The first order of business with this recipe is making keto-friendly breadcrumbs to use for your seasoning. To start, add your milk, organic egg, and olive oil into a microwave-safe mug and whisk it all together. It’s important that you make sure to use olive oil when following this recipe instead of any type of vegetable oil as it’s a much healthier option that’s full of good monounsaturated fats. And unlike vegetable oil, which is high in inflammation causing omega-6 fats, olive oil will actually lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.
