So I'm about 3 weeks into a 1-month paleo-challenge and I'm really loving things. I feel great and I've lost several pounds (which was unintended, but I guess it's fine). One thing I do miss, however, is bread. In all forms--sandwiches, tortillas, pitas, pizzas... the list goes on. The other night I was experimenting with different breading options for fried okra and zucchini (from my garden) and stumbled upon crushed pork rinds. They worked fabulously and got me wondering about what else I could do with 'pork flour'. Last night I figured it out:
2 eggs 1 1/3-1/2 cups of pork flour (roughly half a 3oz bag, finely crushed) 1/4 cup almond/coconut milk 1/4 tsp baking powder
Whisk the eggs with the milk and baking powder, then add the flour. let stand for ~2-5 mins, until it thickens. Scoop half of the mixture into a greased (I used olive oil) skillet, over medium heat. You'll have to spread it out with a fork/spoon to get the shape you want. Cook like a pancake, and flip once the bottom is browned and/or bubbles persist in the uncooked side.
The result has a texture similar to an English muffin, is flexible, seems to hold up well in a refrigerator/reheat well, and has a mild pork flavor to it. IMO very (flat) bread like. If I'm calculating it correctly, 1 carb, 42g protein, 25g fat.
I'm interested to see what everyone here thinks of this. Any faults that I'm over-looking?
