Instant Grain-Free Breadcrumbs

Valentina

This is more of a hack than a recipe. To make low-carb breadcrumbs in a flash, simply grind up grain-free crackers into a breadcrumb consistency. A food processor is by far the best for this, but transferring crackers to a resealable bag and crushing them by hand can work in a pinch. I've also added the option to make these Italian seasoned with the addition of fresh parsley and parmesan cheese. These crumbs can be used interchangeably with traditional breadcrumbs.

Shopping List
    Breadcrumbs
  • 4 1/4 ounces grain-free crackers (such as Simple Mills) Seasoning (Optional)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup freshly parsley
  • black pepper, to taste

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Place the crackers into the base of a food processor and pulse until they reach a breadcrumb consistency. Once the crackers have been ground, pulse in the optional seasoning for a few seconds. Transfer the crumbs to an airtight container or use immediately.
  2. Serve: Toss these unseasoned breadcrumbs with pasta, or use the seasoned crumbs as a coating for chicken and/or fish.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: As reference, 4.25 ounces of Simple Mills is equal to about 2 cups of whole crackers. Once blended, it will make 1 cup of breadcrumbs (without added seasoning).

This is more of a hack than a recipe. To make low-carb breadcrumbs in a flash, simply combine almond meal and optional pork rinds in a food processor until they reach a breadcrumb consistency. I've also added the option to make these Italian seasoned with the addition of fresh parsley and parmesan cheese. These crumbs can be used interchangeably with traditional breadcrumbs.

Shopping List
    Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 6 tablespoons ground pork rinds (Note 1)
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste Seasoning (Optional)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup freshly parsley, chopped

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Stir together the breadcrumb ingredients in a bowl, or with a food processor to get a finer crumb (preferred method). Stir in the optional seasonings if desired. Transfer the crumbs to an airtight container or use immediately.
  2. Serve: Toss these unseasoned breadcrumbs with pasta, or use the seasoned crumbs as a coating for chicken and/or fish.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Pork rinds do have a strong flavor, so do not use them in dishes where you would rather not taste pork (in fish dishes, for example). To not use the pork, it may be substituted with an additional 1/2 cup of almond meal.
