Ingredients & Variations

Experiment with your fave blend of pickles and cheese or make a variety to share!

PICKLES: Dill pickles have a crunchy bite and a slightly salty flavor. Cut them in crinkle cuts or cut them yourself into any thickness you like. Gherkins are smaller and can be pickled in brine, in vinegar, or in a sweetened brine that is not keto-friendly.

CHEESE: Cheddar cheese is a sharp-flavored, robust cheese that complements salty pickles. Swiss cheese, Gruyere, Provolone, or any combination of these cheeses make for tasty appetizers, too!

How to Make Keto Pickle Chips

Low-carb pickle chips are super easy to make, and it’s a snack that even non-keto eaters will beg to try:

  1. Pat pickle slices dry.
  2. Layer cheese and pickles (per recipe below) in prepared muffin tins.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake until the cheese is melted and crispy.

Tips for Crispy Pickles

  • For best results, make sure the pickle slices are super dry so the cheese can stick to them.
  • If using sliced cheese, cut into pieces that fit the muffin tin, and for shredded cheese, the finer the shred, the faster it will melt.

How to Store Crispy Pickles

Keep keto pickle chips in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat them on a baking sheet under the broiler or in the microwave.

    1. Pat, I am sorry that happened and thank you for posting this as I am interested in trying the recipe and was wondering if I need to grease the muffin tin or not, as the recipe does not specify either way, so I was leaning toward not, since to do so is not mentioned in the recipe.
