Questions and Answers – Cracklin Bread
I have read about “cracklin’ bread” in books, have even found recipes. However, they all call for “cracklins.” What is it and where do you find it?
Cracklings are bits of roasted or deep-fried pork rinds or skins. Pork rind is the crisp, fatty skin or rind of a roast pig. You can either make your own or you may be able to find them at small Mom and Pop groceries, especially in the Southern States. This bread is basically a traditional southern cornbread with bits of pork skins in it.
If you can not find these pork rinds, you may substitute crumbled fried bacon.
