In This Recipe


  1. Heat your broiler.
  2. Remove a thin pickle from a jar.
  3. Set the pan under the broiler and don't touch it until the pickle chars. Mine took about 5 minutes. I turned it once.
  4. You will feel weird and like a fraud, until you taste it. Enjoy with steak, sausages, and chops of all kind.
