Instead of crackers and flour just use pork rinds. They have zero carbs and 4 grams of fat. Just crush the pork rinds.

I would imagine you could coat them in soya flour and chopped nuts, for a low carb version? Sounds yummy though!
This sounds really good, however it is not a low carb dish...I would substute the flour and crackers for something else, only use egg whites, and use No salt Ms. Dash...

Would work for south beach diet phase 2 if you switched the flour to Whole Wheat and made sure the crackers were whole wheat also.
