine dry bread crumbs mixed with 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Blue cheese salad dressing and hot sauce, for serving

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large saucepan, heat 1 1/2 inches of oil to 375°. Pat the pickle slices dry with paper towels. Put the flour, eggs and bread crumbs in 3 separate shallow bowls. Dredge the pickle slices in flour, shaking off the excess. Dip them in the egg, then coat with the bread crumbs.

  2. Fry the pickles, about 5 slices at a time, turning once, until browned and crisp, about 1 minute. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve hot, with blue cheese dressing and hot sauce.
