Baked (not fried) Pickles

     While writing an article on fair foods, I came across a recipe for fried pickles. Well not quite fried, they are baked instead. If I can bake something instead of mess with hot grease, I usually take that option. These turned out to be quick and easy to make. Since I used "Wickles Pickles," which have a little more kick, these "baked" pickles had some kick, too. It was an interesting experiment and well worth the try if you like pickles and a little zing.

Baked (not fried) Pickles
1 cup sliced pickles
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
2 T. melted butter

1 tsp. dill
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cayenne (optional)
salt and pepper
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 450 degrees and spray coat a baking sheet.

Mix Panko crumbs, butter, dill, garlic, cayenne, salt and pepper in small bowl.

Put flour in separate small bowl or rimmed dish.

Crack eggs into small bowl and beat until blended.

Dredge pickle slices in flour, then dip in eggs and then coat in Panko crumbs mixed with seasonings. Lay pickles on baking sheet in single rows. Repeat process until all pickles are used.

Bake for 15 minutes.

Best served with sauce for dipping.
