|Refrigerator pickles are great,|
but our tastebuds longed
for something new.
Therefore, one night, I decided to take matters into my own kitchen. My children do not like it when I head to the kitchen with an idea and an apron. However, they were not home on that particular evening. Hubby and I had planned to enjoy some baked fish for supper. To go with the fish, I created my newest culinary invention: baked cucumber biscuit twists.
|They looked messy right before|
I put them in the oven.
I began by slicing the cucumbers lengthwise into long strips. Then I put the strips in a gallon-size plastic bag. I added a few tablespoons of self-rising flour and, since we were baking salmon that night, tossed in a generous helping of Old Bay seasoning. Then I shook the bag to coat the cucumber strips.
Meanwhile, I made some biscuit batter. Then I created long ropes, like when we used to make clay snakes in preschool, out of the batter. This was messy, as biscuit batter is gooey.

looked weird, but smelled and tasted great!
Carefully, I wrapped the biscuit batter snakes around the coated cucumber strips. Then I melted some butter on top of which I sprinkled more Old Bay seasoning. I brushed the seasoned butter on the wrapped cucumbers. Then I baked them in a pre-heated 450-degree oven on the top rack just as I would have baked regular biscuits.
I expected gross mush. Hubby was skeptical. We were both hungry. The cucumber biscuits smelled amazing and held together when we picked them up, so we went ahead and tasted them.

pair well with salmon and couscous.
