This nut free keto breading can be whipped up in 5 minutes and is incredibly versatile. It is perfect for breading chicken tenders, fried fish, chicken fried steak, or anything else you would want to bread and deep-fry or bake. It is also terrific as a binding agent for things like meatloaf or any other savory recipe that calls for breadcrumbs.
This recipe is from my book Craveable Keto . It has over 150 low carb, keto and gluten free recipes and over 100 pages of resources. It contains everything you need to find ease and success with keto.
Ingredients in Nut Free Keto Breading
- Pork Rinds - The measurement in the recipe is for crushed pork rinds. You can buy pork rinds and pulse them in your food processor, or you can buy them already crushed. (This is the brand I use)
- Parmesan Cheese - I used a finely grated parmesan cheese. If you want to keep this recipe dairy free, you can substitute extra pork rinds, or blanched almond flour.
- Salt - If you are using salted pork rinds, I recommend omitting the salt in the breading.
- Seasonings - I add garlic powder, onion powder, and dried Italian seasoning to amp up the flavor. If you are breading a food that is already very flavorful, you can omit the extra seasonings.
