A Healthy Alternative

  • Try this easy alternative to carb-heavy breadcrumbs or Panko using fresh or leftover keto bread, rolls, or even keto croutons.
  • Double up the batch and keep it in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze it in zippered bags for up to 4 months.
  • Portion out what is needed and use it plain or mix in favorite seasonings such as Italian seasoning. Add it to turkey or chicken meatballs, or mix keto breadcrumbs with a garlic herb seasoning and sprinkle over parmesan chicken. So many options!

Ingredients and Variations

Use this keto breadcrumb substitute in any recipe that needs a binder or a crispy topping!

Keto Bread: Any keto or low-carb bread can work in this recipe. If time is short, use a bag of pork rinds as a replacement! Simply put them in a large, zippered bag and crush with a rolling pin! The same method can be used for keto crackers as well, or the bread can be toasted and crushed if there is no food processor available.

Seasonings: Keep these DIY seasoning blends on hand to customize breadcrumbs for each recipe! For taco night dishes, add southwestern seasoning to breadcrumbs on a cheese sauce, or mix in some chicken seasoning to make a light and savory, crispy coating for chicken! Keto breadcrumbs can be used on zucchini or to top a casserole too.
