Baked Fried Pickles

Baked Fried Pickles: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

 Several years ago my husband and I tried our very first fried pickle. I never imagined it would taste as good as it did. All it took was that one fried pickle and my husband were hook. We have actually ordered them as an appetizer a few times when we eat out and I have even tried a homemade baked variety. But none of them compare to the first one we had and I think that is because the very first one was a fried pickle spear and all the others since have been sliced fried pickles.

Baked Fried Pickles: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I have determined that I prefer the fried spear because there is a higher ratio of pickle to breading, where as with the slices the ratio of pickle to breading is about the same.

Baked Fried Pickles
1 jar dill pickles
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 - 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 400┬║ F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

In a shallow bowl whisk together the egg and milk. Add flour to a shallow bowl (I start out with 1/2 cup and add more as needed). Pour panko into a shallow bowl.

Drain the pickles and then pat them dry with a paper towel. One at a time, coat the pickles on all sides with flour. Then dip the pickle into the egg, then coat with panko and set on prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes, flip and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or until crispy and lightly browned.
