You have a few options when it comes to the pickle portion of this snack. For your pickle fries, you can either buy the pre-cut pickle spears or you can buy whole pickles and quarter them. I like buying the pre-cut spears because it makes the snack that much quicker with one less prep step.

For these bacon wrapped pickles, thick cut bacon is not a good idea. You don’t want to overcook the pickle but you have to get the bacon crispy for the snack to be the right texture. So, go with the regular cut bacon for best results.

The keto diet goes for a low carb, high fat sort of scenario in order to get your body to burn fat and not carbohydrates. The ingredients used in this recipe are on the keto-friendly list and cover the the low carb and high fat route the keto diet likes to take.


There are some ranch dressings you can purchase at the store that are already keto-friendly. However, many people like to make their own ranch dressing which is quite easy. This allows them to make it as keto-friendly as possible. I have my own version of homemade ranch HERE.

My family is head over heels when it comes to pickles. Who am I kidding, they’re head over heels for bacon as well. So, it’s always a hit when I whip these pickle fries up as a snack or appetizer before dinner. I’m sure I’ll be making them often for years to come!

    These are the best! I’ve tried them with different brands of pickles and Claussen pickles are the BEST for this!!

    1. I haven’t tried it this way, you’d have to cook at a high enough temperature for the bacon to be able to get crisp!

    Ok, so I am not sure what went wrong … but I about caught my house on fire. 🤭 Ok, well the oven was quickly releasing smoke everywhere. I even had a pan under the pan I was using. I currently have allll my windows and doors open airing out. But I have made these before and they were awesome. 😀

      Our electric oven can’t be heated to more than 390 °F (395 °F if we’re careful), or it will smoke like crazy and set off the smoke alarm (which then sounds off in the whole residential building!). I’m sure there’s something wrong with it. But even at that (low) temperature, all our dishes come out right – although sometimes we have to add a few more minutes to make sure. In the case of this delicious recipe, a few more minutes made sure the bacon was nice and crisp.

      1. For the smoky ovens, have you guys tried easy off inside to see if some kind of residue is causing the smoke?

    Can I prep these the day before and then bake the day if my party? I’m having a party tomorrow. Thanks, Tina

  4. I think I’m in love. I’m a pickle addict – I’ve only recently discovered fried pickles, but wrapped in bacon?!!! oh my yes!

    Sour and salty! I love pickles and I love bacon! Right up my alley… making this for our next gameday party!

  6. Two of my favorite things in one bite! I have never thought to have the two together! Sounds tasty!
