Pork Roll Ups

Ingredients

  • 8 pork cutlets (or boneless chops pounded thin)
  • 8 breakfast sausage links
  • 1 egg, beaten with ½ cup of water
  • 1 cup crushed pork rinds
  • 8 oz tomato sauce (no sugar added for low carb)
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • ¾ cup shredded cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 F

Saute sausage until lightly browned. Place one sausage link on each pork cutlet and roll up, tucking ends of pork to make a pouch. Hold together with a toothpick. Dip in egg and roll in crushed pork rinds.

Chill thoroughly—at least an hour (this keeps them together, so don’t skip this step.)

Arrange in baking dish, cover with sauce, and sprinkle with cheese. Bake 1 hour at 325° F until done. (These can also be wrapped in foil and grilled, turning once.) Remove toothpicks before serving.

Makes 8 servings.

Rollo de Queso, Aguacate y Chicharron (Avocado, Cream Cheese and Cracklin Roll)

cook time: 15 minutes

prep time: 1.25 hours

servings: 12 to 16

Ingredients

  • ½ lb. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped white onion
  • 1 serrano chile, finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • sea salt to taste
  • 2 cups (2oz.) crushed chicharrones (cracklins)
  • Crackers of your choice

Directions

Place the cream cheese between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll to form a rectangle about 6 inches by 8 inches and ½ inch thick. Remove the top sheet.

Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop the flexh into a bowl. Mash until it is rather smooth, leaving some small chunks to add texture. Stir in cilantro, onion, chile, lime juice, and salt. Spread the avocado mixture evenly over the cream cheese. Using the bottom sheet of paper, roll up the cream cheese to form a log.

Coat the roll completely with the crushed chicharrones. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before serving with crackers.

The roll can be made in advance and refrigerated for 6–8 hours, then set out at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
