Fried Panko-Dipped Pickle Spears

pickle spears

Have you had fried pickles yet? It’s a kind of a newer southern treat. I have had beer battered pickle chips before, but had never made my own until just recently. For these I wanted to make them extra crunchy so I used Vlasic pickle spears and panko bread crumbs. There are amazingly good and so addictive.
