If you are looking for a tasty appetizer, this Cheesy Fried Pickle recipe is for you. Done in just 10 minutes, this is a simple, fast, and delicious recipe. Get out your pickle spears and give it a try today or for your next party! 


  • 4 dill pickle spears
  • 4 ounces block havarti cheese, cut into 4 equal, length-wise slices
  • 4 egg roll wrappers
  • water


  1. Heat oil to 375° Fahrenheit,
  2. Using paper towels, dry each pickle
  3. Place egg roll wrapper on a cutting board so that it is diamond shape from your perspective
  4. Place pickle with broadest side up on in the middle of the egg roll wrapper
  5. Add cheese against pickle spear
  6. If cheese is hanging over the sides of the pickle, trim up.
  7. Lightly wet the edges of the egg roll
  8. Fold egg roll wrapper corner that is nearest you, over the pickle
  9. Fold left and right edges in
  10. Roll up egg roll so everything is covered and set aside
  11. Repeat until all pickles are wrapped
  12. Cook pickles in hot oil for about 1 ½ minutes. I cook 2 at a time, but this will depend on the size of your pot. Egg rolls should be golden brown
  13. Remove from oil onto a plate lined with paper towels. 
  14. Cut in half and serve with dip. I recommend this Chipotle Ranch Dip


  • If the oil start crackling too loud, it might mean the cheese is leaking out and they should be close to done, if not already done
  • Can substitute gouda or mozzarella cheese
  • Make sure to follow frying safety
  • Serve with this Chipotle Ranch Dip Recipe.
  • For Calories, I estimated 40 grams of corn oil based on measuring before and after oil weight and accounting for a little oil dissipating into the air.
