Fried Pickles

Depending on what part of the country you are from, you may know these as “frickles”! Fried pickles are a classic bar food that doesn’t have to be on your no-no list.

Low in carbs because you are using the Profile Pancake Mix and low in fat because you are air frying instead of deep frying is a win-win.

The secret to getting your air fryer fried pickles EXTRA CRISPY is to make sure you let the pickles drain out as much extra moisture as you can before frying. Put them in a strainer and then pat them dry.
