What Are Cheesy Pickles?
Cheesy Pickles are a popular snack in the Southern United States. They’re typically made with store-bought dill pickles and cheddar cheese.
One thing I learned along the way is that it’s important to drain the pickles well before placing them in an air fryer basket or tray. They are great, and you can even make a sandwich, add some lunchmeat in between them! Oh, so good!
Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer KETO Cheesy Pickles
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Dill Pickle Chips
How To Make Air Fryer KETO Cheesy Pickles
Line your air fryer basket with parchment paper. Set a few pieces of paper towel on a plate, and add pickles in a single layer. Blot pickles dry with more paper towels.
Arrange circles of shredded cheese, about the size of the pickles, to the parchment paper, a few inches apart.
Top cheese with a pickle. Add more cheese on top of the pickles. Set into the air fry for 3 to 5 minutes at 350 degrees F, air fryer setting, or until cheese is your desired doneness.
What Is A Chaffle?
Chaffles are relatively new, and they are very popular in the KETO and low-carb communities. There are thousands of recipes for them, as they replace bread.
You can use them to replace bread, add your fillings, or use them as a substitute cracker for dipping!
What kind of pickles are best for fried pickle chips?
What kind of pickles are best for fried pickle chips? At first glance, this might not seem like a difficult question. After all, most people think that any old dill or bread and butter variety will do the trick.
However, there is more to it than meets the eye: if you want your fried pickles to be crispy and delicious (and not soggy), then you need to use a thin-skinned cucumber type such as “Kirby” or “Cucumber Slims.” These varieties have less juice and fewer seeds which means they don’t break down when deep-fried in the air fryer.
What’s the best dip for fried pickles?
It’s always difficult to find the perfect dip for fried pickles. You want something tangy and sweet but not too creamy or spicy. The best dipping sauce for fried pickles is Ranch dressing! This classic American ranch dressing has just the right amount of sweetness and tanginess to compliment your favorite appetizer.
