INGREDIENTS FOR BACON WRAPPED PICKLES
- dill pickle spears
- ranch dip
Pickles – Dill pickles or sour pickles are the best for this recipe. Bread and butter pickles tend to be a little too sweet for this.
Bacon – I like to use center cut for this recipe as it has the least amount of fat in each strip. Thick cut is not as easy to wrap around the spears and takes a lot longer to get crispy.
HOW TO MAKE BACON WRAPPED PICKLES
STEP ONE: Preheat oven to 425F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a wire rack.
STEP TWO: Pat the pickle spears dry with a paper towel.
STEP THREE: Wrap each spear with a strip of bacon. Secure with toothpick if needed. Place the pickles on a baking sheet.
STEP FOUR: Bake 15-25 minutes depending on how crispy your like your bacon. Remove from the oven and enjoy warm!

WHAT IS THE BEST BACON FOR PICKLE FRIES?
I like to use a center cut bacon as it cuts down on the amount of fat on each strip. Use your favorite but I would watch out for flavored bacon like applewood or cherrywood smoked.
A thick cut of bacon might be harder to wrap around the pickle spear and will definitely take longer to cook and make crispy.
ARE THEY KETO FRIENDLY?
Totally! Just watch the sugar content on the pickles and bacon as they could be higher than you think.
IS RANCH DRESSING KETO?
Most of the store bought versions are but just be sure to check labels or make your own from scratch.
CAN I MAKE THESE IN THE AIR FRYER?
Yes, you can! Preheat the air fryer to 370F. Then air fry 10-15 minutes, flipping half way through.
CAN I REHEAT THEM?
Crisp them back up in the oven or the air fryer for a few minutes.
WHAT TO SERVE WITH BACON WRAPPED PICKLE SPEARS?
These make a great snack served alongside just about anything. I like to dip mine in ranch, bang bang sauce, or salsa!
TAPAS TIPS & TRICKS
- preheat your oven while you are wrapping the pickles.
- really pat the pickles dry to keep the bacon from sliding off.
- use center cut bacon for leaner cuts of bacon.
- secure the bacon with a toothpick to keep it from curling up when baking.
- cook on a wire rack to get the bacon as crispy as possible.
