Chef Piggy Tail says, Enjoy our all natural smokey BBQ microwave pork rinds. Microwave pork rinds have less fat, less carbs, less calories, a higher fullness factor and more natural protein than many other snacks. Chef Piggy Tail's seasoning is all-natural, preservative free, gluten free and contains no MSG.
Unlike traditional pork rinds that are fried in lard, Chef Piggy Tail's microwave pork rinds are a healthier, low carb snack alternative. Each 1 ounce serving offers an incredible 9 grams of protein, 0 carbs, 33% less sodium, 65% less fat and 40 less calories than fried pork rinds – definitely a delicious and satisfying snack to “squeal” about.
Our serving size is 1/2 ounce (about 1/8 cup of pellets and about 1 cup when puffed).
To prepare, measure 1/4 cup of the microwave pork rinds onto a paper plate. Spread the pellets so they won't stack up on top of each other. Consider your first batch to be a test batch. This is because microwave ovens cook at different rates. Start with a time of 2 minutes. (In our 1100 watt microwave over, ¼ cup will puff up 2 cups in 90 seconds) If some of the pellets don't puff up all the way, or if a few burn, adjust the time up or down by ten or fifteen seconds. Microwave pork rinds do not make noise like popcorn as they puff up. When they finish cooking, remove from the microwave and allow to cool about 30 seconds to achieve that crunchy taste. If you pop up more than you can eat, keep them in a zip lock bag for later. The microwave pellets should not be refrigerated and may be stored for one year at room temperature.
