A couple weeks ago, Udi’s asked me to create a “hack” using one of their products, plus a very small selection of other ingredients. I thought this was going to be a super easy challenge, but it was actually a lot harder than it looks. Seriously, this challenge almost got the best of me…but it ended up being a lot of fun last weekend playing with all the ingredients. I ended up creating these easy gluten free fried “pies” using their bread for the pie crust.
Don’t these easy gluten free fried “pies” look totally scrumptious? They were gobbled up in about 2 minutes…I almost didn’t get these pictures because the kids started swarming like a bunch of hungry sharks. The combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and coconut is absolutely amazing. Of course all that butter they are fried in soaks into the bread and creating that buttery crust flavor that is what’s delicious about a fried pie.
This hack really does get the bread to taste almost like a fried pie. Make sure to take the time to cut off the crusts, then after filling the inside, pinch the sides gently together. It helps keep the filling inside while frying, but it doesn’t seal shut. Yes, that is a lot of butter in the pan; however, it is necessary to get that buttery flavor. It soaks all the way through both slices of bread so the inside becomes a moist and creamy middle with a crunchy outside. By the time both sides have soaked up the butter it starts to brown on the outside. Make sure sprinkle with powdered sugar right when it come out of the hot butter.
