I like you style! we have been trying to perfect the fried pickle - most are too salty... these look like fun! might need to try a few with the next cook
Well, these are salty but I don't think they are too bad. I liked them.

I'm waiting to see the final winner on this one, Disco. Friends of mine were raving about smoked bacon wrapped dill pickles, so I made a bunch. As far as I was concerned, they were a "why bother". So just gonna see what you come up with.

The pickle just wrapped in bacon was kind of boring. I will post my further efforts. Thanks!

Starting to worry about you disco🤣 but they do look good
No need to worry. There is nothing wrong... nothing wrong... nothi....................

Disco, you have been on fire lately. Nice job.

Ok Disco, it's your fault - from one off center chef to another. You got me concentrating on pickles?! AGGGGGG!

Maybe had one too many.... ok, 4 Irish Oatmeal Stouts this afternoon at my favorite brew pub and ordered the " new fried pickles."

Never saw pickles sliced like this - spear sliced lengthwise , breaded and fried. Served with ranch dressing. This might be a way for you to plate your picke poppers!? Imagine the possibilities and variations?!

Concept - Prep the slices as desired, slice spears into strips, bread in corn meal, and air fry or deep fry. 🍻🍻

I understand one of the worst part of home pickling is having to store them. I would be happy to help you store some of those. You can trust me.
Ha Ha , yes storing them is a problem here as i have to find a good hiding place as Mona has a hard time saying no to her family when they say they ran out of the last bottles we gave them, so she hands over more.
Awwww i am sure i could hide them at your place , , nice of you to offer.

I think i am going to try mustard pickle spears , than your bacon wrap and crust

David

ps: maybe a light mustard dipping sauce also

I hear you on the hiding place problem. I have relatives in Edmonton that I visit. When I come through the door they don't say "Hi" they say "Where's the bacon?"

I really hope you do a post on the Mustard Pickle version and dipping sauce. Sounds like it would be delicious!

sounds like a plan to me also. I might have time in a couple weeks to make a batch of Mustard pickles. Than yes i will post the " big pickle pop post "
thanks for the ideas, this weekend , ( Holiday weekend )I might be able to steal a few hours for myself, probably just a meatloaf or a fatty

Thanks Disco for the great ideas and tutorials

Your Bacon Wrapped Pickles sound tasty. These Southern Kool Aid Pickles? That will take some convincing.😆. Seriously, who was Smokin' what when they were eatin' Pickles and Drinking Kool Aid and the thought hit! " Hmmm. I bet if..."..JJ

Definitely a new one on me. What's next, a grape soda martini?
