While it does sound a bit odd, don’t knock Pickled Grapes until you have tried it! This condiment is the perfect mixture of sweet and tart.
The best of two worlds collide in Bacon-wrapped Pickles. Also known as “pickle fries,” these goodies will be a hit at your next party or game.
For the best results, make sure to use crunchy dill pickles: the type that you find in the refrigerated section at the supermarket, not the versions that are shelf stable.
You can serve the pickles as is, but we like them best with some ranch dressing on the side for dipping. If you like your bacon extra crispy, pre-cook it for a few minutes in a skillet, let cool, then wrap the pickles and finish the recipe.
12 dill pickle spears
12 strips bacon
ranch dressing, for dipping
24 toothpicks, soaked in water for 30 minutes
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (218 degrees C).
Carefully wrap each pickle spear in a piece of bacon. Secure with 2 toothpicks.
Place the pickles on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Bake until the bacon is crispy, 20 to 25 minutes, turning the pickles occasionally.
Remove the toothpicks and serve with ranch dressing.
