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.)

I love, love, love this recipe! Delicious!!!
my daughter loves fried pickles I usually wrapped jalapenos and bacon with cream cheese, I was thinking this might be good as well but I have a question... what type of pickles do you use for this recipe? Are the Vlasic crispier pickle better or does it really not matter? And do you buy whole pickles and then slice them into the Spears?
It doesn't really matter what brand of pickle, I just make sure I buy dill, not sweet. I buy the spears and slice them, but you could slice your own as well.
This are very good! Adding a brushing of a sweet smoky barbecue sauce on them and eating them without ranch is good too! Very delish!
Would these stay ok in a warm crockpot for a few hours?
These look awesome. I would totally eat on these little guys!
My husband would love these!!
Lunch today - YUM!
Making these today! My 14 year old son asked me to make these! Can’t wait!
Yum! I'm going to make these for my Bacon loving son using Spicy Pickles - for our Christmas! He will be so happy and impressed! Also going to choose one of the Hot Cocoa's that you put in the Hot Cocoa grouping (I think that was you?) - taste testing starts today! Yay! 🙂 Thanks for making Christmas Yummy!
These are my new go-to snack! I keep the ranch suggested on hand. Thank you!
One of the best ideas I’ve seen in a while...combining two of my favorite foods! Thanks for sharing can’t wait to make them. 🙂
I made mine a little different, but it was delicious! I used Bubbies' Pickles, and the whole ones are small enough to wrap. On some of them, I used two pieces of bacon though. Very tasty! Thanks for sharing!
Such a fun recipe and perfect for game day! Love how easy these come together too! YUM!
omg I fear I would eat WAY too many of these- they look so freaking delicious!!
Seriously 2 of my favorite things in one! Pinned!
Yum! I sprinkled some sauerkraut over them when serving and it was delicious! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! 🙂
We ate these on our challenge. We Loved them, making them for church tonight.
My husband would love this! Perfect for Game Day or as a shared appetizer for a girls' night in!
These were amazing! I am so glad I tried these. My absolutely favorite snack/appetizer now. Thank you so much for this recipe!
Do you refrigerate them?
Yes, after cooking, I would refrigerate them.
I don't know why I didn't try these sooner!!! They are insanely delicious! I started a fuel cycle week today and made these because they are on your menu for the second Deep S day. How long will these last in the refrigerator? I won't be able to eat them for four days and I am hoping that they will still be good on Sunday when I can put them back on my menu. Thank you, Sarah, for all of your recipes and your encouragement.
One of our favorites!! It's a keeper Keto or not.
Has anyone tried air frying these?
