Fried Pickles - Carnation Café - Disneyland
Some people are just plain passionate about their fried pickle preferences. Dill or bread & butter? Spears or chips? And let’s not get started on the preferred breading and dipping sauces – let’s just say everyone has an opinion!
We decided to wade into the fried pickle debate with the classic fried pickle recipe from Carnation Café. Located right on Main Street, U.S.A at Disneyland park, Carnation Café has been serving up their signature deep-fried bites of tart, salty, crunchy pickles since 2012. Check out our fried pickle recipe below – we also included the delicious house-made zesty dipping sauce. This just may be your new favorite!
For Zesty House Sauce:
Combine all ingredients in small mixing bowl, whisking well.
Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.
Using caution, pour oil into large skillet and heat to 365°F.
Place flour in shallow dish.
Whisk eggs until smooth in small mixing bowl. Transfer to another shallow dish.
Mix panko and Parmesan cheese together in another shallow dish.
Lightly dredge each pickle spear in flour.
Add pickle to whisked eggs, tossing gently to coat.
Add pickle to bread crumb mixture to coat.
Place breaded pickle on tray and repeat steps until all pickles are breaded.
Carefully place breaded pickles in skillet and fry until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with zesty house sauce.
