Keto Cheesy Pickle Chips Ingredients, with overlay: shredded cheese, seasoning, dill pickles


To Prep: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and coat a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Blot the pickles with paper towels to remove excess liquid.

  1. Fill the bottom of each muffin cup completely with cheese (about 1/2 inch thick before baking).
  2. Place one pickle slice on top of the cheese in each cup.
  3. If using seasoning, sprinkle on top of the pickle in each cup.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges of each pickle chip just start to brown and crisp up.

Prep Tips

  • Variations: We used Colby Jack cheese in our original recipe, but you can switch it up with your favorite flavor of cheese. Cheddar cheese, pepper jack, and mozzarella would all taste fantastic. I do recommend buying a block of pure cheese and shredding your own, versus buying a bag of shredded cheese (which often contains additives and starches).
  • Baking: If you don’t have a muffin pan handy, you can also use a baking sheet. Make a small pile of cheese and place a pickle chip on top of the cheese. Be sure to leave space between each cheese pile because they will spread out during baking. Oven times may vary, no matter what baking method you use, so keep an eye on them and remove from oven when the cheese starts to bubble and before it is brown.
  • Dipping: Serve with your favorite keto-friendly dips. Ranch dressing, spicy mayo, and low carb Big Mac sauce are some of my favorites.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Eat Pickles On Keto?

Pickles are a keto-friendly food, as long as they do not contain added sugar. So while sweet pickles would be out of the question, there are a plenty of pickle varieties that you can enjoy. Dill pickle chips are my favorite for this particular recipe.

How Long Do Pickle Chips Stay Good?

Keep any leftovers in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. To reheat, I recommend using a toaster oven or baking in the oven for a few minutes until they crisp up again. While you could use a microwave to reheat, the cheese might not get crispy.
