Pigs in a Pigskin

It's funny that one of the monikers for a football is a pigskin, when pork rinds have nothing to do with it. So, just for fun, we decided to put some piggies in pigskin (instead of a blanket, which makes no sense either).

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Open the can of sausages and strain out the gooey, fatty substance they've been sitting in. Cook the sausages in a medium skillet over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes. While that's going, crush the tortilla chips into crumbs with a food processor or a mortar and pestle. 
  2. Pork rinds have different natural shapes, but there are always the ones that curl inward, forming the perfect vessel for a "piggie" to reside in. Find six of those, and place a sausage in each. Garnish with the tortilla crumbs.
