Fried Cheesy Pickle Rolls

Author: Petro


  • small dill pickles
  • mozzarella cheese
  • crescent dough or pizza dough
  • egg
  • pinch of dry thyme
  • bread crumbs
  • sesame seeds
  • vegetable oil for frying

You will also need:

  • small bowl
  • shallow plate or bowl
  • frying pan
  • large spatula with holes
  • kitchen towels


  • Cut mozzarella into strips to match your dills
  • Roll out crescent dough until very thin then cut into strips, slightly wider than the dills and mozzarella strips.
  • Place 1 dill on top of 1 mozzarella strip and roll into dough about 2 times. Cut the dough, press the edges and trim dough.
  • Repeat for all mozzarella strips and dills.
  • In a small bowl, beat one egg with a pinch of dry thyme (you may need more but start with one first and add more as needed).
  • Fill a shallow plate or bowl with bread crumbs.
  • Dip each roll into egg then dredge through bread crumbs. Repeat.
  • Place rolls on a large plate then brush with remaining egg and sprinkle sesame seeds.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan and fry rolls on both sides, about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Place on kitchen towels to remove excess oil.
  • Best served warm.
