Can I make bacon wrapped pickles in the oven?

Yes, you can place the pickles on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes on 350 until bacon is crispy.

These are best enjoyed fresh and hot! If you choose to save the leftovers, you will want to store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 days. 

Storage

To reheat, I would warm these back up in the air fryer for about 3-4 minutes or until hot.
