    The combination just sounds odd to me, but I suppose I shouldn’t knock until I try it, right? Thanks for partying with us on Creative K Kids Tasty Tuesdays.

      I’ve seen these on TV and I thought – fried pickles??? We went to a pub a few weeks ago and it was on the menu so we tried it and loved it. I immediately came home and played with different coatings and dips – and this is what I ended up with – and we loved them too!! (So did my 19 year old grandson who just about ate them all!! )

  3. These look SO good! Thank you for sharing with us at the To Grandma’s house we go link party! Hope to see you tomorrow when the next party starts!
