Key Ingredients

Parmesan pickle chips are just a four ingredient recipe! Here is what you’ll need

Grated Parmesan – get the pre-grated parmesan, do not grate it yourself otherwise the cheese is too gooey.

Bacon – a few slices of crispy cooked and crumbled bacon.

Pickles – dill pickle slices are used but you can also use sweet heat pickles instead.

Cajun Seasoning – use your favorite cajun seasoning or all-purpose seasoning

The homemade cherry pepper ranch is an absolutely addictive dip! I highly recommend making this and pairing it with the parmesan pickle chip:

Mayonnaise – the creamy base for the cherry pepper ranch.

Buttermilk – this thins out the dip, makes it more dippable and adds a little tang.

Cherry Peppers – we’ll use the peppers and their juice. You can find these in the olive/pickle aisle. 

Ranch Seasoning – a packet of ranch seasoning adds the ranch flavor to this dip.

Garlic Powder and Paprika – to bump up the flavor.

  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup finely minced cherry peppers

Bacon Parmesan Pickle Chips

  • Turn a flat top griddle to low heat (or use a large skillet on the stove). Use a spoon to add grated parmesan in 2" circular piles.
  • Sprinkle on the bacon crumbles, and add a pickle into the center, pressing it down into the cheese. Add a light dusting of cajun seasoning on top.
  • Allow to cook until the underside is golden brown, about 4-5 minutes. Use a spatula to scrape up each parmesan crisp and set them on a plate. They will set firm as they cool. Serve with cherry pepper ranch on the side for dipping

Notes

Be sure to use parmesan that comes already grated. If you grate it from a wedge, it will be too gooey and will end up with a mess on the skillet. 
Shredded parmesan can be used instead of grated but they won't be as circular due to the stringy parmesan shreds.
