Ingredients For This Dip

This fried pickle dip is simple to prepare and tastes better with fresh ingredients and homemade pickles. Here’s the lowdown:

  • Cream cheese – Make sure it’s at room temperature when you’re ready to mix.
  • Mayonnaise – Use a homemade version or your favorite brand. We love Duke’s Mayo.
  • Dill Pickles – The crispier, the better. Try out the homemade recipe for Sweet and Spicy Pickles.
  • Pickled Jalapenos – Use freshly pickled if possible, they will have the best texture. We also have a great recipe for Smoked Pickled Jalapenos.
  • Pickle Brine – Choose the brine from either the pickles or the jalapenos.
  • White Cheddar – Typically fried pickle dip has bread crumbs stirred into the dip, but this recipe swaps that out for this sharp, aged flavor instead. The flavors of white cheddar pair very well with fresh dill.
  • Fresh Herbs – Dill and chives or scallions balance this dish, tying the rich creamy flavors with the variety of pickles.
  • Dried Spices – Garlic powder, onion powder, and seasoning for the toasted Panko are recommended.
The star ingredients for this recipe are the homemade pickles and pickled jalapenos.

How to Make This Creamy Pickle Dip

Toasting the panko bread crumbs is the first step, which can be prepared in advance.

Warm up a large pan on medium heat with a tablespoon of butter. Once melted, add in the panko breadcrumbs and stir frequently to toast them. Brown them for about 3-5 minutes and remove from the heat. Pour the breadcrumbs into a bowl and season lightly with some Sedona Sand All-Purpose Rub.

Set the breadcrumbs aside until you’re ready to garnish the fried pickle dip.

Toast the panko bread crumbs over a medium heat with a little unsalted butter.
Add the panko breadcrumbs to a pan over medium heat once the butter melts.
Toast the panko bread crumbs with a little butter until golden brown.
Toast the breadcrumbs for 3-5 minutes until browned, and remove from heat.

Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature, this is very important for creating a smooth dip. Whisk the cream cheese, mayo, and pickle brine first, whipping them together.

Next, chop up the pickles and jalapenos and fold them into the creamy dip along with the rest of the ingredients, except for the breadcrumbs.

Pour the dip into a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Place it in the fridge to rest for at least 30 minutes.

This step thickens the dip slightly and causes the flavors to meld together. Each bite of the fried pickle dip will be more flavorful and cohesive if you do this.

When you’re ready to serve, take the dip out of the fridge and top it generously with the panko bread crumbs.

I highly recommend serving the dip in a wider bowl, allowing maximum surface area for the spiced breadcrumbs.

Use a wide bowl for serving the dip, allowing for more breadcrumbs.

What to Serve with Fried Pickle Dip

Crispy potato chips are probably the best choice, but don’t let your imagination stop you. Crunchy veggie sticks will work if you’re trying to keep it on the healthy side.

Try it with toasted pita bread, pretzel bites, or even spread onto sliders for a mouthwatering twist. This would be incredibly delicious with some pulled chicken using the Nashville Hot Seasoning!

Set out the bowl of fried pickle dip and watch it disappear.
