Baked Fried Pickles
Climbing the charts as one of the most popular new appetizer choices, you can now make a low cal version at home with this Baked Fried Pickles recipe.
Pickles have made a comeback. Long regarded as a second thought add on for sandwiches and burgers, they have become stars in their own right. There are companies who specialize in nothing but gourmet pickle flavors and pickle juice is the not-so-secret ingredient in everyone’s favorite ChickfilA sandwich recipe.
As of late, fried pickle chips have become a staple on many restaurant starter menus. They are tangy, crunchy, spicy and savory and typically served with a cooling dip to help balance the flavors. The downside is that fried pickles, by virtue of the cooking method, are loaded with calories. Enter A Spicy Perspective and their fantastic recipe for a baked version of these delightful treats. The trick is to add some low-fat cheese into the mix for flavor and then to spray with cooking spray to help them get crispy. The dip is even slimmed down with the use of Greek yogurt. These are great for get-togethers or even as nighttime snack. Enjoy!
