    Dip each pickle spear into flour mixture, then into egg. Dip into flour a second time, then into egg a second time. Coat pickle spear with bread crumbs.

Expert Tips

For the crispiest pickle spears, buy whole pickles from the refrigerated section of your supermarket, and cut them into spears for the recipe.

For a thinner breading, you can replace 2 of the eggs with 1 cup milk, and only dip in the flour and egg once, instead of twice.
