  • 2 cups dill pickle slices
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ranch dressing (optional, or other dipping sauce)


  1. Drain the pickles and lay them out onto a few clean paper towels to dry them out. Pat them with another clean paper towel so they are nice and dry.
  2. Add the flour to a medium size mixing bowl and season it with a little bit of salt and pepper, the garlic powder, onion powder and oregano and mix it up.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, crack the eggs and lightly whisk them. Combine the breadcrumbs and parmesan in a separate shallow bowl.
  4. Dip each pickle slice in the flour, then in the egg, then in the breadcrumb mixture and lay them onto a clean plate. Continue until you have breaded all of the pickles.
  5. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F and spray the basket with olive oil spray.
  6. Working in batches, lay some of the breaded pickles into the air fryer basket in an even layer and cook them for 8-10 minutes. Continue until you have cooked all of the pickles.
  7. Serve with homemade ranch dressing.
