Southern Recipe Small Batch pork rinds
I like to think of these as elevated pork rinds. They come in really creative flavors like Blackberry Habanero, Korean Kimchhi Barbeque, and Spicy Dill –just to name a few.
They’re low carb, high protein keto-friendly snacks, full of flavor and can be enjoyed by themselves or with your favorite dips!
Tip: I paired them with a delicious Jalapeno Chicken Cheese Dip! All the folks in the studio loved it!
KEEP SCROLLING For the recipe!
McClure’s Pickles are the perfect pickle for any sandwich, snack or to enjoy by themselves.
My tip? Pair with a Bloody Mary! Mmmm
Raybern’s Premium Meats and Cheese Sandwiches
These delicious sandwiches come frozen. You just heat them up, and they taste amazing!
You can slice them into smaller tea party sized bites, add cute little toothpick flags (as a label and to hold them together) and you’ve got a great easy, appetizer for a crowd.
My flavor suggestion (as a Penn State alumni): Try the Philly Cheesesteak! Touchdown!
OMG! These are amazing! They’re super addictive! I’m glad I just got a small pack for the show because I could at a whole box. Sooo good!
They’re packed with protein, gluten-free, low carb and Keto-friendly.

The recipe I made on-air
Southern Recipe Small Batch’s Jalapeño Chicken Cheese Dip Served with Pork Rinds
As I mentioned on-air, there are 2 ways to make this recipe. Option 1 is with 2% Greek Yogurt. Option 2 is a bit more indulgent and uses cream cheese.
I’m a big fan of substituting healthier ingredients whenever possible, so I made mine with the Greek yogurt. Everyone at the TV station loved it!! In fact, I left it there so they could enjoy more if it on their break. They were all really impressed that it was so creamy.
The benefit to using the Greek Yogurt is that it’s low-fat and PACKED with protein and healthy nutrients. It’s also Keto-friendly if that’s something you require.
