Homemade Healthier Fried Food Fake Out
I have a weakness for onion rings. My husband loves fried pickles, so I decided to come up with a healthy version while still getting my fried food fix.
Just doing a google search for “baked fried pickles” returns 4,400,400 results. Or check out a Pinterest Search using the same phrase yields thousands of mouth watering results. Using the same concept mixing the egg & flour to make a wet batter I decided to add my own spin with the added spices.
I LOVE “frying” this way.. It’s healthy, much cleaner & quick. In the restaurant we did NOT have a fryer so we “oven fried” our fried dishes for a healthier option to some favorites like Croquettes, eggplant parmigiano & fried chicken. The Secret Ingredient to achieve this: PANKO – Breadcrumbs won’t get crispy enough – Panko does. Crispy, crunchy, YUM! Panko is a must have in your pantry.
Crispy, Crunchy, Goodness
Serve the pickles with Ranch Dressing for dipping. But they are delightful just plain.
