Bacon Wrapped Pickle Spears

Bacon Wrapped Pickles

Okay, this barely qualifies as a recipe, but these bacon wrapped pickle spears were so amazing that I had to post it. This is one of those recipes where the finished product far surpasses the sum of its parts.

The tart brine of the pickle, coupled with the salty-savory of crispy bacon, all dunked in a cool and creamy Ranch dressing.

Seriously, this was one of the best things I’ve tasted in a long time!

You’ll need (for as many as you want to make)…

  • 1 “Crunchy Dill” pickle spear
  • 1 slice of thin-sliced bacon (I like the double smoked apple-wood.)
  • You favorite brand of Buttermilk Ranch dressing, for dipping
  • 1 toothpick

Pre-heat your oven to 425F

Let the pickle spears drain on paper towels for 14-20 minutes, then wrap 1 spear in 1 slice of bacon, securing with a toothpick.

Lay the bacon-wrapped spears on a foil-lined baking sheet, and bake 12-15 minutes, or until the bacon has crisped, turning once.

HomeChef Note: I’ve had a number of folks ask about using bleu cheese dressing (my favorite, too) instead of Ranch. Personally, I think the stronger flavor of the bleu might overwhelm the flavors on the bacon, but I plan to try it!

Enjoy!
