Add a Little Cold Weather Crunch


We’re just about ready to celebrate every green blade of grass on the baseball diamond. If the cold weather is getting to you, here’s one crunchy rind remedy that you’ll want to hold onto: Pork Roll Ups.
 
Between the stick-to-your-ribs pork cutlets and the savory taste of Rudolph’s Pork Rinds, this low-carb main dish will make your mouth water. Did we mention that there’s sausage too? Ok, now we bet your mouth is watering! See you on the ball field!

 

Attack the Snack Food Month

February is National Snack Food Month! And yes, you got it … we’re ALL about that! We’re going to take full advantage each day by celebrating all of the pork rind snacking benefits!

Pork rinds. All day. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack.

 

Did you know that pork rinds are paleo-friendly? That’s right, eating like a caveman has never been easier. Each salty, crisp bite of rind heaven is packed full of protein. Rudolph’s Pork skins have zero carbs, giving them a low glycemic index, and only 5 g of fat per serving, over half of that fat is “good fat”.

You’ll never be satisfied with that greasy bag of potato chips again. Whether you’re craving Rudolph’s Original Flavored Pork Rinds, zesty Hot & Spicy flavor, or even whipping up Rudolph’s Chicharrones Quesadillas for the next basketball game, there’s always a snack celebration to make your February epic!

A Big Crunchy Snack for the Big Game

Unless you’re planning on heading to Arizona for the Super Bowl this year, it looks like you might be spending it on your couch. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with that! As a matter of fact, there are a few benefits to homegating for the Big Game:

1. You can watch the game pants-less. Would the University of Phoenix Stadium let you do the same?

2. You can create an awesome game day menu that rivals any of the food vendors you might see at the stadium (but we do recommend putting your pants back on while you cook).

A little (and easy) preparation goes a long way. Start with Rudolph’s Cheese Bites covered in crushed pork rinds! Follow that up with some easy Beefy Rudolph’s Pork Rind Burgers and some Rudolph’s Peanut Butter Pork Rind Bars and you’re in a pork rind lover’s paradise.
 
 

 
 

Like Pork Rinds … Dove Hunting
is a Family Affair

 
This year marks the 50th year that my dad and I have gone dove hunting. And believe me when I say it was just as special this year … as ever.
 
RudolphFoods-DoveHuntingAndPorkRinds

There is no way to explain just how important the opening day of dove hunting season is in Texas – and the opening day of our 50th year hunting together was no exception. For me, it’s about family more so than the actual sport of hunting.
 
Nostalgia hits me every time I see the sun come up over the trees. And the frost … The frost on that Texas grass really is something of an oxymoron, as it happens on just a handful of days throughout the year. At 80 years old, my dad loves reminiscing and bonding with Sarah, my youngest daughter. There aren’t too many opportunities like that anymore so I really take advantage of times like those.
 
It makes me feel lucky to a part of a close-knit Texan family — with such amazing girls that care so deeply about each other and our whole family. How do pork rinds fit into all of this? We are Texas. Rudolph’s and Southern Recipe are at every hunting season, table, cookout and get together. Now it’s your turn. Tell us how you spend time with your pork rind lovin’ family …
