What is Pork Rind Panko?
Pork Rind Panko is made from pork rinds that are ground to a breadcrumb-like texture. These are an amazing substitute for breading on any of your favorite foods! You only need one ingredient for this easy recipe–pork rinds! Pork Rind Panko is also very easy to prepare; all you’ll need is a blender or a food processor.
Pork Rind Panko adds an incredible depth of flavor to your food while giving that signature panko crunch. If you prefer your crumbs to be a little more fine, you can grind them for longer to ensure you get the texture you prefer. This breadcrumb alternative is zero carb, gluten free, Whole30 and paleo, making it perfect for many dietary restrictions you may have!
How do I make these keto breadcrumbs?
This recipe only requires one easy step! Simply put your breadcrumbs into your food processor or blender and blitz them until they’ve reached your preferred texture! It couldn’t be any easier! If you would like a larger breadcrumb, you’ll grind your pork rinds for a shorter amount of time. For a finer crumb, grind for longer.
Carbs in Pork Rind Panko
Unlike traditional breadcrumbs, this Pork Rind Panko can be enjoyed completely guilt free! There are ZERO carbs in these homemade breadcrumbs! The measurements for traditional breadcrumbs and these low carb breadcrumbs is 1:1, so if your recipe calls for a cup of panko, you’ll need a cup of your Pork Rind Panko. No math involved!
What’s the texture of Pork Panko Crumbs?
One of the best things about these keto breadcrumbs is that you can customize the texture however you like. If you like a larger crumb, you won’t need to grind your pork rinds for quite as long. If you enjoy a finer texture, just keep blitzing until you’ve gotten the size you like.
How many cups of keto breadcrumbs can I expect to get out of a bag of pork rinds?
In my experience, you get about a cup of Pork Rind Panko from one ounce of pork rinds. So if you have a five ounce bag, you can expect to get five cups from that. If you grind your rinds down to a finer texture, you may notice a little under a cup is produced per ounce.
Pork Rind Flavor
Pork rinds really don’t have much flavor to me, other than the saltiness in them. That’s why I love these keto breadcrumbs in my recipes! If your pork rinds are flavored, expect that flavor to carry over into your breadcrumbs. I’ve tried this recipe in the oven, Air Fryer and on the stove top and the results are always a delicious crunchy texture without a noticeable flavor!
If you want to use this recipe to make Italian breadcrumbs, you can just add Italian seasoning to the pork rinds before you grind them. I would recommend using a lower salt version of the seasoning, since you are already getting a generous amount from the pork rinds themselves.
How to Store keto breadcrumbs
To store this easy keto recipe, just keep in a jar or plastic container with an airtight lid and store on the counter or in your pantry. These breadcrumbs will stay fresh for up to two months.
