The Healthiness of Pork Rinds

While pork rinds can be part of a balanced diet, moderation is key. They offer a good source of protein and healthy fats and can be enjoyed as a snack. However, it’s important to be mindful of portion sizes due to their high sodium and saturated fat content. Consider incorporating other nutritious snacks into your diet whenever possible.

They can easily replace breadcrumbs in various dishes, make a delicious substitute for fried chicken, or add an extra crunch to your fathead dough creations.

The Birth of Cinnamon Keto Pork Rinds

Let us share the story behind our cinnamon-flavored pork rinds. It all began when we accidentally made a batch of plain pork rinds. Realizing they had no taste, we decided they needed a little something extra. With a craving for something sweet, we rolled the warm pork rinds in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. The result? An incredible snack that resembled churros in taste and appearance. And so, our recipe was born.

Cooking Pork Skin

  1. Third Step: Clean and Cut
    Once cooked, let the skin dry and cool. Scrape off any excess fat with a sharp knife and cut it into the desired shape. Long strips can create a churro-like look.

Cutting Cooked Skin

  1. Fourth Step: Dehydrate
    Place the cleaned and cut skin onto a dehydrator sheet. Dehydrate for approximately eight hours or until fully dried. Rotate the trays occasionally for even dehydration.

Dehydrating Pork Rinds

  1. Fifth Step: Collect
    Once dehydrated, collect the pork rinds and store them in a jar or bowl for later use.

Collecting Pork Rinds

  1. Sixth Step: Deep Fry
    Heat oil in a cooking pot for deep frying. Submerge the dried pork rinds one by one, using tongs to prevent twisting. For a churro-like appearance, hold each end with tongs during frying.

Deep Frying Pork Rinds

  1. Seventh Step: Coat
    While the churros are still warm, coat them with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Prepare a glass container and coat each pork rind individually in the sweet mixture.

Tips and Tricks
