Easy, Convenient Breading Mix - Low Carb & Family Friendly Options!
  • 4 cups “crumbs”—choose from any or all of the following in any combination you desire, depending on how low carb you need for the mix to be and how “normal” you need for the mix to taste (!)**:
  • Crushed pork rinds
  • Panko crumbs
  • Low carb dried bread crumbs or dried low carb pita or flat bread crumbs (see directions below for making bread crumbs/pita crumbs)
  • Low carb or healthy crackers, tortilla chips, or zwieback (ground finely)
  • 4 to 6 TBSP All Purpose Seasoning Mix (I like to use upper amount since I usually combine this breading mix with parmesan cheese.)+
  1. Night before: Lay bread slices all over the kitchen to dry out overnight. OR Toast the slices in a toaster or put in 250 degree oven until toasted or dried out but not so hard they cannot be ground/crumbed. You may also do something similar with low carb pitas or flat breads…you just need to get them “dried” out some.
  2. Pulse toasted/crispy bread slices or pitas/flat bread in food processor a few at a time until you have created fine bread crumbs.
  3. Note: To use, you may use as is (check each recipe) or add grated Parmesan at the time of using—for each cup of breading mix, add one cup of grated Parmesan cheese. (You may use equal part of the mix above and equal part Parmesan during the “mix making” if more convenient; however, you would need to keep the mix in the freezer (or at least the refrigerator) due to the cheese in it. Because my freezer space is always at a premium, I add my Parmesan at the time I am using each cup of mix.
**When determining which “crumb” options you want to include, consider the fact that many of my recipes that call for this breading mix call for half breading mix and half Parmesan cheese (a nearly no carb food). This will further reduce your per cup carbohydrate count when using it. Or you may use this mix as is.

+If you do not have All Purpose Seasoning Mix on hand, you may use another all purpose type of seasoning (not a salt substitute as that would be too salty tasting). Alternately, you may also add seasonings instead, such as the following: 1 TBSP pepper, 1 TBSP salt, 1 TBSP paprika, 2 tsp garlic powder, 2 tsp celery salt, 2 tsp dried basil, 1 tsp thyme.
