I don’t know if you can actually call this a “recipe.”
It’s a mixture of three different ingredients that form a perfect keto breading. It holds up to baking and frying. It’s inexpensive and lasts forever.
(Yes, I have used crushed pork rinds, and I don’t care for them).
Are you ready for this?
- 3T parmesan cheese
- 2T golden flaxseed meal
- 1T almond flour
Yes, that is it.
Measure out your ingredients in a bowl. Add whatever seasoning you’d like – I usually throw in some garlic powder, onion powder, and seasoning salt. If I’m frying fish, I like Old Bay. If I’m cooking chicken, I like Mrs. Dash. Go crazy.
Mix all ingredients together with a fork.
Coat some meat in mayo or an egg wash and bake and/or fry it. This is what I use on my chicken strips now. It’s amazingly versatile.
Just look at this pork chop!
Oh yeah. Look how crispy that breading looks.
The parmesan lends a delightful flavor and is dirt cheap. The flaxmeal adds a little fat and some valuable nutrition. The almond meal has the best texture, but is too expensive and calorically dense to use on its own. This trifecta is the best!
One batch of the breading is enough to coat two servings of meat – chicken strips for my husband and I, two big fish fillets, two porkchops, etc. Just scale up or down depending on the amount of things you want to bread – the important thing is to keep the 3:2:1 ratio. At 130cal, 1g net carbs, 11g fat, and 4g protein, it’s perfect for most macros.
