You can make keto breadcrumbs in several different ways. Some people use almond flour or almond meal; others use coconut flour. I prefer to use pork rinds, which are crunchy like breadcrumbs.
Natural pork rinds contain nothing except fried pork skin and salt, which means they have absolutely zero carbs in them. And the texture when ground is very similar to regular breadcrumbs.
You could also use flavored pork rinds to enhance the flavor without having to season them yourself.
You can find pork rinds at most grocery stores, although I would recommend that you check out the ingredients. Some brands have preservatives, and others do not. I like the Utz brand pork rinds because you can get a barrel of them. They are nothing but pork skins and salt.
