There are a lot of interesting food combinations out there these days. There are food pairings that I would never think of like peanut butter and bacon, deep fried oreos, and deep fried pickles. I remember the first time I ever heard of a deep fried pickle. I thought that it was so strange and then I tasted one… Wow! I was hooked. If ever I was out and saw them on a menu, I had to order them. The problem is now that I am off of fried foods, I miss them. So, if you can’t fry them, bake them.
This is a quick and easy snack that is fun to eat and tasty.
15 mini dill pickles
1/2 cup of egg whites
1/2 cup of flour (I use wheat flour but regular all purpose flour will do)
1/2 cup of bread crumbs
Preheat your oven at 400 degrees. Slice the pickle in half lengthwise. Pat dry with a paper towel. Coat in flour & then dip in the egg white. Roll in the bread crumbs and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve with low fat Ranch dressing.
My husband said that he likes these even better than the fried version. They were gobbled up quickly.
