Animal-Based Viral Cheese Fried Pickles

Some of you may know them as “chickles” or “pickles in a blanket”, but this viral trend I took to the next level with freshly shaved roast beef, brown butter ghee, raw cheese, raw refrigerator pickles, and the autoflower cultivar “cheese” infused animal-based raw ranch dipping sauce. Raw dairy is best from pasture raised dairy cattle that is local and close by to your home where the cows feed on grass. It makes raw dairy products so much tastier than commercial pasteurized dairy products. This viral trend has been seen all over the entire interweb from YouTube, to TikTok, Facebook, and Twitter. And it keeps spreading into every home! It went viral for a good reason, it is f’king delicious!

Animal-based eating doesn’t have to be restrictive or weird. It is about consciously eating more animal-based foods in each meal and when you do eat plants, to make sure they are less toxic. Cucumbers are a botanical fruit and are made up mostly of water. Making your own refrigerator pickles or canned pickles at home is simple, easy, and nutritious. Our family prefers simple refrigerator pickles because they are ready in 24 hours, and they are still in their raw state. Foods that are raw contain far more minerals and vitamins than their canned counterparts. Plus, they contain valuable biophotons from the sun which regulate our immune system.

The strain “Cheese Autoflower” is a beautiful plant that is Indica Dominant based that resulted from a cross of Critical Kush and Ruderalis. This cross was then mixed with Cheese genetics to produce plants that had very high yields. A cultivar that has won awards, it is a great plant to grow in your home garden for medicinal purposes that can help promote relaxation and ease muscle tension. And because it has a very strong pungent cheesy flavor it is an excellent flower to use in culinary applications. Enjoy these infused pickles as a quick snack or appetizer and don’t forget, you can make them unmedicated and they still will taste great!

  • Frying Pan
  • Ramekin
  • Serving Plate
  • Spatula
  • 4 Slices Raw Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 Raw Refrigerator Pickles
  • 2 tbsp Brown Butter Ghee
  • 4 slices Roast Beef (rare side)
  • 1/2 cup raw sour cream
  • 1 tbsp Ranch Seasoning
  • .16th gram Cheese Autoflower Kief
  • Pinch Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

Animal-Based Fried Cheesy Pickles

  1. Add the 2 tablespoons of brown butter ghee to the frying pan.

  2. Place 1 slice of raw cheddar cheese in the pan once the ghee is melted and spitting.

  3. Add 1 slice of roast beef on top of the cheese.

  4. Now, add 1 raw refrigerator pickle on top of the beef.

  5. Let the cheese bubble, melt, and brown to a nice brown color.

  6. Gently, fold the cheese over the pickle and continue to brown in the butter.

  7. Pull, when the fried pickle is dark brown and crisp on all sides. Drain on a paper towel or rack.

  8. Let the cheese set for 1 minute.

Animal-Based Cheese Autoflower Raw Ranch Dip

  1. Decarb your kief in the oven.

  2. In a ramekin, add the raw sour cream and ranch seasoning.

  3. Now, add the kief and mix well. Serve alongside your Animal-Based Fried Cheesy Pickles.


If a gram of Cheese Autoflower kief tests at 50 percent THC, then 500 mg of THC is present when decarbed properly. If you choose to use raw kief, then you are consuming THCA.

Therefore, substitute the number of your THC percentage and the amount of kief you have and do the math to figure out you’re dosing. If you want a smaller dose, cut the flower down to a smaller portion. For a larger dose, add in more.

Stain Pairing Suggestion:

When preparing this recipe, I would recommend pairing strains that possess cheese, cream, and sweet earthy terpenes and flavonoids. If you do not have access to this strain, then use your nose and taste buds to find other cultivar’s that have similar smell and flavor profiles.
