'Joe Cooks' episode 1! Joe tackles his first Buzzfeed Recipes Test: deep fried pickles stuffed with cheese. Joe's going to be testing more Buzzfeed food recipes, making ramen, easy snacks and more. Want to know how it tastes? Joe's snack review tells it like it is. (Full recipe below)
Buzzfeed Tasty posted a video of cheesy stuffed fried pickles and we swooned. But we're novice cooks here at PrettyGoodVideos and we wanted to know if it really would work. Joe is our resident chef in training so here he is, hosting a new cooking series: Joe Cooks. It's his official Buzzfeed Test #1!
In this episode Joe tests one of the most popular Buzzfeed Food Recipes: Cheese-Stuffed Fried Pickle Recipe. Fried pickles are one thing but stuff a pickle with cheese and we're in! It looked so incredibly tasty but would it be cheesy and would it really work? Well, it kind of did. Watch as Joe walks you through it and get his full food review. He learns a lot along the way, like what the heck is Phyllo dough and why is it such a pain to work with. Joe makes cooking seem super easy so if you're interested in knowing how to make something, ask in the comments.
Want to try it yourself? Here's what you need:
Oil for frying
1 - Using an apple corer, remove the insides of the pickle
2 - Slice brie cheese in sticks and fill each pickle with a stick of brie
3 - Wrap the pickle carefully in a sheet of phyllo like a burrito (watch how Joe does it)
4 - Scramble 2 eggs in a bowl and dip each wrapped pickle completely in eggs
5 - Then dip them in the breadcrumbs in a bowl and place on a plate until they're all ready to fry
6 - Heat your oil to about 375 (See Joe's cool trick for knowing when oil is ready to fry)
7 - Fry each pickle until golden brown
