Fried pickles are a common American treat when visiting a local restaurant. While their crunch may be extra satisfying, fried foods tend to be higher in calories and trans fats meaning they can negatively affect your health. Trans fats are associated with an increased risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other health conditions*. Try out this baked pickle alternative that is still full of crunch and flavor, plus the bonus of being able to make them at home!

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs

  • Pinch of black pepper
