Did you know October is National Pork Month? Hey, we love celebrating meat holidays … especially ones that are near and dear to our hearts. And there’s nothing nearer to pork than our crunchy pork rinds.
Pork Fact: eating pork dates to 1490 B.C. when China domesticated pigs. It’s not a far stretch to think that rinds were tried about that time as well.
In honor of “Pork-tober,” let’s double down on a recipe made especially for this month: Pork Rind Stuffed Pork Chop Bombs. Take stuffing made from Southern Recipe Pork Rinds, stuff it inside a pork chop and as an extra kick, use this recipe to bread the outside of the chop with – you guessed it – pork rinds! It’s a triple treat!

Bacon. For many, just saying the word bacon brings tears of joy. It’s no wonder there’s a special National Bacon Day (well, truth be told, every day could be “bacon day”).
From chocolate dipped bacon and Cheesy Bacon Popcorn to Bacon Banana Bread and Bacon Oatmeal, this crunchy treat can be eaten almost everywhere.
Almost. Try pulling it out of your pocket at a ball game on an 80-degree day.
That’s where we come in. Pork rinds give you that bacony flavor without all that greasy mess. And the mighty rind can be used in recipes just like our crispy cousin. Whether it’s our recipe for Pork Rind Breaded Pork Chops or a hearty BLT Dip recipe, rinds hold up just fine. Bacon can have one day, we’ll take all the rest of the days.

You wouldn’t believe the gunk that’s hiding in our go-to summer meals. Let’s lighten up as much as a sunshiny day and take better care of ourselves with these amazing pork rind swap outs.
Fried, but not chicken of rinds– Fried Chicken can be made healthier with a crust of pork rinds. Use this simple recipe as a starting point and you’ll find grease is just a word and doesn’t belong in your body.
Pies of Pizza!– This recipe takes the dough of America’s favorite call out meal and makes it a true wonder of better-for-you deliciousness. Gluten-free, reduced in calories, and packed full of protein, a pork rind pizza pie has a crunchy crust that delivers unique bacon flavor.
Chippy that’s Dippy- Make a difference to your nachos by dumping the tortilla chips and using pork rinds. You’ll find a lightness and crunch you didn’t have before, plus pork rinds can hold more of the good stuff! Here are some dip recipes we suggest making that will compliment our rinds wonderfully.
Slim down this summer with Southern Recipe. Check out our recipe and Pinterest page for more swap out ideas.

Mother’s Day is the third most popular holiday in the world, only topped by Christmas and Easter. You can go the normal route and send Mom flowers, but why not do something special for all the extraordinary things she’s done for you?
Give Me a Break: Being a Mom is a full-time job, and working Mom’s have it doubly hard. Why not give Mom a break by doing her chores for her- for the whole month? You can cook, clean, and wash with the best of them. She’ll appreciate that you took some of the burden off her shoulders (and Mom will enjoy the Southern Recipe pork rinds you include with every meal).
The Queen has Arrived: Two words mean more to any Mom than you can ever imagine- Spa Day! Pamper Mom and let her take a day for herself. Manicures, Pedicures and massages will do wonders for Mom. Smiles and self-esteem levels rise and so do kisses and hugs.
Beat the Clock: Really, there’s only one thing Mom’s want: time. They want you by their side. Sure, the phone and texting are there, but a surprise visit will make her heart grow bigger than when you brought home your second grade school picture with that toothy grin.
Cooking for Mom is easy too. Join us here for some great recipes that are a breeze to make and will have her thinking you sweat away in the kitchen just for her on her special day!

The best way to quiet your tears is with a beer and snack pairing guide that will help you forget the fact that your team missed the Sweet Sixteen.
Lager: Lagers are traditionally light and refreshing beers. If this is the brew you tend to reach for, grab a bag of Salt and Vinegar pork rinds! The tang of the salt and vinegar goes great with the crisp notes found in lagers.
Ale: Some Ales have notes that are a bit fruity and spicy. Turn up the heat and grab a bag of Hot and Spicy Southern Recipe Pork Rinds. The subtle heat found in the rinds will compliment the notes of spice found in your ale.
IPA: IPA’s tend to have a bitter and hoppy flavor. We suggest reaching for a smoky snack to go with this beer. There’s no better choice than our Bar-B-Q rinds!
This pairing guide not enough to get you over the madness? It’s alright, give one of these southern recipes a try and let some good home cooking do the trick.
March brings a lot of things and one of them is warm weather. We’re ready to break out of the stuffy indoors and into the fresh outdoor air. Come Spring, we just can’t wait to grab the tent and go camping.
We’ve gathered some most helpful tips from experience, and Greatist, to offer 3 major keys to a perfect camping trip.
The Right Pack: If you’re gonna be doing a bit of hiking on your trip, you’ll want to make sure you have a pack that’s light and won’t weigh you down. If your trip is only a few days long, your best bet is to pick up a 60-80 liter pack.
Catch some Z’s: All of that hiking and fishing is gonna wear you out, so it’s important to make sure you’ve got the proper sleeping bag and tent. You want a tent that is going to be weather resistant to, which means a “three-season” tent is your best bet of ensuring a good night’s sleep.
Fuel: All this activity is gonna require some serious fuel. Make sure you have portable and filling snacks on hand that will keep you full during your outdoor adventure. Southern Recipe Pork Rinds are protein-packed and will fire you up during your high-intensity trek!
With Southern Recipe in hand you can easily turn your next family camping trip into a memorable tradition
