These Oven-Baked Pickles Will Be Your New Snack Obsession

Baked, not fried!

If you love deep fried pickles, you’ll love this recipe! These pickles are baked, and trust me, they taste just as good as the fried stuff.

For this recipe, you don’t have to pull out a vat of oil, but you still get the crunch factor. The use of panko crumbs gives you a nice breading on the outside, with a burst of garlic-dill pickle flavor as you take a bite.

And the best part? It doesn’t take very long to make. So gather up those pickles, get to baking and enjoy!

Ingredients:

1. Dill pickle spears

2. 1 egg

3. A few sprigs of fresh dill
