Serves: I got 90 puffs from this recipe
Carbs Per Serving: 16 grams total recipe
Prep Time: About 10 minutes prep, <1 hr baking
1 bag pork rinds, plain
1 c half & half
5 oz cheese*-cut up or grated
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp mustard powder**
How to Prepare:
Heat oven to 350.
In a food processor, grind the pork rinds. Add the eggs, onion, garlic and mustard powders and cheese. Blend well until cheese is broken down. Add the half & half. This will make a stiff, moist
Drop by small spoonfuls (about the size of a quarter) onto a lined and sprayed cookie sheet, approx 3/4″ apart. Bake until browned around edges and lightly browned on top, approx. 18 min. (You can
kick up the heat a little, just keep an eye on the first batch for a time)
*You can use any mixture of cheeses (NOT sliced sandwich cheese).
Sharp cheddar would give a stronger cheese flavor.
** You may also choose to add a few dashes of cayenne powder for an extra kick!
Hint: To control portion servings of chunk cheese, I cut the entire brick into slices before serving any of it (8 oz = 8 slices, 16 oz = 16 slices)
