Back to the Bacon chips: I drooled, but it appeared to be coated, he said, with Panko Bread Crumbs. A few too many carbs for me. :( Not to be deterred, I thought I could probably come up with a Low Carb Substitute. Victory in the name of, "Bacon" is mine! Bwahahaha!
Low Carb Parmesan Bacon Dippers with Chili Mayo Sauce
1/2 C ea. parmesan (2.03Carbs)
and finely crushed pork rinds:
Beat: two eggs in separate bowl
Cut: 7 strips thick cut bacon in 2 in. strips, and fry until almost crisp/slighty bendable.
Press:still warm (not hot) fried strips between paper towels and press to further flatten.
Let cool completely.
Reheat: bacon fat in skillet to med/high heat (watch for smoking or use another oil with a higher smoke temp.)
Dredge: cooked, cooled strips into egg then Parmesan/Pork Rind crumb mix
Fry: 3-5 pieces at a time about one minute, or until (peek underneath) that side is golden brown.
Flip and fry for several seconds as this side cooks faster.
Move: to paper towel to drain.
Optional: 1T Prepared Horseradish/Mayonnaise sauce (3 Carbs )
1/4 tsp chili powder 0.25 Carbs
1/2tsp paprika 0.5 Carbs
Mix and serve with bacon chips.
(If Horseradish Sauce is NOT used, add a dash of salt and extra chili powder to taste)
Total Carbs: 5.78
(Without Horseradish Sauce: 2.78 Carbs)
Servings? That is up to you. I ate it all, and it was very, very (Did I say, "Very?") Filling!
With a salad, this would serve 2
As an appetizer, this would serve 4
