Wonderfully crispy and flavorful bacon chips are perfect for scooping up guacamole, salsa or sour cream. Great on game day, or anytime you crave something crunchy on the keto diet!
Many people complain that they miss crunchy snacks on the keto diet. I was one of them, until I discovered that there are actually MANY options when it comes to crispy and crunchy keto snacks.
These amazing bacon chips are one of those snacks that help you stop feeling as though you’re missing out on something by being on a low carb or keto diet. They are incredibly tasty, and they are also VERY easy to make.
The ingredients you’ll need
You’ll only need ONE ingredient to make this tasty keto snack! A package of bacon! 🥓 It’s best to choose medium-thickness strips, not very thin and not very thick.
How to make bacon chips
It’s so easy! Scroll down to the recipe card for the full instructions. Here are the basic steps:
You start by cutting each slice of bacon into three pieces.
Next, you arrange the pieces on a rimmed parchment-lined baking sheet.
Then bake them until crispy. This should take 15-20 minutes in a 400 degree F oven. That’s it! I told you this was easy!
Isn’t bacon unhealthy?
How to serve them
Serve them as you would serve any other chips, with your choice of dip. Guacamole is an excellent choice because it’s very healthy. Other options include salsa, ranch dip, and sour cream or Greek yogurt dip.
How to store them?
After they’re completely cool, I store bacon chips in a Ziploc bag in the fridge. They should last for about five days, but they never last that long in my house!
You don’t even need to heat them, by the way. Cold bacon is surprisingly delicious. But if you’d like to reheat them, place them on a plate lined with a paper towel, cover with another paper towel, and microwave in 30-second increments.
