Use of Pork Rinds Recipes

Ingredients:
3 oz or 80 gram = 1 cup of pork rind flour or pork rind bread crumbs

Bread crumbs

Crumble pork rinds until they resemble bread crumbs. You can use a food processor, or crush with a rolling pin in a zippered bag.

Flour

Using a blender or food processor, grind pork rinds into a fine flour or brown sugar-like substance by placing one pork rind at a time in blender or food processor and grinding it.

Toppings Recipes using Pork Rinds

Use pork skins for breading since they are light and puffy.

For baking or broiling just roll the meat in the crumbs.

For a casserole topping just sprinkle on top of the dish you are preparing.

Spicey Breading

1 – 6 ounce bag of Pork rinds
2 tablespoon Mrs Dash Seasoning Blend (no salt) = one tablespoon per cup of crumbs

Process pork rinds in food processor (or crush with a rolling pin in a zippered bag). If processed, pour into plastic zipper bag. Add 2 tablespoon Mrs Dash (or your favorite seasoning to taste). Shake bag to distribute seasoning.

Note: If you wish to make a large batch, 5 bags of pork rinds, processed, uses one entire bottle of Mrs. Dash (roughly 8 Tbsp).

Use with chicken, fish, shrimp, mozzarella sticks or other items which take to breading.
