It's no secret that my husband and I like the taste of bar type food.  If my husband had his choice, we would be eating wings and breaded mushrooms 3 or 4 times a week.  But even though we both think these foods are totally yummy, neither one of us want all the fat and calories that go with it. 

Just like with my "Oven Baked Buffalo Wings" (see the recipe HERE), I have found a somewhat healthier way of making some of our favorite foods.  One food that I really find yummy is breaded pickles.  I like them so much that I tried to come up with a way to make them at home (without all the fat and calories).  And just like my recipe for buffalo wings, by eliminating the deep frying process, you eliminate lots of calories!! Here is my recipe for super yummy oven baked breaded pickles!

*1 jar     dill pickle chips or spears (your preference)
*1    egg
*2 tbsp.  milk
*1 cup    flour

*1 cup    panko bread crumbs
*Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 450*, place a large cookie sheet into the oven while it heats up. Once oven is heated, remove the cookie sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray. While oven is heating up, drain pickle chips on paper towels. 

Beat egg and milk together in a small bowl. Place flour in another bowl and bread crumbs in a separate bowl.  Dip pickle slices into flour, then egg, and then bread crumbs.  Make sure to coat pickle slices completely with bread crumbs.  Place slices onto cookie sheet and spray the top of the pickles with cooking spray. This will help them brown and crisp. 

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Turn slices over and spray with more cooking spray.  Bake for an additional 8-10 minutes or just until golden brown.  Serve with Ranch dressing or my favorite, horseradish sauce. Enjoy!!
