Stuffed Dill Pickles

These tasty appetizers are so simple to make that I have only been able to find one printed recipe for them, in Ethel Farmer Hunter’s Secrets of Southern Cooking (1948). For the best results, make sure the pickles are ice cold when you start.

Yield: 32 appetizers

Using an apple corer, make a whole in one end of each pickle so that the corer bores a hole lengthwise through the pickle.

Using a spoon, a pastry bag, or whatever implement of destruction you deem appropriate for the task, fill the hole in each pickle with pimento cheese (this is best done with very cold pickles and room temperature pimento cheese).

Refrigerate stuffed pickles at least several hours or overnight. Stand pickles on end on a cutting board, and using a sharp knife, slice them lengthwise into quarters and serve.

    Growing up in Texas we bought those large dill pickles and stuffed them with Tuna salad! Unbelievable!

    Hello Chef!

    I was hoping to take a moment of your time to introduce myself and pitch my services.

    I’m a food photographer skilled in preparing & styling commissioned recipes for magazines, bloggers, and cookbook publishers – remotely out of my home studio. I also work closely with 2 family chefs and a number of outside chefs developing my own recipes to accompany my original food photography collection – all inexpensively priced and ready for use.

    If you’re looking to expand your food coverage, or outsource your own stuff, I think I could be an inexpensive addition to your team. Please feel free to contact me if you’re looking for someone who can handle either of these 2 scenarios:

    1. Prepare & shoot your provided recipes in our facilities
    2. Supply you with quality, made in advance food photos to go along with detailed cooking instructions.

    You can see samples of my work by visiting: http://www.carolinafoodphotography.com

    In an effort to show you what I can do I’d be happy to prepare a couple custom recipes free of charge. Thanks for your consideration and feel free to pass along my contact info to any of your colleagues. Have a great day!

    James Stefiuk
