Charring the baby gem adds so much flavour to the salad, and we think the crackling is a much better substitution for your run-of-the-mill crouton! This is a great low-carb recipe.
Our fishcakes are a nod to the local chippy: cod, salt and vinegar chips and mushy peas all wrapped up in an easy to make fishcake! These also work well as a mid-week meal.
The crackling in this classic dish adds a delicious crunch and rich flavour. Let the mixture cool slightly before topping the bread, to make it easier to use.
Bacon brownies have become a bit of a thing, and so we thought, why not try some with crackling? And we think the sweet salty combo in these ultra-rich brownies really works. If you’re a bit scared of the idea of crackling in brownies, then just scatter less of it over the top.
The pork crackling adds a welcome saltiness to this rich sweet pud, the perfect balance we think. For extra indulgence, we've added rum to our sauce, but of course this is optional.
Comfort food heaven; the fish finger sandwich has had a gourmet update in recent years and is often found on the menu of gastro pubs. We think lemon sole works best to give a really soft flakey fish finger, and a good white loaf is a must.
This is a very easy bread, without the need for kneading or rising, and is similar in texture to soda bread. You can make it with half wholegrain flour if you like, but it will be a little denser.
We couldn't not include this pub favourite. Although they are time-consuming to make, they are well worth it, and you can really taste the pork crackling in the coating.
We thought it was only fitting that we let you into a little secret of how to make damn awesome pork crackling at home, as it's very hard to beat freshly cooked, still warm porky goodness. Granted, it's a bit of a faff to do when you just fancy a quick snaffle (although these will keep for a few days in an airtight container), but hey, that's where we come in.
This comfort dish is full of robust Italian flavour and makes a great alternative to a lasagne. The crackling adds tons of meaty flavour and moisture to the meatballs. To reduce the carb content in this dish; choose a good-quality passata without added sugar. Whilst it is a low-ish carb recipe, reducing the quantity of cheese will make it even lower.
The summery Spanish dish is spiced with Habanero pork crackling but if you're not keen on spice, why not try using the BBQ flavour instead? You can use any firm white fish you like for this dish.
The crackling seasons these chips and makes them extra cruncy. They are delicious with a fried egg and a thick slice of ham for a quick dinner.
The crackling in this pie just adds a subtle saltiness to its sticky sweetness. We love this American classic and wonder why crackling hasn't been added before!? Make sure to use proper maple syrup for maximum flavour.
We've added bacon and beer to our mac and cheese - this had to be the ultimate comfort dinner! You can use whichever crackling you like to top it, but we think BBQ is a winner.
Perfect as a snack with beer, or stuffed inside a burger. These can even be reheated in an oven if they don't all get snaffled at once - unlikey though!
