Y’all have heard of Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers, right? Well, meet her sister– the juicier, brinier (maybe not hotter, LOL) but definitely more popular, once you take a bite….Bacon Wrapped (Ranch and Cheese Stuffed) Pickle Poppers.
Did I mention RANCH AND CHEESE STUFFED? Um, yeah. This is legit tailgating, party food. Dude Food. Put it out for the ladies who lunch. Just make it. And eat it. And you’re welcome!
I would LOVE to take credit for this recipe, but I gotta give my girl, Caytlin McCleery, all the kudos on this. We recently worked together on a grilling segment in Salt Lake City. You guys, this girl knows her way around grills and smokers like no one’s business. Check out her Facebook page Cayt’s Meats and Meals for lots of amazing grilling advice and recipes.
What makes this such a killer recipe is the combo of the cream cheese, shredded cheddar and the hint of ranch. Um, and, the BACON. Oh. Mah. Gawd. Once you slice those big ‘ol dill pickles in half and scoop out the middles, you just fill them with the cheesy, ranch goodness and then wrap in that thick cut bacon. What’s up, delicious? Oh, hi! I want you to be the star of my par-tay, bay-bay!
