Low Carb Ricotta Bites

As a kid my mother used to buy ricotta and we would eat it by spreading it on a slice of bread.  I do miss those days and miss eating ricotta.  Now I still enjoy it, although it’s out of the container with a spoon because I no longer eat bread.  I truly love these fried bites of cheese smothered in a tomatoe sauce with some basil.

Make Ricotta Bites

These little bites are very easy to make with just a few ingredients.  You can add your favourite spices and herbs to the pork rind crumbs and make them as tasty as you want them to be.  I added salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried oregano.  Check out the youtube video to see how I made them.  (recipe below video.

What You Need

The low carb ricotta bites are exactly what I need when craving something crispy and fried.  Plus this dish looks a little sexy when plated with some sauce and basil leaves.  Which also sets the mood to devour these all on your own 🙂
