    Cheesy Pork Rind Corn Cakes:

    • 1/4 cup Southern Recipe Original Pork Rinds, finely ground
    • 2 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 5 ears)
    • 3 large eggs
    • 3/4 cup milk
    • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted
    • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup yellow or white cornmeal
    • 1 (8-oz.) package fresh mozzarella cheese, grated
    • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives
    • 1 tsp salt
    • tsp freshly ground pepper


Pulse first 4 ingredients in a food processor 3 to 4 times or just until corn is coarsely chopped.

Stir together flour and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl; stir in corn mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Spoon 1/8 cup batter for each cake onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or large nonstick skillet to form 2-inch cakes (do not spread or flatten cakes).

Cook cakes 3 to 4 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Turn and cook other sides 2 to 3 minutes.
