We hacked the popular Dot’s recipe to make just-as-addicting seasoned keto pork rinds!
Make seasoned pork rind snacks that taste like Dot’s seasoned snacks!
Ever heard of the buttery Dot’s seasoned pretzels? 🥨 They are so delicious but unfortunately so not keto-friendly! The brand released Dot’s seasoned pork rinds to cater to keto and low-carb eaters, however, they’re hard to find in the stores. Even if you do spot them, they still run about $6 at the grocery store. 👎 🙅♀️
We’ve come up with an easy way to create a similar snack so you can have freshly seasoned pork rinds for less! If that’s not convincing enough, my Hip teammate Emily says they’re even better than the store-bought pork rinds, too.😉
All you need is a sheet pan, a bag of plain pork rinds, and a stocked spice cabinet. ✅
By baking plain pork rinds with butter and bold seasonings, you can make an easy and flavor-bursting keto version of Dot’s seasoned pork rinds at home! I love that these are kind of spicy with cayenne pepper and yet tangy with lemon pepper. There are also garlic and onion flavors that pair so well with a crunchy pork rind. You’ll understand the hype around these pretzels after your first bite.

Tips for making keto copycat Dot’s pork rinds:
- This idea can be made to taste. If there is a spice that doesn’t sound pleasing or if you don’t like spicy, then dial back the cayenne pepper.
- Let’s talk about salt. 🧂 I did not add any additional salt because my pork rinds were plain, but already well-salted. If yours need salt, add some to the seasoning blend as desired.
- Any leftovers can be ground up using a food processor to use like bread crumbs! You could utilize them in keto recipes such as in meatloaf, chicken tenders, and pork rind pizza!
I love the idea of jazzing up pork rinds for lots of added flavor!
This was so easy to accomplish and is such a tasty keto snack. You can totally make them your own by adding other desired spices too. I also love that you can crush them up to use for future keto recipes like bread crumbs.
Check out what my teammate Emily had to say after making this recipe:
“These are better than the original Dot’s Pork Rinds. I tried them side-by-side and prefer the copycat recipe! The fresh seasoning tastes so good, I couldn’t stop eating them. Highly recommended making your own seasoning over buying the name brand!”
Bake some sugar-free roasted almonds as another sheet pan keto snack idea!
Thank you so much posting this. I was making something similar but the pork rinds got all soaked with the butter and I wasn’t sure how to crisp them back up again. It never occurred to me to bake them! I will try your seasoning mixture as it looks better than mine.
YAY! You’re welcome, Kathy! Glad this deal popped up just in time! 🙌❤️
