Hey there! I’m excited to share one of my favorite snack recipes with you. If you’re a fan of the tangy taste of pickles and the rich, gooey goodness of melted cheese, you’re in for a treat. This recipe for fried cheese-wrapped pickles is perfect for satisfying those savory, sour, and cheesy cravings.

Plus, it’s super easy to make. I used petite dill pickles, but feel free to experiment with your favorite type. Let’s get started!

  1. Prepare the Cheese: In a small skillet, sprinkle a handful of shredded mozzarella cheese, forming a circle about the size of your pickle. This will be the cheesy wrap for your pickle.
  2. Season the Cheese: Lightly sprinkle paprika and garlic powder over the cheese. This adds a burst of flavor to your snack.
  3. Melt and Crisp the Cheese: Heat the skillet over medium-high heat. Allow the cheese to melt and cook until one side becomes crispy and golden brown.
  4. Wrap: Place a pickle at the edge of the melted cheese. Using a spatula, carefully roll the cheese around the pickle, creating a delicious, cheesy wrap.
  5. Drain and Serve: Remove the cheese-wrapped pickle from the skillet and place it on a paper towel to drain any excess oil. Serve hot and enjoy!

I also have another Fried Pickles Recipe that includes crispy panko crumbs. It’s totally different from this recipe; it’s more like a piece of fried chicken, but it’s also so good!

Notes

I used petite dill pickles from my fridge, but next time, I might try sandwich slices for a better cheese-to-pickle ratio. 
The amount of cheese you use will up to the size of the pickle. This is a very forgiving recipe, so you can make a larger cheese circle for a larger pickle. Once you make it a few times, you will get the hand of how you love this snack.
