When it comes to epic burgers, this one is right up there.

If you love fried pickles, if you love fry sauce and burger spread you are going to absolutely love this Fried Pickle Burger. I’ve made it twice in as many weeks because it’s such a hit. The combination of the juicy burger, the homemade burger spread and the crispy fried pickles is burger perfection.

How to make Fried Pickles:

I’ve been a fan of fried pickles for a while now. In fact, I shared a recipe a few years ago for fried pickles. They are a guilty pleasure of mine. It sounds weird right? But they are SO good!

This Deep Fried Pickles Recipe is the perfect recipe for pickle fanatics. The pickles are coated in panko bread crumbs and fried until golden. 

Fried pickles are where it’s at. They are tangy, salty, crispy and crunchy and they make an excellent burger topping.

And making them is so easy!

Step 1: Make a wet batter with flour, egg, milk, hot sauce and Worcestershire.

Step 2: Make a dredge with flour, panko and seasonings.

Step 3: Dip then dredge the pickle slices.

Step 4: Fry.

See! So easy! And SO good!

When it comes to epic burgers this Fried Pickle Burger loaded with spicy fried pickles and homemade burger spread is at the top of the list.

How to make Burger Sauce (Burger Spread):

As good as the pickles are, this burger would not be nearly as epic if it wasn’t for the burger spread.

The BEST ever Burger Sauce!

I use my homemade copycat Burgerville burger sauce in this recipe. The five ingredients make it easy to make and the fact that it has dill pickle relish and sweet pickle relish made it a natural topping for this Fried Pickle Burger.

And it’s an excellent fry dip too. Just sayin…
