How To Make Pimento Cheese Pickle Egg Rolls
The four ingredients that you need for this simple egg roll recipe will have you loving cooking this dish even more!
Step 1: Cut and pickles in half, spoon out the center of pickles. Add some pimento cheese in, put pickle back together.
Or you can even fill with cream cheese for a different type of filling.
Step 2: Wrap in egg roll wrappers, then deep fry. I used a cast-iron skillet with oil.
You want the oil to be 375 degrees. Fry until golden brown on the outside.
Step 3: Allow to cool down a bit then serve with ranch or any other dipping sauce.

Can you use other types of pickles for this recipe?
You are welcome to use any type of pickle you prefer. I have only made these with dill pickles so I can’t vouch for the flavor of other variety of pickles.
If you’re a canner and have your own homemade pickles on hand, try a few different varieties and see what you like best.
How do you keep your egg rolls rolled tight?
I actually have a lot of practice in this so that helps but there are a few tips to keep in mind.
Roll your egg rolls tight when you’re creating them and then use a bit of liquid (water) around the seams to hold the egg roll wrapper in place.
Once you start frying them, you shouldn’t have any issues at all because the hot grease should bind them together easily.
Deep fried pickles in egg roll wrappers are fun and different! A fried pickle popper that will be the talk of the night.
What are some great dipping options for these pickle egg rolls?
Dipping food items are so much fun! I love to dip these in ranch once they’re cooked but again, you can vary this dish up any way that you want.
These would taste great dipped in blue cheese dressing, honey mustard, or even a spicy dip option, too.
I like to make up a “dip bar” where I have varied dips set out and let everyone choose their own want. Just watch out for those double-dippers…they’re out there!
How do you store Pimento Pickles once cooked?
Since these are fried, they’re going to have the best taste and texture if they’re eaten right away. However, if you have leftovers, you can still enjoy them, too.
Just store them in an airtight container and place them in the fridge for later. You can easily heat them up in the microwave or low and slower in your toaster oven to enjoy again.
The low and slow method is going to be the easiest way to give them a bit of that crunch bag. The microwave option will get them hot but not crispy.
I can’t wait to hear what you think about this simple pickle recipe! It’s one of my favorites!
