HOW TO MAKE ELVIS FAMOUS FRIED PICKLES

ELVIS FAMOUS FRIED PICKLES

My kids and my husband just love pickles, especially fried pickles.  We typically do not order an appetizer when we eat out unless fried pickles are on the menu.  Somehow, my family always seems to talk me into ordering them.  I am generally reluctant to order fried pickles, mainly because I do not like pickles.   I did not eat pickles growing up and never developed a taste for them.  After making Elvis’ Fried Pickles, I ate them.  Now, I love fried pickles.

My First Concert Ever ELVIS

Living so close to Memphis, we just had to check out Graceland.  I was a little girl when Elvis died, but I remember it.  I can even remember going to an Elvis concert in Mobile, Alabama just months before he died.  It is one of my exciting childhood memories.  I am not a huge Elvis fan, but I enjoyed Graceland.

Elvis’ Kitchen To Yours – Cookbook

While visiting Graceland, I purchased a cookbook called From Elvis’ Kitchen to Yours I am addicted to cookbooks, and this cookbook had beautiful pictures of Elvis’ favorite foods and pictures of Elvis throughout his life.  The cookbook has Elvis’ favorites foods, including Elvis’ Fried Pickles.  So, I decided to give them a try.  We were not disappointed.  Elvis Pickles were truly delicious even I liked them.  I have since made Elvis Fried Pickles several times, and they are always eaten before they even hit the table.

What kind of pickles do you use?

Elvis recipe called for 1 quart of sliced pickles.  I like sliced pickles the best, but if you love pickles, you will enjoy the pickle spears better.  My kids and husband loved them.

Elvis’ Fried Pickles-Recipe


  • Author: RECIPES FOR OUR DAILY BREAD
  • Category: APPETIZER
  • Cuisine: AMERICAN

Ingredients

  • One egg, beaten
  • 3-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup buttermilk – Elvis’ recipe called for 1 cup milk, but I always soak everything I fry in buttermilk.
  • One tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 drops hot pepper sauce
  • One teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 quart sliced pill pickles (I have also used pickle spears.)
  • Enough vegetable oil to fry the pickles in.

Instructions

  1. Drain the pickles and place into the buttermilk, egg, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce mixture. (I let mine set for about an hour. The original recipe did not.)
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper and mix.
  3. Add a few at a time into the flour mixture.
  4. Deep fry in hot oil heated to 350 degrees.
  5. Pickles will rise to the surface when done.
  6. Drain on paper towels and season with salt and pepper or Cajun seasoning while they are draining. Serve hot.

    • Lucy,

      Believe it or not I did not like pickles either until I tried fried pickles. I did not grow up eating them BUT I love these fried pickles. My kids have always loved pickles and order fried pickles all the time. I have been making these pickles now for several years. They really are delicious. You will have to try one.
      I think Saturday Dishes turned out well. I enjoyed pinning everything and visiting everyone’s blog.

      Blessings,

  1. I have made the move from wordpress.com to wordpress.org and I’m sorry to say that my followers did not make the move with me. (something they don’t tell you!) I would like to ask you to come back and re-follow me via email if that’s ok. Sorry for the inconvenience! It’s still http://www.houseontheway.com.
