  1. Chancy

    For the grated parm, are you using Kraft parm (on the shelf, not refrigerated)?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Chancy. Yes just the shelf stable parmesan cheese is used for this recipe. Hope this help’s.

  2. June

    Is there a substitute for pork rinds?

  3. Julie

    How long will this be good for since there is cheese in it?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great question! This will be good for up to two weeks. Enjoy!

  4. steve fluder

    when making meatloaf, do you substitute one cup of REGULAR bread crumbs for one cup of KETO bread crumbs?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! That will work and bring more seasoning and flavor into your meatloaf! 😋

  5. JANINE

    How do you measure the pork rinds? Before they are ground or just crush first and measure? It would be easier to weigh them.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Janine! Yes, crush first and then use the 3 cups crushed pork rinds as listed above. Hope this helps!

      • Ryan Horsch

        How many ounces does it take to get 3 cups crushed?

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          Great question! I crush my own and once crushed they are about 1/2 the size. So I would guess around 6 cups.

  6. Josee

    Can’t stand pork rinds. The smell is so off putting. However this recipe was different enough to catch my eye so I made it. Used on your chicken recipe and also use As breading for baked eggplant slices It’s delicious! So good !
    I make 1/2 recipe at a time, I’ve had it in fridge for about 3 weeks, just fine

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh awesome! SO happy you enjoyed this on your eggplant slices! Thanks for taking a moment to share with us, Josee! 🤗 We sure appreciate the feedback!

  7. RDF

    These keto-crumbs are fantastic!
    Not only did they work perfectly – giving a beautifully crisp coat, which at the same time stayed moist in just the right amount – but they’re a hell of a lot nicer than bread-crumbs. No comparison!
    I’ve tried several different ways of making a pork-crackling substitute for bread-crumbs, and they’ve invariably been a disaster. Your addition of the Parmesan cheese made all the difference in the world.
    Thank you!
    (For your reference, I was crumbing lamb-brains for deep drying; which had first been coated in coconut flour, and beaten egg; and for the purpose, your crumb recipe was better than good — it was perfect).

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there! I would have to agree with you on this one! The parmesan cheese gives it a great flavor along with the additional spices. So glad that your dish was perfect👌 Thank you for the feedback ❤

    Do you need to store in refrigerator?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You do not need to store them in the refrigerator.

  9. Krysti Zeiger

    I apologize up front for this crazy question. I’m new to the keto journey and don’t care for pork but really love crispy chicken. Will this make the dish taste of pork? I’m imagining pulling out my breaded chicken looking so delicious, biting into it and it tasting like bacon :). Thanks so much

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Great question! I use this recipe all the time and I don’t think it tastes like pork or bacon. I also see some feedback from readers who hate pork rinds but do love this recipe. Hope this helps!

  10. Denise Warren

    Would this recipe be best cooked in the oven or deep fried please?

  11. Lydia

    Pork rinds from like Walmart? About how many bags (or 1?) to get to the recipe amount? Thanks!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You can use any brand of pork rinds you want! I get mine from the Dollar Tree. I crush my own and once crushed they are about 1/2 the size. So I would guess around 6 cups of pork rinds to start.
