I love fried pickles, but don’t always want to make them; this easy baked dill pickle dip has all the tangy, crisp flavor of my favorite appetizer but with the bonus of hot, melted cheese, oh and no frying!
One of my all-time favorite appetizers to order at any restaurant are fried pickles. Tangy dill pickles are breaded and then deep-fried until golden brown. Something about the hot dill pickles and that crunchy coating makes me go nuts!
Since I try to avoid frying foods too often, I had to come up with a baked version. Oven-Baked Pickles Chips are AMAZING! But even the baked version can take some time to prepare.
So, once again, I was left to brainstorm ways to enjoy my favorite appetizer without having to put forth much effort.
How To Make This Easy Dill Pickle Dip?
STEP ONE – Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a small baking dish or ramekin with non-stick spray, set aside.
STEP TWO – In the bowl of a food processor combine cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, mayo, garlic, and pickles. Pulse just until combined. Pour cheese onto the prepared dish.
STEP THREE – Toss together bread crumbs and Panko bread crumbs, sprinkle over the dip. Drizzle melted butter over bread crumbs and bake for 15 minutes, or until hot and bubbly and breading turns golden brown.
What To Serve With Dill Pickle Dip
You can serve almost anything with this creamy dip!
Some of my favorite options are:
- Toasted Bread Rounds
- Pita Chips
- Thick Cut Potato Chips
- Sliced Fresh Veggies
How Long Does This Baked Dill Pickle Dip Last?
Since this is a cheese based dip, it should not be kept out for more than a couple of hours.
This dip can easily be reheated in the microwae or the oven. You can store any leftovers for up to two days.
I used dill pickle chips for this recipe that I then coarsely chopped. You can use a bread and butter style pickle, but the flavor would not be the same.
Feel free to add more cheese to this recipe. A handful of Monterey Jack cheese (pepper Jack too) or even white cheddar would taste amazing!
Add fresh herbs to this dip if you really want a kick! Fresh dill would really make this dip taste outstanding!
Watch your dip carefully when it is in the oven, the buttery topping can brown or burn quite easily. Ritz cracker crumb can easily replace the panko in this recipe.
Toss anyleftovers with hot pasta for pickly alfredo sauce, use it as a sandwich spread for an elevated grilled cheese or even use it as a sauce for chicken breast!
This baked pickle dip will delight pickle lovers; even non-pickle lovers cannot resist this creamy, tangy dip! This is a great appetizer for any occasion and I find it is alawys one of the first to go!
