Baked Paleo Zucchini Chips

Baked Paleo Zucchini Chips

SNACK TIME! A.k.a. my favorite time!

During our last giveaway we gave two lucky winners each a bag of Bacon’s Heir pork clouds. Aaand that’s exactly what they are – delicious, light, airy, crispy, clouds of pork rind goodness. I can safely say they are the best pork rinds I’ve ever had. That’s a big deal considering pork rinds are my JAM.

When I received the pork clouds, I also received a big ‘ole bag of Pork Dust. Pork DUST you say? Yes. Pork Dust. Crispy, crumbly, crunchy, smashed-up remains of Bacon’s Heir Pork Clouds. A.k.a. an amazing, savory, breadcrumb alternative. So delish!

As per usual, I had some sort of vegetable going bad in the fridge. #procrastinatorsUNITE! Today, the lucky winner, or not so lucky considering said winner would be meeting their vegetable-death, was, {drumroll, please…} ZUCCHINI!

So sorry Zucchini-my-dude, but, today you meet your (second?) death and you get into my belly. I dredged some thinly sliced zucchini in pork dust and baked until crisp! Easy peasy Japanesey! (I’m allowed to say that, I’m Asian, okay.)

Once these chips cool down & crisp up, simply devour the entire tray and thank me later. Enjoy!

    Ohhh my gosh girls. I’ve gotta get my hands on some of that pork dust. The pork clouds were SO FREAKING DELICIOUS!! Also, random blogging question – how do you get affiliate links in your recipe/which recipe plugin do you use? I love that format!

      Yay, so glad you loved them! We get the affiliate links from whoever we’re partnered with. i.e. Amazon, Kasandrinos, Tropical Traditions, etc. and I JUST updated to a new recipe plugin. I was using ZipList before, but, they aren’t putting out any more updates, so, I now use EasyRecipe Plus (the paid-for version).

      Yes, you do, girlfran!!!! But, you can always make your own, too, with a bag of store-bought pork rinds (and a mallet or something to smash them). :)
