Okay, sounds strange… tastes awesome. They are very easy to make, and you use them in the same way you would use panko or regular breadcrumbs. They are gluten-free, and Keto-diet friendly. The main photo is my baked parmesan chicken, using pork-rind breadcrumbs. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
