Directions
  1. Drain your pickles and use a paper towel to pat off any excess moisture. Wrap each pickle in a slice of cheese and then wrap each in an egg roll skin. Seal it well, using a bit of water on the edges.
  2. Pour 2 inches of oil into a large pot. Clip on a deep-fry thermometer and heat the oil over medium-high heat to 360ºF.
  3. Working in batches, fry the pickles until golden brown and crispy on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel and let cool slightly. Slice in half crosswise and serve with Sriracha ranch.

stop what you are doing and MAKE THESE . . . I have air fried and baked them with great results . . . and I have delegated assembling / rolling and when you slice then all wonky-ness is gone (I am happy for however they get rolled) and they look great and go fast . . . glad the recipe was printed here as more people need to try them

I made these for a party last night and they were absolutely delicious! Easy to make (especially if you have a deep fryer) and gone in a flash. Thanks for the great idea!
