Can You Reheat Fried Pickles?

Reheating your leftover ranch fried pickles in the oven is the best way to heat them up without making them soggy. Place leftovers on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 until they’re hot and crispy. Delish!

Can You Bake Fried Pickles?

You can bake pickles instead of frying them but dipping and breading the pickles as directed below, but baking at 450 until golden and crispy, about 15 minutes. But you’ve got to try frying them! They’re worth the extra few calories, I promise!
