Set up three dredging stations: one with almond flour, one with a beaten egg, and one with crushed pork rinds mixed with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Dredge each cheese ball first in the almond flour, then dip in the egg, and finally coat with the pork rind mixture.
Place the coated cheese balls on a plate and freeze for at least an hour to harden.
In a pot, heat about 2 inches of oil. Once hot, gently add the cheese balls straight from the freezer.
