A few months ago I used crushed pork rinds to crust pork tenderloin instead of using panko or regular breadcrumbs. This is a very similar idea (but using a different part of the pig!) and makes a super tasty low carb snack.
Then set up a dipping and coating station. Bacon, a large beaten egg, and then the pork rind crumbs. Dip the bacon in the egg, then in the pork rinds. I usually cook six rashers of bacon at a time for this recipe.
Place on a non-stick baking rack. You could either broil the bacon or roast the bacon. I’ve tried both and broiling is faster but is harder to keep the pork rinds from burning while waiting for the bacon to get crispy. Roasting makes it easier to balance the crust with the bacon, but takes longer!
Either way, you’ll end up with a crunchy crusted bacon. You might need to try it several times to get the crispiness of the bacon to your liking. But hey, it’s not exactly a hardship to keep trying this recipe as the bacon tastes great whatever!Pork Rind Crusted Bacon - a tasty and crunchy #zerocarb snack! #lowcarb Click To Tweet
