You may have been wondering what was sitting on the side of those Pineapple Chorizo Burgers. Well, my friend, they were Not-Fried Pickles!
Happy Hubby and I always have to get Fried Pickles when we see them on a menu. They are always super tasty. I don't like the idea of deep-frying anything at home because if I enjoy doing it, who knows what I may end up frying and how often? Deep-frying is like a gateway drug. How else do you think people started deep-frying Oreos and Twinkies?
No, I will try to confine my deep-fried foods to restaurants. There, I pay more, which leads to eating less fried foods. Good plan Sarah! I will enjoy my fried Oreos out of the comfort of my own home in front of people where I can feel indulgent and say stuff like "I ran this week" and pretend that it cancels it out.
BTW: a 2 mile run burns about the equivalent of a single serving of Oreos, pre-fried (which is 2 cookies)
Further BTW: WHO THE HECK ONLY EATS 2 OREOS?!?!?!?!
...it's a conspiracy...
from The Vanilla Tulip
1 jar pickle slices (I used the big burger sized slices)
1/3 cup flour
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp hot sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
1. Turn oven broiler on high.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and flour. Add Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, and pepper. Mix well.
3. Place panko bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dunk each pickle slice into the egg mixture, than dredge it in the panko bread crumbs.
4. Place coated pickles on a rack set above a baking sheet and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Place pan in the middle rack of the oven. Broil for about 3 minutes on each side.
