In my attempt to eat healthier, one of the things I find hardest to replace is snacks. Let’s be honest- sometimes an apple or veggie slices just don’t it for me. I’m a salty/crunch snacker, so finding things to replace some of those items can be difficult, especially since I am not a big fan of “low-fat” versions of foods. I would rather eat a little of the real thing the version where fat is replaced by chemicals.
I have also recently become addicted to pintrest, which is kind of a like a visual way to favorite different things online. It is great for organizing recipes you want to try, crafts to make, clothes you like, etc. I have actually made several things I found on pintrest, so it isn’t just a way to waste time for me. This recipe is inspired by something I saw there, but I tweaked it to make it even lower in points than the original recipe was.
Oven Fried Pickles (6 WW points+ per serving, serves 2)
1 jar of pickles
1/8 cup flour
1 large egg and 1 large egg white
¾ cup Panko bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Take pickles, and drain in a colander. Pat dry with paper towels.
Put into a Tupperware container, then sprinkle in the flour. Put a top on shake until all the pickles are coated in flour.
Lay coated pickles on racks on top of a baking sheet, without over lapping. Spray with olive oil spray.
Bake for approximately 7 minutes, then flip, spray the other side, and bake for an additional 7 minutes. Both sides should be nicely browned.
These are excellent on their own, and a little bit of ranch dip goes a long way.
