Instructions
  1. Crush the pork rinds in a food processor and set aside 30g for the filling. Remove any big pieces.
  2. Pour olive oil into a small pot and and heat on high. When it starts to smoke, turn it down (If using gas, turn down to low. If using electric, turn down to medium low). Be careful!
  3. Chop the Prosciutto slices on a cutting board into small squares. Make sure to remove the strip of skin on the outside, if it’s there.
  4. Combine the cream cheese, 30g of the pork rinds, shredded cheese, roasted peppers, xanthan gum, onion powder, and Prosciutto in a bowl. (Note, this picture shows only 4oz of cream cheese).
  5. Using your clean hands, thoroughly mix the “dough” until completely combined. Wrap it in plastic wrap and pop it in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove dough from freezer. Pull off about 1 oz of it, roll it into a ball with your hands, then roll it out in a little sausage shape. Repeat with remaining dough.
  7. When your oil is ready to fry, roll each croquette in the remaining pork rinds and push the “breading” well into the croquette so it won’t come off in cooking.
  8. Fry the croquettes one at a time. Using a slotted spoon, carefully drop a croquette in the oil and let fry for 10-15 seconds. If it comes out too dark or cooks too fast, your oil may be too hot. Repeat for each croquette, removing excess breading from the oil in between each one. Serve immediately.
