If you took out the pork rinds, would be ok.
Good tasty snack... I used the spicy pork rinds to give it a little spice.

I left out the pork rinds and added some nature's seasoning. They were really good.

You can't have pork rinds on South Beach, but sounds good!

I've been craving for fried Zucchini so I'm going to try this just leaving out the pork rinds.

All Bran cereal crushed is a good coating.

Very good recipe. I used the spicy pork rinds and omitted the cheese. I had a really hard time getting the crushed pork rinds to stick though.

This sounded tasty until I got to the pork rind portion.

This sounds so yummy! Crusting with pork grinds is something I thought about after I bought a bag. Happening tonite!
