"breading" for the deep fryer...

ok - so i got me a deep fryer as a wedding present - I've "breaded" things before with almond flour and/or pork rinds - but always just fried those things in a pan...

what can be used as a "breading" in the deep fryer? would almond flour work? Have any of you breaded anything with pork rinds and used the deep fryer?
would coconut flour work?

I have an idea to make coconut flour onion rings...

anyone???

also - what DO you use your fryer for? I got it mainly for chicken wings and to make my husband his fries and onion rings...

I bought one of those deep fryers but eventually gave it away and just use my cast iron dutch oven instead - the fryer was too much of a pain to clean! LOL!!

I've done beer battered stuff by mixing 2 cups of Carbquik with a bottle (12 oz) of LC beer, mix well and let stand 15 minutes or so. I did onion rings that way and they were really good - also did some shrimp.

I like my wings baked so no help there!

Oh, I made some yummy hush puppies and fried okra the other night, but I had some LC corn muffin mix (the old Atkins mixes, I hoarded a bunch of them when they were discontinued) - alongside some fried catfish.

I think there are a few doughnut recipes on here, and I'm pretty sure I posted my pumpkin beignets, all of which use the deep fryer.

I haven't used mine in a long time, either, but the last time I used it, I think it was for wings.
For breading though, (this was on the stove though I don't think it would make a difference) I had good luck with a mixture of wheat bran and parmesan (with egg to make it stick), it was very crispy like bread crumbs for a fraction of the carbs.

ETA: I've fried with almond flour before, but it doesn't get crispy like you would expect.

I'm usually happy if my experiments don't explode. Never know until you try!

When I’m deep frying meat I usually dredge the meat in vital wheat gluten first, that stuff will stick to anything better than the best industrial strength glue!!!! Then it goes in an egg wash and then some grated parm cheese.

When I’m frying vegetables I use the same thing except I mix a little bit of my home ground popcorn with the parm cheese.

Gram (chickpea) flour makes a great tempura batter for anything. Just needs to be seasoned very well to get the bitter chickpea taste out of it. Salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders do the trick nicely!
