Oven Fried Pickles

I love fried pickles.  My daughter, Krista is nuts for pickles.  Fried pickles are twice as nice.  I like the slices not the spears.  Its like being a dog or a cat person.  You are either one or the other.  My favorites are from a German restaurant in Fredericksburg, TX.  If you haven’t been to Fredericksburg you are missing out on a great spot.  They have a couple of great German restaurants there.  In any event, I had a craving for fried pickles that would not be squashed.  So, I started to think of ways to make them less bad than lovely deep fried.  Here is what I came up with.

  • 1 jar pickle slices (I like sweet spicy like Wickles or Famous Dave’s thick cut)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne Powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs

Turn oven on 450.

Drain pickles and lay them out on paper towels to dry out a bit.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and flour. Add Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, garlic salt, cayenne powder, and pepper. Mix well.

Place panko bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dunk each pickle slice into the egg mixture, than dredge it in the panko bread crumbs.

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.  Bake for about 5 minutes on each side.  If you need them a bit crispier you can broil them for a minute.

Serve with Ranch dressing.

    Slices or spears, I don’t care, I love fried pickles! But I don’t like frying food! Happy to be able to make my favorite appetizer in the oven!
