Bacon Wrapped Pickle Recipe

Imagine sinking your teeth into a crispy, savory bacon-wrapped pickle spear. The tangy, salty pickle perfectly complements the smoky, savory bacon. It’s the BEST flavor combination! Even if you’re not a huge pickle fan, you’ll love these. They’re sure to please any crowd. Plus, they’re keto-friendly if you’re looking to cut back on carbs!

These bite-sized treats are not only delicious but also incredibly easy to make. Simply wrap pickle spears in bacon slices and bake until the bacon is crispy. Serve them with a side of ranch dressing for dipping and watch them disappear in no time!

4 Ingredients to Make Them

3 ingredients, really, if you exclude the chopped dill for garnish! Bacon wrapped pickles are such a simple appetizer but will have everyone singing their praises. Looking for exact measurements? They’re all in the recipe card at the end of the post.

  • Dill Pickle Spears: The tangy, salty base of the appetizer.
  • Bacon Slices: Choose your favorite, whether it’s thick-cut, thin-cut, or smoked bacon.
  • Ranch Dressing: For dipping the bacon wrapped pickles in. You can swap this out for any of your favorite sauces! I have a few more ideas below.
  • Fresh Dill: This is totally optional, but chopped fresh dill adds an extra bright and delicious flavor to the appetizer.

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Pickles

It’s so easy to whip up this flavor-packed appetizer! Bacon wrapped pickles are also great as a quick and easy low carb snack that you can enjoy anytime.

  1. Preheat Oven, Prepare Pan: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Pat Dry: Use a paper towel to absorb any pickle juice from the pre-cut pickle spears.
  3. Wrap: Wrap each pickle spear in a slice of bacon then place each spear on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake: Bake for 20 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.
  5. Garnish and Serve: Garnish with fresh chopped dill and serve with a side of ranch for dipping.

Tips for Success

  • Pat Your Pickles Dry: Don’t skip this step! Excess moisture from the pickles can prevent the bacon from crisping up properly.
  • Wrap Them Tightly: This will help the bacon adhere to the pickles and prevent them from falling apart during cooking. You can also use food picks to hold them together if you’re struggling to keep the pickles wrapped.
  • Don’t Overcrowd the Baking Sheet. Leave some space between the bacon wrapped pickles to allow for even cooking.
  • Make Them Mini: For a more bite-sized version of this dish, use mini dill pickles and bacon slices that have been cut in half.

Homemade Dipping Sauces

These pickles are great on their own, but even better with a creamy sauce! Ranch is always a good idea, but if you’re wanting to switch things up, here are a few of my favorite recipes! Find more homemade sauce recipes here.

Storing Leftover Bacon Wrapped Pickles

While bacon wrapped pickles are best enjoyed fresh, here’s how to store any leftovers you might have:

  • In the Refrigerator: Place any leftover pickles in an airtight container and refrigerate them for up to 2 days. The bacon may lose some of its crispiness, but the overall flavor will still be enjoyable.
  • To Reheat: To reheat the pickles, simply place them on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes, or until the bacon is nice and crispy again.
