- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
- 32 pickle slices (actually I used a whole jar of homemade pickles so I didn't count)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place the breadcrumbs, flour, and egg whites into 3 separate bowls. Pat each pickle slice dry, coat it in flour, dip it in the eggs, then coat in breadcrumbs (I learned a trick on a cooking show once for this process- keep one hand separate for the dry ingredients and one for the wet- it saves a bigger mess in the end!). Place the pickles on a baking sheet lined with tin foil. Bake about 8 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Serve with a side of ranch.
Not gonna lie, my poor chips look like they need to see the sun or something. Some of the recipes I found said to heat the breadcrumbs in a pan on the stove beforehand to get them more golden and toasty. I did not do this, but I think I'm going to try it next time.
Also, I have never made homemade pickles before, but decided to experiment with them this past Fall. We are just trying them now, and I didn't cut them thin enough, so our chips were a little mushy in the middle. I also had way too much vinegar in the canning liquid, so that kind of overpowered the taste a bit. I think next time I'm going to try it with store bought pickle chips instead. I like pickle chips too much- I want to get this recipe right! :)
Have you guys had any luck with making homemade pickle chips? What recipe do you use?
