This Low Carb “Breading” mixes together in a flash and stays fresh in an air tight container in the fridge until you are ready to add it to some of your favorite main dishes. I’ve used it as a replacement for cracker crumbs and dried bread crumbs with a lot of success! In fact, friends and family like many of my main dishes that contain these crumbs more now than they did before!
I got the original idea for this breading from these crumbs which I still love and use, but they contain a seasoning mix that I wanted to separate out for dishes where I need more versatility.
Before I began dieting, as a lifestyle, a couple of years ago and started looking for low carb subs, I had really never even eaten pork rinds much and really wasn’t impressed with parmesan. I tried a breading containing these one time though, (see link above) and I was sold! I still only use it once or twice a month as I don’t favor the nutritional profile of these two, but they sure hit a spot that needs to be filled and help me be able to continue to serve up some of my down home favorites to rave reviews!
- 1 1/3 cup pork rinds (ground up in a mini food processor or blender, but left crumbly)
- 2/3 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
- Mix together and store in an airtight jar in the fridge between uses and it will keep for weeks.
