    Absolutely PHENOMENAL, for keto-friendly nugs man! Wish I had known about whey-powder coating, prior to finding this recipe. Nevertheless, this opens a whole new dimension of fried deliciousness for my wife and I, all while maintaining low carb intake! Many thanks for sharing and I HIGHLY recommend this recipe!!!
