Get ready for Game Day with these Ultimate Fried Pickles. It is the appetizer of my dreams, a fried pickle topped with creamy 5-Ingredient mac& cheese and a cherry tomato.
I grew up with Big 10 football, tailgating in Champagne-Urban while the mighty Illini took the field. There was a sea of blue and orange as far as my young eyes could see. It would be years before I gave a hoot about football, but those long Saturdays in the stands instilled in me a love of the experience. And I remember the food. Whether we were tailing in the parking lot or watching the game from home there was always an abundance of snack food.
My team affiliations have changed, I am more of a conference girl, less concerned about one particular team. But my love of Game Day food is strong. Fall Saturday’s at the casa are reserved for spending time with friends, watching whichever game is on and snacking on delicious treats. Especially fun snacks that don’t take forever to make like my Ultimate Fried Pickles.
These little morsels are the end-all be-all of snack hacks. I absolutely adore fried pickles but they are kind of a pain to make. When I saw Farm Rich Crispy Dill Pickles at Walmart the brilliant idea for this recipe came to me. The box went in the cart along with the cutest baby tomatoes.
I love to mix up pre-made items by adding a homemade element, making it my own. There was something about the idea of a crispy fried pickle topped with a dollop of my 5-Ingredient Mac& Cheese and a teeny tiny cherry tomato that makes me so very happy. All of it ready in less than 30 minutes too!
