You must think I've lost my mind.
No, I'm not pregnant, but I sometimes crave pickles.
This is a popular Southern recipe, however I found a low-fat version on a lowfat cooking site, and instead of frying the pickles you bake them. I was quite excited to try this crazy recipe.
You make a lowfat dipping sauce with Greek yogurt instead of mayo and use cooking spray instead of vegetable oil.
Egg whites instead of buttermilk.
You get where I am going here?
Why did I even bother. I should have just given into my craving and fried the damn pickles.
This lowfat cooking is for the birds, and you know how I feel about lowfat mayo, don't bother.
Here is the original recipe for Fried Pickles if you want to enjoy them.
I am not going to post the lowfat baked version because they came out terrible.
A big waste of a good jar of pickles. :(
