Fried Jicama Chips Serves:One
CarbsPerServing:6 Prep Time:10 minutes or less
1/2 of a medium Jicama
Seasonings of choicePeanut Oil (or other oil suitable for high heat
How to Prepare:
Peel and rinse 1/2 of one globe of jicama. Slice paper thin, using
one of those “as seen on TV” type vegetable slicers if you can. They
give you the thinnest slices. Otherwise use a very sharp knife and
slice carefully and thinly. Blot excess moisture from slices.
Use enough oil to cover bottom of large skillet and to cover the
slices, about 1/4″ deep should do it. Heat oil, but do NOT OVERHEAT.
Add jicama slices in a single layer. You won’t get them all done in
one batch. Fry each batch until you have browning around the edges,
then remove to paper towels to drain while the next batch frys.
The chips shrink considerably. While still warm sprinkle them with
pepper, salt, low carb seasonings, parmesan cheese, whatever you
like, but lightly.
If you make the slices thin enough and fry carefully these chips
come out so delicate and crunchy. Really too delicate for dipping
unless you just use a thin Ranch dip or something.

Remove seed from peppers, chop all ingredients into very small

intense, but if you like it hot try more pepper or jalapeno.

1 package carbolite bread mix

ingredients to make bread)40 little smokie sausages
40 strips cheese approx 1″ long by 1/4″ wide
40 strips thin jalapeno 1″ long by 1/4″ wide(optional)
How to Prepare:
Make bread in bread dough according to package directions either by
hand or in bread machine. As soon as it’s done mixing, remove and
put in an oiled bowl and let rest for 20 minutes. Cut dough into 4
equal pieces, working with 1 at a time and keeping the others
covered to keep from drying out. Cut dough section into 10 pieces
and flatten with the heel of your hand until it’s about 2″x2″
square. Place a little smokie, a cheese strip and a jalapeno strip
(if using) in the center and roll the dough around it, pinching the
seams to seal (dampen your fingers with water if needed). Place seam
side down on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with butter
flavored cooking spray. Once all the pigs are made, spray the tops
with the cooking spray and place in a warm, draft free place (like
an oven) to rise for 1 hour. If you notice any coming apart, pinch
the seams again or else the cheese will run out as they bake.
Preheat oven to 350f. Bake pigs until golden brown. Makes 40
appetizer pigs. Serve with assorted dipping sauces.
