Baked "Fried" Pickles

If you've never had fried pickles, you need to try them immediately!  I thought they sounded weird but tried them anyway on a vacation and became obsessed.  Since they are fried, they are obviously not very healthy so I had to find a way to make them lighter.  I found this version in which they are broiled, not fried, and they taste almost exactly the same.  Try them.  That is all.
