Fried Pickle Poppers

http://hostthetoast.com/fried-pickle-poppers/

Serves: 6

 

 

Not to mention, these make amazing appetizers for parties, get-togethers, or watching sporting events. These Fried Pickle Poppers were eaten while watching a World Cup game, and they will be made again for the Super Bowl this year (and many times in between that). Make them once and you’ll be just as obsessed as I am!

 

Ingredients


For the Fried Pickle Poppers:

6 kosher dill pickles
1 cup cheddar & horseradish pub cheese (pimento cheese or even softened cream cheese would also work well here)
6 egg roll wrappers
Oil, for pan-frying

For the Chipotle Mayo Dip:

¾ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lime juice (about 1 lime)
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
½ teaspoon kosher salt

Cooking Method


They were tangy, crispy, crunchy, and not nearly as heavy and oily as a lot of fried foods.  Fried Pickles stole my heart that day, and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was when I saw Fried Pickles on a menu in NJ for the first time.

I’ve become a biiiit of a Fried Pickle fanatic.

So why has it taken me so long to make Fried Pickles for the blog?  Well, I really hate deep frying, so I was trying to come up with an easier fry-method, and lets be serious, Fried Pickles the “regular way” have been done to death.

I had to get creative, so naturally my mind went to cheese.  Cheese-Stuffed Fried Pickles.

FRIED PICKLE POPPERS.  Have you ever imagined a more perfect finger food?

I used an apple corer to cut out the insides of kosher dills.  Then, I spooned cheddar & horseradish pub cheese into the opening (pimento cheese would be great here too), and tried my best not to eat all of the cheesy pickles as they were.

Then I took egg roll wrappers and rolled the pickles up in them, and pan fried them until golden brown on all sides.

They rested briefly on a wire rack to cool as I hovered over them, rubbing my hands in anticipation.

Finally, I cut the Fried Pickle Poppers in half and dipped them in Chipotle Mayo before scarfing them down, and I have to say, they were even better than the Fried Pickle Chips I was used to ordering.
