Pork Rind Bread Crumbs Fried Green Tomatoes

Pork King Good Low Carb Keto Air Fryer Pork Rind Fried Green Tomatoes

The ultimate summer side dish!! We've keto-fied a classic southern favorite with our Pork Rind Crumbs! This recipe meets our two basic requirements: EASY & DELICIOUS! We dipped them in ranch and the results were magical. This is definitely being added into heavy rotation in our household.

We actually experimented and made the recipe two ways: in the air fryer and pan-fried. While the pan-fried version did come out slightly crisper, the air fryer version was our pick for winner because it cooked evenly and turned a beautiful golden brown. Either way, you'll be happy. Here's how it went down:

Prep time: 10 minutes     Cook time: 14 minutes    


  • 1 cup Pork King Good Pork Rind Crumbs
  • 2 green tomatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream or Half & Half
  • seasoning of choice (we like a cajun seasoning using salt, garlic powder, black pepper, and red pepper)
  • cooking spray


  • Slice green tomatoes about a half inch thick
  • Combine your egg and cream in a bowl and stir until blended
  • Pour your Pork Rind Crumbs on a plate and mix in seasoning of choice
  • Dip each tomato slice in the egg mixture and then coat in the Pork Rind Crumbs until fully covered.
  • Spray each side of each slice with an oil cooking spray and cook in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 6-7 minutes on each side. (If pan frying, coat the bottom of your pan with oil and cook on medium high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side). Drain excess grease on a paper towel lined plate).
  • Serve with dip of choice, and Stuff Your Pork-King Face!
