Parmesan Zucchini Bites (Keto-Friendly)

  • Author: Wendy Hilton


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.
