One of the things I find tricky about eating keto is finding interesting veggie side dishes to accompany whatever meat dish I’m having. Green beans and asparagus are great but a girl needs more options!
I came up with this recipe after seeing some deep fried mushrooms on Pinterest. I initially was going to deep fry them but figured it would be too messy and, honestly, seemed like too much effort at the time.
Anyway, I went with the oven and they worked out amazingly well!

Keto Oven Fried Mushrooms
1/3 cup ground pork rinds
1 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp parsley
1 Tbsp powdered Parmesan
12 medium button mushrooms
Preheat oven to 400. Line an oven safe dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
Combine ground pork rinds, garlic powder, salt & pepper, paprika, parsley, and parmesan in a large ziplock bag.
Beat egg in a small bowl.
Dip mushroom in egg to coat. Then toss into the pork rind mixture to coat.
Place on prepared pizza pan and repeat with remaining mushrooms.
Cook at 400 for approx 15 minutes, flipping halfway through cook time.
If you want to crisp up the top more then place them under the broiler for 1 minute.
Mushrooms are a great keto vegetable and putting a tasty pork rind coating on them makes them a great side dish. You could serve them with a keto ranch dip or garlic aioli if you wanted to but I didn’t find it necessary!
For a potluck you could make up a whole tray of them by easily double or tripling the recipe.
