Bacon Cheeseburger & Fried Pickles

I LOVE fried pickles and am so happy we can have them again! Paired with a bacon cheeseburger on cheesy buns. These are very low carb, less than 1 net for *10* pickles.

In a separate bowl whip egg and cream together.
Drop all pickles into egg mixture and remove one with a fork.
Place pickle on pile of pork rinds mixture and sprinkle more mixture on the top until you can’t see the pickle. Press the pork rinds onto the pickle to make it stick to both sides.
