[Recipe] Fried Pickles

I like fried. I like pickles. I LOVE fried pickles.

Fried pickles and ranch dressing are a match that no one can keep apart. Sure, they’re both married to other things. Ranch to salad. Pickles, well pickles are pretty promiscuous actually, spreading their love with most anything, but you get my point. Fried pickles and ranch are a love affair no one can deny. They just set off fireworks in your mouth.

This past Christmas, my husband and I decided we’d take advantage of a good deal on the new T-Fal Actifry. I love a new kitchen appliance, and I love that the Actifry effectively “fries” anything you put in it with much less oil than is required by conventional fryers. The Actifry produces crispy fried anything with just 1-2 teaspoons of oil – any kind of oil, allowing you to fry your favourite foods in healty oils like olive and grapeseed. Wonderful!

One of the first things I had to try in my Actifry were french fries, of course. I’m a fry fanatic. The Actifry didn’t disappoint. Since then I’ve gotten a bit braver, making all kinds of fried goodies, including these breaded pickle chips.
