Back to the Backwoods … Let’s Camp!

sr-june-blogs-2018-campfire-recipes Back to the Backwoods ... Let's Camp!

It’s time to celebrate National Camping Month and take a hike with the more than 40 million people that go out in the wilderness each year. We love everything about camping … the smell of the campfire, the musty smell of the tent and even when it rains it’s a perfect time to relax.

Campfires are great for ambiance and burning marshmallows for late night s’mores, but there’s nothing better than a meal cooked over an open fire. Be sure to bring a cast iron frying pan because we’ve got a few easy one-skillet recipes to make your outdoor experience an adventure.

  1. Campfire Tip: your recipes should be made with ingredients in easy-to-pack cans. Fully cooked meats, potatoes, and vegetables make it easy prep and cook over an open fire. You’re basically heating to warm your meal, not fully cooking your recipes.
  2. Skittle Enchiladas – Skip the tortillas and add Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds in its place.
  3. Loaded Skillet Cracklin Cornbread – So hearty you just may skip the main meal. Use Southern Recipe Bar-B-Que Curley Cracklins for a touch of heat.
  4. Three Cheese Mac & Cheese with Pork Rind Crust – When you crush pork rinds on top, it’ll give a bacon flavor without cooking greasy (and messy) bacon.
  5. Campfire Skillet Chili Mac – Macaroni. Chili. Cheese. Water. That’s it! Don’t forget the Southern Recipe Orginal Pork Rinds for a side of crunch.

The most important tip? In case of rain, you’ll need to pull out multiple bags of Southern Recipe Pork Rinds to stop your family from grumbling and stomachs from rumbling. Don’t worry; pork rinds have 8 grams of protein to help stave off “starvation.”

A Healthy Helping of Pork Rinds

sr-june-blogs-2018-healthy A Healthy Helping of Pork Rinds

Doesn’t it seem that every month we read about a new health trend?  Don’t get us wrong, we think that healthy eating starts with moderation (even though we also know it’s really hard not to plow through a big bag of Salt & Vinegar Pork Rinds during lunch). Pork rinds do offer some very positive health attributes

  • zero carbs,
  • 9 grams of protein (50 % more protein than peanuts)
  • only 4.5 grams of total fat (half the fat of potato chips)
  • Rinds are also a good alternative snack for those with diabetes
  • only 2 points for Weight Watchers

Whoa, all that “healthy talk” has gotten us hungry for some Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds. But really,  in honor of Men’s Health Month, we suggest cutting out all your empty snacks … and committing to eating pork rinds. Hey, we’re not crazy after all.

Pork Rinds … Our Heritage

sr-june-blogs-2018-heritage Pork Rinds ... Our Heritage

When John and Mary Rudolph founded our company in 1955, their vision was to make quality snacks that everyone could enjoy. And they knew it couldn’t be just any ordinary snack. It had to have the flavor that stood out from all other snacks. sr-june-blogs-2018-heritage Pork Rinds ... Our HeritageThey also knew that to be successful, they needed to make a snack for the working man … a full-flavored pork rind snack. Today, this “everyman’s snack” has grown to be an “everyone’s snack” and true to our heritage, quality and flavor still go into each bag of our pork rinds, cracklins and wheat snacks.

We’d like to invite you to something near and dear to our hearts (and stomachs), the Pork Rind Heritage Festival on June 8th and 9th just down the road from our home Office in Lima, Ohio. Join in on the fun … It’ll be a friendly place to relax, play and of course, eat the freshest pork rinds around.
