These Parmesan Zucchini Bites make a fabulous appetizer or side dish whether you follow a keto diet or not! Give them a try!
- 2 medium-sized zucchinis
- ½ c parmesan cheese (from the shaker can)
- ½ c pork rind crumbs
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1 egg, beaten
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
While the oven preheats, cut the zucchini into 1/4″ thick slices.
Place about 2 ounces of pork rinds into a food processor and process into crumbs. Alternatively, you can place the pork rinds into a Ziploc bag and break them into crumbs with a rolling pin.
Place ½ c of pork rind crumbs, the parmesan cheese, basil, thyme as well as salt and pepper (to taste) in a bowl and mix well.
Place one beaten egg in a separate bowl.
Dip the sliced zucchini into the egg, and then dredge in the crumb mixture (as seen below) before placing them onto a lined or well-greased baking sheet.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the zucchini is softened and the coating is crispy.
