My parents ask me weekly if I ever get sick of eating at Buffalo Wild Wings. The answer is always no, and I would bet that I’m not the only North Dakota State student who finds themselves with a strong hankering for wings every other night of the week.
Any B-Dubs regular also knows wings aren’t the only things that the restaurant has to offer; I happen to be a very big fan of their fried pickles. That’s why I pinned a great recipe for some imitation “fried” pickles.
What makes this recipe a little bit different is that the pickles will actually be baked rather than fried. Trust me, this is a lot safer for everyone involved, especially if you’re an inept fryer like me. Here’s how you can bring some Buffalo Wild Wings flavor to your own kitchen:
1/3 cup flour
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon hot sauce (I used mild sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings)
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
A pinch of salt and pepper
1 cup of panko breadcrumbs (You can find a box at Walmart)
½ cup of grated parmesan cheese
1 16 oz. jar of dill pickles
- Heat the oven to broil on high.
- Place a cooling rack or something similar on top of a cookie sheet and spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the eggs, flour, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, Cajun seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper using a whisk.
- In another bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.
- Drain the jar of pickles and pat the pickles dry using a paper towel.
- Dredge the pickle slices in the wet ingredient mixture, then coat evenly with the breadcrumbs. Set the coated slices on the cooling rack.
- Broil the pickles for about three minutes, or until golden brown, on one side, then flip them over and back for another two to three minutes.
- Serve them hot with some southwest ranch and enjoy!
