In case you haven’t noticed, I’m all about super simple recipes and after my Crock Pot, my oven is my next best friend. Making baked versions of traditionally fried foods is what I’m all about.

In addition to that, of course, is a love of football. We love enjoying finger foods on game day but that doesn’t mean I want to spend all morning stinking up the house with oily mess. Instead, we marry the two with easy recipes like these homemade baked fried pickle spears.

If you love the flavors but hate the mess (and the smell) of those game day favorites, then you will love this delicious and crunchy appetizer!
