Dips for Pickle Chips
I like to eat these on their own, but if you want a dipping sauce ranch dressing is a perfect dipping sauce. Fry sauce made with mayo and sugar free ketchup is also a great dipping sauce. You can also make Cheddar Bacon Ranch Dip, Sriracha Dip, or French Onion Dip.
Can I make these in advanced?
These keto pickle chips are best served as soon as they come out of the oven after letting them cool for a bit. They are the best flavor wise and texture wise when they are served warm.
How to Store Pickle Chips
These chips are best served right away, if you store them they do lose the crispiness.
Tips & Variations of this Recipe
Change up the cheese. I used Monterey Jack cheese, but you can also use cheddar cheese, white cheddar cheese, or Pepperjack cheese.
Shred your own cheese. Shredded cheese is great for convenience but it is coated to make it not stick together when in the package. Shredding your own cheese is easy and is the best way to go for shredded cheese.
Drain the pickles. I find it best to drain the pickles a little bit before putting them in the muffin tin.
Lower the carbs. You can lower the carb amount by adding less onion powder and season salt.
Add some spice. If you want a little bit of a kick feel free to add a dash of cayenne pepper. You could also add a dash of hot sauce to make them have a little spice.
Are Pickles Keto Friendly?
Yes! Pickles are keto friendly as long as they are made without any additional sugar. In general, the best ones to use are dill pickles or sour pickles. You can use either one with this keto pickle chips recipe. You will want to use sliced pickled. You can slice a whole pickle up into slices if you want to.
When you are selecting the brand of pickles to use be sure to check the ingredient list as some brands add sugar and other non-keto friendly ingredients for the brining.
What are The Carbs in Dill Pickles?

Super easy, super yummy. I pat down my pickles to dry them off first. Helps get them more crispy.
