OMGoodness, everyone in the family will love these. Great idea for parties or anytime!
This was delicious! I tried it the way it was written and also keto (using crushed pork rinds instead of bread crumbs) both were good.
My partner practically inhaled them. He said he wants it every night 🙂

So glad you and your partner enjoyed this amazing recipe, Tobius ! Great idea to use crushed pork rinds. I'll bet that added a great flavor and texture. Thank you for sharing, and for being part of our community!
I have a question about the first step of this process I'm new to certain ways of cooking but on the part where I mix the melted butter and garlic inna a bowl how would you recommend me doin that? Do I just melt the butter nad put the garlic in or do I melt the butter with the garlic in it? And how would I go about melting it stove top or microwave it?
Donna John
I put mine in a small bowl, cover with a paper towel and microwave until melted. That's the easiest way to do it.
