Are bacon pickle fries keto or low-carb?
I love pickle fries because they are delicious! FULL stop! But they are also low carb and keto friendly! So if you want to have an appetizer option that fits that diet then this is a great idea! Trust me when I say your keto friends will totally ask you for the recipe!
What can you serve with these easy fried pickles?
You can serve bacon pickle fries with the same things you would serve traditional fries:
- By themselves (my personal favorite).
- With ketchup.
- Guacamole (a total crowd favorite).
- BBQ sauce.
And ultimately with whatever you crave and love. The salty, tangy, zmoky combo pairs great with pretty much anything.
What are the best pickles to use for bacon wrapped pickles?
I love to use snack size pickles because they have the perfect bite size and you don’t need to cut them before (essentially saving you an extra step)
If you prefer to go with traditional pickles then quarter the pickle spear so they are smaller and easier to eat. That also keeps the pickle/bacon ratio optimal.
Make a large batch of these before any party, trust me when I say your guests will be head over heels in love with them and will go for “just one more”, yes, they are that addicting.
Making these fries is so easy and quick, they’ll be done in no time!
