Top Hat Cricket Farm recently rolled out an interesting new product: bulk frozen crickets! These crickets aren’t just for your pets, they can make a tasty snack for yourself, as well. Now, before you hit the back button, you should know that people in countries around the world, from Thailand and Australia to Brazil and the good old United States have enjoyed eating insects for years. In fact, this growing trend has a lot of support, not only because it is environmentally friendly but because crickets are nutritional, affordable and delicious! In this post, we’re going to look at a few ways that you can turn bulk frozen crickets into a meal fit for a king.

Sautéed crickets

A favorite of those with more discerning tastes, crickets can be sautéed in garlic, olive oil and salt to complement their nutty, light flavor. The trick is in the timing: just as the crickets start to brown and become crunchy, add your garlic. The resulting mixture can be added to guacamole, omelets or anywhere that you would normally use ground beef.

Ground crickets

If your biggest objection to eating crickets is their appearance, grinding them up may be the best option for you. Roasted crickets can be ground into a fine powder that can be used as a substitute for flour or added to nutritional smoothies.

Baked crickets

If you’re a fan of beef jerky, oven baked crickets are sure to appeal to you. With a little salt and olive oil, baked crickets are a great addition to standard trail mix, popcorn and salads. Additionally, you can add herbs and spices during the baking process to create the perfect on-the-go snack food.

At Top Hat Cricket Farm, we’re always looking for interesting ways to expand our product line. With the addition of bulk frozen crickets, we’re glad to have successfully bridged the gap between pet food and snack food.
