These Oven-Baked Pickles Will Be Your New Snack Obsession

 

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

Use This Trick For Cutting Apples To Keep Them Fresh All Day

Fall is approaching very quickly. It’s one of my favorite times of the year. What’s not to like? You’ve got football, sleeping with the windows open, beautiful foliage, and of course the apples (Honeycrisps are my favorite).

Apples are a great addition to lunches and provide a healthy snacking option.

However, it can be a real pain to cut them up and keep them fresh. Luckily, Grant Thompson, shows us this amazingly simple trick to quickly, easily and safely cut an apple and keep it fresh all day.

Here are the 3 steps:

  1. Turn the apple upside down (on its top) as it will balance better.
  2. Cut the apple as if you are laying out a tic-tac-toe board with your knife.
  3. Keep the cut pieces together until you are ready to eat (a rubber band is perfect for this).
