What Is In Fried Dill Pickle Dip?

  • Toasted Bread Crumbs: This mimics the fried coating on a fried dill pickle. We are making our own using plain bread crumbs, a little butter, and a hot skillet.
  • Whipped Cream Cheese and Sour Cream: The base to any creamy and light dip. I like to buy whipped cream cheese because it means less whipping when you are making the dip.
  • Dill pickles and juice: Choose your favorite dill pickles, the crunchier the better!
  • Ranch seasoning: It is iconic to dip fried dill pickles in ranch, so it seemed natural to add this in to the dip! This recipe uses 2 tablespoons which is one, 2 ounce, packet of Ranch seasoning mix.
  • A few more seasonings: Garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Ingredients: Cream cheese, sour cream, pickles, ranch seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic powder, bread crumbs,

How to Make Fried Dill Pickle Dip

Toast. In a small skillet, melt the butter, add the bread crumbs, stir continually until toasted. Remove from pan and set aside.

Mix. In a medium sized bowl combined the cream cheese, sour cream, dill pickle juice, Ranch seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and dill pickles.

Spread and Top. Evenly spread the dip into a serving dish (this is completely optional, you can also keep it in the bowl you mixed the dip in). Sprinkle toasted bread crumbs and more chopped pickles over the top.

Devour! This dip is best served with crackers, pretzels, veggies, or pita chips. The possibilities are endless. I personally like this dip with Ritz crackers and celery.

Making Ahead of Time

This Fried Dill Pickle Dip is perfect to make ahead of time, which makes it even more perfect to serve at parties, take to church picnics, BBQs, etc. The best way to do this is, the night before…

  • Toast the bread crumbs and store them in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • Mix up the dill pickle dip and spread it into your serving dish. Store covered in the refrigerator.

Before you are ready to take and serve, sprinkle the toasted bread crumbs and extra chopped pickles over top.

2 Big Tips for the BEST Fried Dill Pickle Dip

  1. Use high quality ingredients. Because there are minimal ingredients in this dip it makes all the difference, especially the pickles.
  2. The cream cheese and sour cream need to be at room temperature. This is a MUST for your dip to be well combined and creamy.
