My whole family loves pickles . . . and bacon. So why not combine the two for a tasty snack? Seriously, these are so good and so easy to make.
Truly, this can hardly be called a “recipe.” But I thought some of you may be looking for appetizer ideas for the Holidays. To see just how EASY this recipe is, watch the video below.
The Holidays can be a challenge to anyone . . . especially if you are trying to eat low carb or Trim Healthy Mama. There are parties and gatherings FILLED with sugary, high-carb treats. It can be daunting to try and stay on plan! (If you want some accountability, why not join my 2 Week Sugar Free Challenge?)
That is why it is a good idea to take your own treats. Offer to bring a dish to help out, then make something you can eat to take with you. That way, you can be sure to have something to eat, and you don’t feel like you are missing out.
These Bacon Pickle Fries would be a great thing to take to a party. I think they taste better after they have completely cooled, which allows the bacon to crisp a little more. If you are unsure of eating warm pickles (My sister-in-law was afraid she would be desecrating her bacon with a warm pickle. Ha!), just let them cool completely before you eat them.
That is, if you can! These smell so good while they are baking! My mouth is watering just thinking about them! I like to serve them with a Ranch dressing for dipping.
Of course, you can use a store bought Ranch dressing (try to find one with 2 carbs per serving or less), but my favorite Ranch dressing EVER is Rhonda’s Ranch Dressing. It is so creamy and delicious and only takes a few minutes (like THREE) to make. If you have not tried it yet, you need to put it next on your list to try! (It is very thick, so I add a little bit of unsweetened almond milk to mine to thin it a bit.)
So, what do you need for these Bacon Pickle Fries?
4 Pickle Spears
8 Slices Bacon
I know I am not the first person to think of wrapping pickles with bacon. (But I did not look up any “recipes” to create this.)
