Skinny "Fried" Pickles for the Birds
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. :(
I've only had fried pickles, once. That was enough, for me. I rarely eat fried foods, unless it's good fish 'n chips or fries (in duck fat).
Thank you for making my blog your one and only and also thank you again for the homemade fig jam from years back.
