Baked "Fried" Pickles - Secret Recipe Club

This month for Secret Recipe Club I was assigned a beautiful blog called Life's Simple Pleasures. I absolutely love the design of the blog and there are so many YUMMY looking recipes. There were a lot of desserts which normally would make me jump with joy. (As you might have guessed I like baking) But my husband and I decided to go sugar free for a month. No refined sugar, no unrefined sugar, no sugar at all unless it was naturally occurring in the food. (7 more days till were DONE!).

If you are able to eat some sugar please go and check out Jess' blog. Seriously, like maybe you feel like a lemon square, or possibly some swirly roasted banana bread, or maybe these double apple mini bundt cakes, or if you are feeling really brave these amazing looking 7 layer magic bars.

There were also some really great looking savoury dishes. We were having some people over for our weekly Game of Thrones potluck party (yeah we are those people). So I decided on these "fried pickles" that are actually baked. I changed the recipe slightly to make them vegan. They were salty, crunchy and very delicious. Thanks for the recipe Jess!

Baked "Fried" Pickles
Via Life's Simple Measures

1/4 cup water
3 to 4 tbsp. all purpose flour
1 tsp. vegan worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. seasoning salt
1/2 tsp. dill
2 to 3 dill pickles, thinly sliced
1-1/2 c. bread crumbs

Turn on broiler in oven (500°F). Place bread crumbs into shallow bowl; set aside. In another shallow bowl, beat water, flour, worcestershire and seasoning together. It should become a paste.

Add the pickles to the paste mixture and toss until well coated.

One at a time, coat pickles with bread crumbs and place on cookie sheet. Bake 4 to 6 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and flip over each pickle slice. Bake an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately.
