Eat This Not That: The Great Summer Swap Out

pork rinds half the calories and fat of chips

When it comes to your mind and body, summer is the perfect time to take stock where you are and where you want to go. Here are a few tips to get a jumpstart on the great summer swap out:

  1. Skip the chip. Pork rinds have half the calories and fat than potato chips. And an added bonus? Rinds are an easier scoop for your favorite dip.
  2. Swap out flour in pizza crust recipe with crushed pork rinds at a 1:1 ratio.
  3. Swap the greasy bacon on your burger with crushed pork rinds mixed inside the meat before grilling. You’ll still get a bacon flavor without the fat or calories.
  4. Swap out the riding lawnmower with a walk behind mower. In 30 minutes you’ll burn 150 calories (enough for a rewarding beer).
  5. Swap out the baseball game on TV with a game up close and personal at the local ballpark. You’ll get a dose of vitamin D from the sun, which is essential for maintaining healthy bones.

Hey, when it comes to versatility, flavor and crunch, pork rinds are champions of the great snack swap out.

What’s your favorite dog? Wait, let’s rephrase that … what is your favorite hot dog? Whether it’s Cincinnati-style, Italian or even just a plain dog with brown mustard – there are just as many hot dog recipes out there as there are states in the Union.

And in light of National Hot Dog Month, we’ve looked for the most unique and appealing city dog recipes across the land to share … along with their perfect Southern Recipe pork rind pairings (of course).

Baltimore – soft bun with fried bologna wrapped around a fried hot dog and mustard.

Cleveland – kielbasa in a bun (it’s technically not a hot dog, but we’re giving Cleveland a pass), french fries, hot sauce and cole slaw. Southern Recipe Salt & Vinegar Pork Rinds hit the mark … and then some.

Detroit – skin on hot dog in a soft bun, meat sauce, mustard and chopped onions. We know Southern Recipe Bar-B-Que Pork Rinds will give a tang to this coney dog.

Chicago – poppy seed bun, pickle spear, celery salt, tomatoes, pickled peppers, chopped onions, relish, and mustard. There’s a lot going on here, stay with a complementing flavor like Southern Recipe Original Pork Rinds.

Kansas City – sesame seed bun, sauerkraut and melted Swiss cheese. We recommend a little heat, try Southern Recipe Hot & Spicy to take it up a notch.

Memphis – bacon-wrapped hot dog in a bun, BBQ sauce, chopped scallions and shredded cheddar cheese. Southern Recipe Bar-B-Que Pork Rinds – they do love their “Que” down there.

Montreal – a steamed hot dog in a New England-style bun, mustard, chopped onion and cabbage. Southern Recipe Salt & Vinegar Pork Rinds play well with the cabbage.

New York – a hot dog in a bun, all-dressed with mustard, sauerkraut and onion sauce. Take your pick of any Southern Recipe Pork Rind flavors – hey, it’s New York after all.

Seattle – bratwurst, cream cheese, sliced raw jalapenos, chopped cabbage, and Sriracha. Pair with Southern Recipe Original pork rinds, no need for additional spice.
