Oven Fried Pickle Pimiento Cheese Sandwiches

Guest Post by Big Sister

My mother is rolling her eyes and saying this is a little far-fetched, but really, it tastes good.   I promise!  She also thinks I need to add mayonaise to the pimiento cheese but I hate mayonaise.   It is really a combination of two already posted recipes.  I wanted to do fried green tomatoes but there wasn’t a store in town cooperating with me.  Its almost time to grow my own!  They say we might hit 90 degrees here next week.  I know, I know, global warming is bad but I have had enough of winter!

Anyway, make up the recipe for these two recipes then put them together and VOILA!  A yummy tasting snack that I bet know one else is bringing to the Super Bowl party.

Pimiento Cheese and Oven Fried Pickles

I used my melon baller to get a little scoop of pimiento cheese and place it on one pickle.  Then I topped with another pickle.  I got the print outs for the toppers from Diana Rambles. I used double sided tape to stick them to toothpicks.

You’ve got one more day to show us your great stuff at the Super Bowl party:

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.
