Fried Pickles with Cheddar Cheese and Bacon

Fried Pickles with Cheddar Cheese and Bacon

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 7 minutes

Serve: 2 people


  • 4 medium-small kosher dill pickles
  • 2 ounces Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 strips bacon, lightly cooked and cut into small bits
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg


Cut a wedge out of the top of each pickle. It should run the almost the entire length and be triangular in cross section. Use a small spoon to dig the seedy insides out of each pickle. Stuff each with a generous amount of cheese and bacon. Place the lids back in place with two toothpicks (things will run more smoothly if the toothpicks are positioned parallel to each other). Prepare a three-station breading operation. Flour in the first container (or plate), the egg beaten with the tablespoon of milk in the second, and the panko crumbs seasoned with a pinch of cayenne in the third. Roll each stuffed pickle in the flour, shake off excess and move to the egg wash. Once coated in egg let excess drip off and move to panko for a bread crumb covering. Move back to egg and then again to panko for a second coating. Hold on a plate while you repeat the process with the other pickles. Place the pickles carefully into the Actifry and drizzle with 1 1/2 TBSP oil. Turn the cooker on and set the timer for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes continue cooking for 1-2 minute increments until desired browning is achieved.

Central Alberta Food Establishments

by on Feb.25, 2012, under FOOD!!!

I live in Central Alberta, Canada. This area is between Edmonton and Calgary. We are are land locked, and what people like to say “This is Beef Country”.

We have a lot of food establishments that serve what I call “Off the Truck Food”. “Off the Truck Food” is food that comes prepacked, portion controlled and frozen from one of the many distributors here in Canada.  This food can be prepared by anyone and pretty much tastes the same at each establishment. So eating out is not always an enjoyable event.

Then comes the rare places that surprise you and make fresh food with flavor. Some of these place are:

Bo’s in Red Deer This place has a smoker and does some pretty good brisket.

Cork’d Taphouse & Grill (2325 50 Avenue, Red Deer, AB) Dam good hamburger.

The Noodle House (4815 48 Ave, Red Deer, AB) Great Vietnamese

Blue Dragon Fine ( 7611 49 Ave Red Deer, AB ) Thai & Khmer Cuisine

Ngoc Linhs Vietnamese Restaurant (2-6722 50th Ave, Red Deer, AB) Great Vietnamese

I am always looking for good place to have a great meal. So if you read this do please let me know of your great places to eat in Central Alberta.

Till Next time, thanks for your time.
