Pork Rind Onion Rings– sounds a little odd right? This onion ring recipe was the very first time I tried out cooking with pork rinds. For those of you who don’t know, pork rinds are fried pig skin with a bit of seasoning. It tastes just like bacon grease, has oodles of fat, comes with a lot of flavors and it Keto-approved!

Cost at a Glance for the Onion Rings

Most of this recipe has a low base cost because onions are not too pricey, coconut flour is bough in bulk at a natural grocery store, and pork rinds were less than $2! I estimate this recipe to cost less than $5 for 4 servings!

This Pork Rind Onion Rings is originally inspired by Recipe #583 in The Complete Keto Diet Cookbook For Beginners: 1000 Quick & Easy Recipes For Busy People On The Ketogenic Diet With 21-Day Meal Plan by Lillian Cook. I received this cookbook in a collaboration with Cooking Hacks Daily on Instagram.

The Complete Keto Diet Cookbook For Beginners: 1000 Quick & Easy Recipes For Busy People On The Ketogenic Diet With 21-Day Meal Plan by Lillian Cook is quite interesting in that there really are 1,000 recipes, a 21-day Meal Plan and the recipes are all very quick. Autumn Butternut Squash Stew should only take about 35 minutes.

The most interesting feature is that these recipes are quickly condensed in the pages of the cookbook. There are typically 6 recipes on each page. There is no wasted space, no images of the recipes, and there are quick nutrition facts regarding macronutrients and calorie in-take per serving. There are 10 grams of carbs per serving in each recipe, or fewer.

The 21-Day Meal Plan is laid out as a guideline and rather than list the page numbers associated with the recipes listed in the meal plan, the recipes are given their numbers for you to look up later. I have spent time sifting through the recipes and I am optimistic about my future experience with this cookbook.
