8 servings


  • 8 ounces sliced dill pickles (about 1 1/3 cups)

  • 1 cup whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • Cooking spray

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

  • 1 teaspoon dried minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Set a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.

  2. Pat pickle slices dry. Place panko, flour and eggs in three separate shallow dishes. Working in batches, dredge the pickles in the flour, coat with the egg and then the panko, patting the crumbs to adhere. Place on the prepared rack. Coat liberally with cooking spray. Bake until crisp and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine sour cream, dill, dried garlic, lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a small bowl.

  4. To serve, transfer the pickles to a platter and sprinkle with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Serve with the sauce.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
