Bacon Wrapped Pickle Fries Recipe

Turn the vent on over your stove if you have one. When you open the oven the bacon grease that drips down on the baking pan will get smoky and may cause your smoke alarm to go off. That may or may not have happened at my house a few times. Oh, well. Still a low carb great tasting appetizer or snack.

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Pickle Fries

These pickle fries are one of the easiest yet most satisfying snacks or appetizers you’ll ever eat. This snack is made with pickle spears wrapped in smoky strip of bacon, then baked to crispy perfection. Serve them with ranch dressing and watch this tasty snack disappear!

Recipe Tips.

Use the regular cut bacon slices as thick cut bacon will not bake quickly and get crispy before the pickle becomes mushy.

We have two camps in our house, those that love the dill pickles and others that love the sweet pickle for this recipe. Go ahead and use the pickle that you love to eat. This is important, if you don’t like the pickle, you won’t like this appetizer. You can use store bought pre-cut pickles or we have a homemade pickles recipe that is just delicious and an easy pickle recipe too; no canning required.

Pat the excess moisture off each pickle spear so the bacon sticks better using a paper towel. You can use whole pickles and slice your own. Depending on the size, slice in half or in quarters. If using mini dill pickles, cut the bacon pieces in half before wrapping the bacon slice around the pickle.

Wrap each spear with a slice of bacon. If your pickles are on the smaller side, go ahead and cut the bacon in half. However, the bacon will shrink as it cooks. Secure the bacon strips with a toothpick if needed.

Place seam side-down on a baking sheet fitted with a wire rack. If you don’t have a wire rack, you can use a parchment paper lined baking sheet, but for best results will be better if you use the wire rack. This allows the heat to get all the way around the pickle appetizer.

Bake for 20 minutes until you have crispy bacon to your liking.

Serve warm or at room temperature. If you used toothpicks to hold the bacon in place, remove those before serving.

Enjoy ranch or your favorite dipping sauce.
