Fried pickles anyone?! There is just something about a fried pickle that sends our cravings to a whole new level! Check out the yummy recipe and helpful video below as shared by DisneyParksBlog for a taste of Disneyland right at home. Happy cooking, Disney fans!

Some people are just plain passionate about their fried pickle preferences. Dill or bread & butter? Spears or chips? And let’s not get started on the preferred breading and dipping sauces – let’s just say everyone has an opinion!

We decided to wade into the fried pickle debate with our classic fried pickle recipe from Carnation Café. Located right on Main Street, U.S.A at Disneyland park, Carnation Café has been serving up their signature deep-fried bites of tart, salty, crunchy pickles since 2012. Check out our fried pickle recipe below – we also included our delicious house-made zesty dipping sauce. This just may be your new favorite!

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
