Check my food blog. I made paleo whey protein pancakes and then dried them out into breadcrumbs. Stuffing for thanksgiving was awesome.
Lesson learned. Season the batter as opposed to after drying.
Parmesan is great for some purposes!
The best substitute for bread crumbs is lobster.
What are you using it for? I made meatballs the other day that called for 1/4 c breadcrumbs. I put a rice cake in the blender and used that. Worked great.
Depends. If you're using it for a coating, you can crush pork rinds. That's what I use for my coconut chicken - a 50/50 mix of crushed pork rinds and unsweetened shredded coconut. Dip the chicken in beaten egg, roll in the pork rinds/coconut, then bake.
If it's for something like meatloaf, I just use an egg as a binder and don't bother with replacing the bread crumbs with anything.

Toasted rice or quinoa flour. If you're concerned about carb intake, it won't add up to much.
Although, when it comes to meatballs, meatloaf, and seafood patties, there's really no need for any flour. As long as the thing can stay together long enough to get cooked through, it'll turn out just the same.
