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.”

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.

It’s the Winter Olympics … Pork Rind-Style

PorkRindOlympics-blog-v2 It's the Winter Olympics ... Pork Rind-Style

Watching the Olympics and getting a hankering to join in on the competition? We’ve put together a few games … but with a warm state twist. Who needs the snow when you’ve got good ‘ol southern ingenuity?

Luge
This one is a little tricky, please proceed with caution and with your safety in mind. Go down to your auto shop and borrow their mechanic’s creeper (this is the wheeled flat dolly that allows mechanics to do work underneath your vehicle). Take it to the highest hill and push off. Ride the two-man luge with only your best friend.

Curling
This is an easy one. Pull out a few round citronella Patio Torches (round is best), grab a broom, and you’re ready to go. For added excitement light the touches!

Biathlon
The Biathlon event is where you shoot at targets throughout a cross-country skiing course. This event is a little trickier because you’ll need to strap on 2 x 4’s to your work boots and maneuver through a gravel road while shooting at road signs. Come to think of it that may just be another Saturday night in the south.

Now you’ve won your gold medal, sit back, relax and watch the Winter Olympics with a bag of Southern Recipe Pork Rinds.

Let’s Give Thanks for Family

We’ve been around long enough to know that you don’t get between family and their traditions. And Thanksgiving traditions seem to be one of those holidays that takes no prisoners. In fact, for more than 60 years our family tradition has been to make the Thanksgiving dinner as pork rind friendly as possible!

You better not even think about making cornbread without Southern Recipe Cracklins, and the Thanksgiving stuffing better have Southern Recipe Pork Rinds mixed in or you just might have a fight on your hands.  Cracklin-Cornbread-150x150 Let’s Give Thanks for Family

Whether the holiday dinner is simple or grand, whether the gathering is small or huge, whether your football team wins or not … remember, it’s the company you keep that matters.
