  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste (I used 1 teaspoon total)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 cup seasoned panko
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 (24 oz) jar pickle spears drained and dried, should have 15 pickles
  • Ranch for dipping


  • Place flour, salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder onto a shallow plate. Whisk to combine, then set aside.
  • Place egg and milk onto another shallow plate. Whisk to break up the yolk, then set aside.
  • Place panko and parmesan onto a third shallow plate. Whisk to combine, then set aside.
  • One at a time, dredge the pickles in flour/seasoning mixture, then egg mixture, then panko mixture.
  • Set aside on a clean work surface and repeat with remaining pickles.
  • Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  • Grease basket with cooking spray, place in 4 pickles - be sure they’re not touching, then spray the tops with additional cooking spray.
  • Air fry for 10 minutes, then remove, and repeat with remaining pickles.
  • Serve with ranch (or sauce of choice) for dipping and enjoy!
