Bacon-Wrapped Pickles

By | Bacon, Recipes | No Comments

Bacon-Wrapped Pickles


  • 10 pickle halves
  • 1 package Boulder Sausage Bacon
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 2 oz sour cream
  • Scallions, sliced
  • Shredded pepper jack
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Ranch for dipping
  • Chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (if you like your bacon extra crispy, try baking it for 4-6 minutes before wrapping around the pickles).
  2. Halve pickles and scoop out seeds/insides. Throw away the insides. Pat pickles dry with a paper towel.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, shredded cheese, scallions, onion powder, and chili powder. Stir until well mixed.
  4. Scoop mixture into the halved pickles, then wrap with a strip of bacon. Poke through with a toothpick to help keep the pickles held together.
  5. Place pickles on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until the bacon is brown and crispy.
  6. Let pickles cool and garnish with parsley, then serve with ranch dressing.

For a fun and unique flavor, try soaking the bacon in whiskey overnight before you make this recipe! This will be sure to add a sweet, memorable taste that you’ll want to replicate over and over again!

Although, for many, flavor preferences vary. Alternatively, use regular Italian Boulder Sausage for a milder flavor.
