Low Carb, Keto Fried Pickles with Chili Ranch Dipping Sauce
These low carb, keto fried pickles are a healthier, gluten free, grain free alternative to traditional fried appetizers. Dip them in my two-ingredient chili ranch dipping sauce for an indulgent low carb treat.
Optional: ranch dressing and sweet chili sauce for serving
Drain the dill pickle slices and dry very well with paper towels.
Whisk the egg until mixed well.
Heat cooking oil in a deep fryer to 375°F. Follow your deep fryer manual for the minumum amount of oil required and usage instructions.
While the oil is warming up, whisk remaining ingredients in a separate bowl.
You will need to fry in batches. Depending on the size of your deep fryer, dip 5-10 pickles in the egg and shake until dripping stops. Coat with the breading mixture and drop into the oil, careful not to splatter or touch the other pickles.
Fry for approximately 45 seconds, turning halfway through until each side is golden brown. Drain on a paper towel. Continue frying the pickles in batches until finished.
Service with 1/2 tsp. sweet chili sauce (or more to taste) per 2 Tbsp. ranch dressing. (Sauce not included in nutrition facts. For clean keto, make your own from scratch.)
A Note on Nutrition FactsPlease note: The nutrition facts do not include the frying oil. To calculate the macros for the oil you use, please record how much you start with and subtract how much you end with (after it cools). This will give you the amount left in your food that you need to plug into My Fitness Pal or Carb Manager, and then you can divide by the number of servings. The amount of oil soaked up by your fried pickles may vary significantly from mine depending on what kind you use, the exact temperature of the oil and how long you cook yours.I am not a nutritional expert or medical professional.
