Ingredients: 1 bag pork rinds, plain
2 eggs
1 c half & half
5 oz cheese*-cut up or grated
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp mustard powder**
How To Prepare: Heat oven to 350.
In a food processor, grind the pork rinds. Add the eggs, onion, garlic and mustard powders and cheese. Blend well until cheese is broken down. Add the half & half. This will make a stiff, moist dough.

Drop by small spoonfuls (about the size of a quarter) onto a lined and sprayed cookie sheet, approx 3/4" apart. Bake until browned around edges and lightly browned on top, approx. 18 min. (You can kick up the heat a little, just keep an eye on the first batch for a time)

*You can use any mixture of cheeses (NOT sliced sandwich cheese). Sharp cheddar would give a stronger cheese flavor.

** You may also choose to add a few dashes of cayenne powder for an extra kick!

Hint: To control portion servings of chunk cheese, I cut the entire brick into slices before serving any of it (8oz=8 slices, 16oz=16 slices)
Number of Servings: I got 90 puffs from this recipe
Carbs per serving - include all nutritional information if known: 16 grams total recipe
Preparation Time: About 10 minutes prep, <1 hr baking
Effort (Easy, Average, Difficult): Easy

These really tasted like cheese puffs. I liked them alot. Added the sausage as another version of this recipe shows and defiately added a nice flavor.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): easy to make
Cons: missing a little flavor

I made this recipe for a party on Sunday and everyone (except for me!) loved them. The only reason I didn't care for them was the whole stigma I have in my brain about pork rinds... yuck.

About half was through the batch, someone suggested that I add some pepperoni and jalepenos, which really gave them a ton more flavor. They are super easy to make and are great as a really lo-carb snack.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): It was good
Cons: Did not taste like traditional Cheese Puffs to me... tasted more like corn bread... a little bland but next batch will add salt and maybe that will help

Would make a good cornbread substitute.... I am also going to play with the recipe some and maybe add chilis or some flavored salt or possible some ranch dressing.... I also think I could sit down with a thing of butter and just dip them in the butter...
