Baked “Fried” Pickles

 

Now you can eat fried pickles without any guilt!  
 
Healthy appetizer
 
 
 

How many fried pickle lovers do I have out there? YUM! If I ever see Fried Pickles on a menu… I HAVE to have them, no questions asked.

 

I know some of you have never enjoyed this strange , yet delicious appetizer, and are probably thinking FRIED PICKLES?!? Trust me.

 

If you like pickles, chances are you are going to love these.

 

On the down side, fried pickles are not the healthiest thing. In fact, my pilates instructor Angie, was appalled when she heard I had been dipping fried ANYTHING in ranch dressing :)

 

So I went on the hunt for a healthier version of my favorite bar food. What would you know, I found it on Pinterest. The Farmer’s Nest had a recipe for a baked version of this yummy treat. I made a couple changes based on what I had in the house. I’m not gonna lie, they don’t taste as good as their fried twin, but were pretty close! SWEET!

 

These will be a regular treat at our house, seeing as the girls ate more than me! They sat down to try some, and when I returned, they were ALL GONE! Hope you enjoy!

 Here is what you need: Makes about one baking sheet full :)
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
- 3-4 Tablespoons of flour
- 1 teaspoons of seasoning salt (I used Lawry’s)
- 1/2 teaspoon of dill
- 1 1/2 cups of Panko Japanese bread crumbs
- 2-3 Dill pickles, thinly sliced

 

 

 

1. In a shallow bowl add 1 egg. Beat with a folk. 2. Add the flour and mix until it’s a paste like consistency. 3. Next Add the Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Mix well.

 

 

4. Add your thinly sliced pickles into the mixture. Toss to coat pickles evenly. 5. Pour the Panko bread crumbs in a shallow bowl.Add pickles in one at a time, trying to coat each one evenly.

 

 

 

6. Spread them on a wire rack that is over a cookie sheet. Cook them in the oven on broil (500 degrees) for 4-6 minutes (or when they start to get golden).

Take them out and flip them onto the other side and return them to the oven for another 3-4 minutes.

Keep your eye on them to make sure they don’t burn. Serve warm.
Dip in ranch, or your favorite creamy dip!

 

Oh! Fried pickles! Don’t mind if I do :)

Going, Going

Gone!

  2. OH-EM-GEE! Pickles are one of my fave things. I adore fried pickles… but I have never tried them baked. *HEAVEN* Corey, you made my day. Plus your pictures are fabulous :)

  3. oh I love it! I just did beer battered pickles last week… and felt gross after I pounded god knows how many! I will have to try this leaner version!!

    I tried these last night. Very good, a big hit here

  8. HI! Thanks for the recipe! I thought that the kids would LOVE this since they love pickles and I don’t have a picky eater in the bunch. I was almost right…. I didn’t have any panko and didn’t realize until I had already mixed together the “wet” ingredients that I didn’t have ANY bread crumbs! So, I pulled out the frosted flakes and the food chopper and gave them a good crumble. Then I mixed them about half and half with potato flakes (mashed potatoes)… something my hubby does when making chicken nuggets for the kids. Other than that, I didn’t change a thing. I thought they were great and so did my youngest! I’ve had they only once before and that was at Hamburger in Paradise and I thought they were kinda gross! But these were soooo very good! Forget the naysayers (7 and 4)… they don’t know nuff’n! :) Thanks again!

  9. ohhh… I forgot to say that the “bread crumb” mixture I used turned out great! I think, next time, I will let them broil just a little longer to the edges are a bit crunchier!
