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.
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:
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.
