Bacon-Wrapped Pickles & RB Float

‘Twas a beautiful afternoon for a snack outdoors! I whipped up a sugar-free root beer float and these adorable bacon-wrapped pickles to enjoy a bite in the sunshine.

Bacon Wrapped Pickles with Buffalo Dip

As my pickles were fairly small, I split them each in two and let them sit on a paper towel to drain well. For larger pickles, I would suggest cutting them into quarters.

Slice uncooked bacon lengthwise then wrap each piece around a pickle spear. Secure with a toothpick.

Place pickles on a wire rack set inside a foil-lined cookie sheet. I cooked mine for 8 minutes at 350 and then broiled on high for 4 minutes to crisp them up. Serve with your favourite dip. Mine is a mixture of ¼ cup mayo and 2 tbsp Frank’s buffalo wings sauce.

Sugar-free Root Beer Float

In the blender, combine ¾ can sugar-free root beer (I used Diet A&W root beer), ¼ cup heavy whipping cream and 6-8 ice cubes. Slowly pour into large glass (it will be very frothy!) and top with remaining root beer before serving.
